    whose parents doesn't want their child to be a doctor

    Hi,

    I would like to ask if this sentence "whose parents doesn't want their child to be a doctor" is grammatically correct?
    Should i use doesn't or don't in the sentence and why? Also, should i use child or children in the sentence and why?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
