Does it bother you when people refer to their child as "it"?

(More so speaking of newborns and babies.....but really any age.)

  • i always call them it before i know the sex, but i don't really care what other people call their children so no, it doesn't bother me in the slightest

  • I'm not talking about pregnancy and babies, I mean after they are born.

  • I've never heard of a child being referred to as it after they're born. There's the book, but that's obviously not what this question is about.

  • yes, but i don't hear it and if i did i will simply ask them what are they talking about, because "it" can be confusing when discussing a child

  • I probably haven't heard that but a couple of times in my life. I'm sure I corrected that person.
