Situation --- typical American household -- two parents, one child, no history of endangerment, neglect or abuse noted. Child is 11 years old and tells his parents that he feels like he's really a girl. He wants to begin gender reassignment. Parents are very concerned and think he's way too young to make a decision like that. They do not start the process of gender reassignment. Should this child be taken away from his parents?
Only "taken away" in a coroner's wagon or a hearse if the child resorts to suicide as remaining perceived recourse.
Seriously, get a life. These "concern" threads are too frequent at debatepolitics.com and too successful in attracting eyeballs not to be
regarded as diverting from the attention deserved by actual pressing political problems consequential to most of our households.
IOW, the wealthiest, RWE donors to G.O.P. invest huge sums intended to divert attention to non-issues like this thread's "question".
This is the "return" on their investment,
all of the funding of "the bi-partisan infrastructure lefislation was borrowed and the IRS
budgeted appropriation is still lower than it was in 2013, now rinse, repeat....
If we need creative accounting to invest for the future, go for it.

"...But how did the Senate get there? The politics were fairly obvious: Infrastructure spending is very popular
, and a significant number of Republicans didn’t want to be seen as complete obstructionists. What wasn’t clear, however, was how the spending would be financed.
On the surface, Republican demands should have made agreement impossible. G.O.P. senators were adamantly opposed to tax increases
. They also blocked proposals
to give the I.R.S. resources to crack down on widespread tax evasion — a stance that even cynics like yours truly found a bit shocking. What kind of party more or less openly aligns itself with wealthy tax cheats?"
