Experimental: Information brochure
Intervention: The parents are given a specific information brochure that describes the procedures that the child is going through during anesthesia when it has been decided that the child is going to have the surgery.
Behavioral: Specific information brochure

- Satisfaction with information [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Self-reported satisfaction with provided information on a 5 point Likert scale where 1 is less satisfied and 5 is high satisfaction (range 1-5). In total four questions (sum score range 4-20)
- Preparedness for the operating room setting [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Self-reported to what degree parents feel prepared as to what will happen before/during induction of anaesthesia on a 5 point Likert scale where 1 is less prepared and 5 is very well prepared (range 1-5). In total two questions (sum score range 2-10)
- Perceived Stress Score (PSS-14) [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Self-reported perceived stress measured by 14 questions on a 5-point Likert scale where 1 is Never and 5 is very often. Range for the total score is 1-70.
