I personally have not encountered this situation either. However, I feel it is something important to consider when professionals are having these conversations. I think the age of the child is often important-if they are older are they able to participate in the conversation to give any feedback or express preferences. I think it can be a challenge when the patient is very young and parents make decisions based on their religious beliefs-hoping their children will follow the same beliefs when they are older.

It almost seems that it would be something ethics could help with in situations where parents are very adamant about a decision or view point.
