Question for the groupů
Does anyone know about the legalities of questioning a minor (lets say a 9 yr old) about the possibilities of parental abuse without that parent's consent to question them?
If someone witnessed potentially abusive behavior of a child in your hospital and notified you, could you question the child without the parents permission?
