I would like to teach my daughter the proper way to address a male friend of the family. I am trying to teach her to address females friends of the family as "Miss Judy" or "Miss Lisa". But I am not sure if "Mr" is the most proper for a male. I could be wrong. Any advice would be helpful.

Mister sounds fine I don't see nothing wrong with that. Eventually they will get there.
Unless you want to use Junior...LOL

I wouldn't call "Miss" proper. "Ms." would be better and less likely to offend. "Miss" used to be the title used for un-married women. "Ms." encompasses all women and is less offensive. I don't know what you'd use besides "Mr." We are teaching our daughter to be respectful by calling people what they wish to be called. Some friends of the family will be Ms. and Mr., while others go by their first names. We ask what they wish to be called, and that is what we teach her. I HATE being called anything by my first name and I always ask people to please have their children call me by my first name. I think it's more proper and polite to ask folks how they wish to be addressed. But If you want to stick with titles no matter what, I'd use "Mr." and "Ms."
