  • not really. I think out of respect, it should be mrs or mr until they're adults ( the friends) and mom and dad forever.

  • No, I wouldnt be okay with my kids using my first name but I have no problems with their friends using my first name. Most of my friends and I always referred to each others parents as mom or dad we never used their names. I do have a few kids who call me mom and I am fine with that too.

  • I would have a problem with my kids calling me by my first name, but not with their friends using it. I'll probably insist that they use that rather than Mrs. _____.

  • As long as they treat me with respect, I don't care what they call me. My kids friends have always called me Ms. Anna. It's a southern thing.
