If the mother of a four-year-old gender non-binary child asked for your help to stop their daycare assigning them to boys’ or girls’ activities, what would you say?

What if a now-separated parent with joint guardianship wants to prevent their 11-year-old child from being put on hormone blockers?

Or if a university student says their gender assigned at birth should not be recorded on their university records?
