Default Minor with Depression

If a 17 year old comes with hx of depression and no signs of suicidal tendency and wish to keep this depression secret from parents,can we do that given Minors if not emancipated cannnot take any decision. It is written in UWORLD QID:10754 n the Answer section that yes we should not inform the patient's parents even if he/she is a minor and not emancipated. I am a bit confused.Can someone explain please.
