I am confused by the appropriate use of gender-specific object pronouns in English.
I am writing an article and and am having trouble with this line:
Has your child done something that you appropriate? Let _______ know!
What should go in the blank?
I cannot use "him" because the child might be a girl. I cannot use "her" because the child might be a boy. I cannot use "them" because the line is referring to a single person.
English a confusing language, at least for me.
