Is there anything wrong with a grown man calling his parents "Mommy and Daddy"?

say, a man over 30.

  • I don't usually hear it, but if he likes to and they like it, then why not. :)

  • Only weird if he is using baby talk to say it and asking for his blankey and milkmilk. LOL

  • that's a little weird. Usually by adulthood they drop the "Y" part at the end and its mom and dad

  • I would be wondering about his maturity level if he still is.

  • I don't think so, it's a term of endearment. I think it's nice to think of a man loving his parents so much that he uses that endearing term. I for one know that my MIL would love if my husband still called her that lol. As soon as we got married she wanted me to be calling her mommy, and she always signs everything mommy. If that's what his parents want and the way he was raised calling them than why not.

  • Eh, My hubby doesn't call his Mother Mommy, but he called his Father Daddy until the day he passed. Im not sure why..... I never really thought about until now.
