Why did Dr. Thurman call Donnie's parents on the night of the party?
Dr. Thurman had to tell his parents that Donnie had committed a crime, as by law. It’s believed that the session was the day before the party, although no explicit timeframe is given. If a minor confesses to a teacher or counselor that he has committed a crime in which no one was hurt, the adult must contact the child’s parent.
