Michelle and her ex-husband, Kyle, say when their daughter Aubrey was born intersex, they agreed to raise her as a girl. Until recently, they say they’ve been co-parenting Aubrey, now 4, as a girl, but Michelle claims Aubrey has been insisting that she’s a boy, so Michelle says she traded in Aubrey’s “girl” toys, clothes and hairstyle to appease her child’s wishes. Kyle says he was furious when he saw that Michelle cut Aubrey’s long hair without consulting him – and ever since, Aubrey has been living as a boy with his mom during the week, and as a girl with her dad on the weekends. Kyle’s current wife, Brittany, says she’s been running interference and wrote to Dr. Phil in a desperate attempt to end this gender war. Can Dr. Phil help these parents become a united front for the sake of their child?
