I don´t see anything wrong in it. There are way too many idiot parents out there, who do not have their children regularly checked out at doctors and
this can cause serious problems in the future of the kid, if some disease is caught too late.
Here the doctor is at schools and checks the kids out every year. Just basic as weighing, measuring height, eyesight, asking about health issues etc.
If for example, the kid complains about some issues or development is not normal or eyes are not fine, the doctor first asks the parents to take the
kid to doctor. If they don´t, then school interferes and makes a doctor appointment (although healthcare is universal)
For kids going to different trainings, physical practices, the sports clubs are required to have every single under 19-year-old member of them have a
full stress test and sports doctor check-up, including lung capacity test, blood analysis etc. It is covered by the government. Many kids around the
world have simply dropped dead during the practics due to overtraining. Sports doctor determines whether there are some health issues, that might stop
the kid from doing sports or not (a´la some heart problem or some other issue, which might become fatal, if the kid continues full trainings).
Some parents have their kids checked only when the problem arises, but sometimes this is already too late. Regular check-up are needed in order to
prevent such issues and that should definitely not be parents choice, as it can become fatal for the kid or ruin his/her life. No parent should have
the choice of harming their children in a negative way, whether because of their actions or inactions.
I see nothing wrong with this.
