When talking about a specific, non-plural, child who is your son or daughter, is it normal to use "child" rather than "son" or "daughter"?
I went with my child to the doctor's today.
I did a quick google for "With my child", and mainly came across cases involving hypothetical children who are not of a specified gender, for example
How do I start a conversation with my child about stammering?
If it's currently not common to use "child" about a specific child, are people advocating such usage in order to not be discriminatory about gender?
