If parents aren’t wanting something to happen, 1) Acknowledge the parents and their thoughts. 2) Make a judgement yourself as to whether the child or young person needs to have something happen at this time and if not arrange it for another time. If it does, then explain to parents the rationale behind why it needs to be done now. 3) Discuss with parents if it is better that they leave for a short time whilst it is done. It could be, due to emotion or stress, they are considering their own interests first rather than their child or young persons.
