CS pediatric cases?

Is it common to get cases with kids as the patient for CS?
It's common to have peds cases but there won't be a young kid there. It's either a phone case or, like what I had, they'll say the kid is out of the room getting testing and you talk to a parent. No exam is performed. I did have two other "peds" cases where the patient was supposedly a teenager but the actor was clearly an adult. The door info clearly said their parents had given permission for you to examine the patient without them present.
