Medical Dilemma

Posted by: ccless1

Ok so, here's the dilemma: there's a young individual who is 17 and has a disease which will kill him within three months (maybe less). You have informed the parents of the boy first, and they ask you not to tell him for another month so that he can enjoy at least part of the live he has left. Should you tell the boy, or respect the parent's wishes?
