When President Donald Trump’s first child, Tiffany, was born in February 2018, a lot of the nation’s parents thought she was too small.
Now, they’re saying they’ll keep their hopes alive for a second child.
Trump’s decision to name his third child, Barron, with a baby name, Barron’s, has stoked debate about how the Trump administration should handle the issue of baby naming.
The president has also pushed to make it easier for parents to file a federal lawsuit over the names of their children, a move that is also drawing widespread criticism from civil rights groups and some doctors who say the practice could lead to a rush to have children that are at higher risk of genetic disorders.
The White House said Wednesday that the administration will continue to take steps to help parents of children with rare genetic disorders by providing additional guidance to doctors and hospitals.
But the administration also announced plans to take the step by issuing guidance that will let parents opt for the name of their child over that of the parent who has the disorder.
The new guidance, released by the Office of Management and Budget, will outline ways for health care providers to accommodate the preferences of parents who choose to name their children.
It also will include guidance on how to provide information to parents who want to name a child using the child’s full name.
The guidance comes after the Trump Administration said in December that it was exploring legal options over naming the first son, Barron.
It has also received complaints from people who say they feel pressured to name children based on the condition of their parents, particularly those with Down syndrome.
The Trump administration has argued that it has made clear that naming children with Down Syndrome will be allowed under existing law, which says that names are given to children with disabilities in order to “protect the well-being and well-beings of children.”
Critics say the new guidance has the potential to increase pressure on parents to name the child, even though it is unclear what the new policy would do if the parents opt out.
“It’s not going to be good enough if we don’t give parents the choice,” said Sarah Kustrow, a clinical social worker who is a child psychologist and mother of a first child with Down’s syndrome.
“If parents are forced to give up the ability to name them, then they will feel like they are losing control of the process.”
Kustrows child was born with Down and is the mother of her own child.
She said she believes the guidance is an effort by the Trump government to take away some of the parents’ ability to make the choice.
“I’m hopeful it will open up the door for other parents to make a choice as well,” Kustroses child said.
The Office of Government Ethics said in a statement Wednesday that it supports the new guidelines, but it is concerned that some families might be discouraged from making the change because of their concerns.
The agency said that in the first seven months of this year, it received 1,717 complaints about parents choosing a name that is not their child’s name, according to the statement.
That represents a 6 percent increase from the same period in 2018, the statement said.
“The OGE believes that all families should have the ability, at their own pace, to make decisions about how their child is named, regardless of their condition or wishes,” it said.
But it added that the agency has received “numerous calls from parents who feel they have been forced to name an infant, particularly when the child has a genetic disorder that is affecting their life or is in a developmental or medical condition.”
KUSTROW SAD ABOUT CASE The White and Black Lives Matter movements have grown in recent years.
They have been called a growing “black power movement” and a “rebellion” that is a response to the nations criminal justice system.
KUSTRYL WASHINGTON, a mother of four, is a practicing physician who has worked in mental health, social services and child and adolescent psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital in New York City for more than 30 years.
The day of her baby girl’s birth, she decided she wanted to name her child Barron because her daughter had Down’s Syndrome.
“When we named Barron, I thought, ‘I don’t want my daughter to have a name with a negative connotation,'” she said.
She had a hard time finding doctors who would recommend naming her daughter with the condition.
“That’s when I was like, ‘Why not just name her Tiffany?'”
The first year, she took her daughter to a pediatrician who recommended she use the name Tiffany because it is more common in the African-American community.
“She said Tiffany is more associated with the African American community, which was interesting,” she said of the pediatrician.
“Because we have the same genetic makeup, I would imagine she would say that Tiffany would be more associated in the Black community.”
A year later, when she asked for help with the name, KUSTRIEWS doctor suggested using a
