A few years ago, a loving, caring, intelligent and thoughtful married couple came to my surgery, and they were very distressed because they had just found out that their child had been questioning their gender at school and the school had, for several months, not informed them.

Friend assure me that parents will be informed and included in those conversations, except in the most extraordinary circumstances?
