What do your child's friends call you and your SO?

Both of my daughters friends call my husband and I Mr. and Mrs.Russiani. My oldest's best friends call us Theresa and Kevin. My youngest's best friend calls us mom and dad (her and my daughter came up with it since her friend is here so much you would think she was our 3rd daughter) What do your teen's friends call you and your SO?

  • I see this one guy. A Manager at Wendy's. He always called my this way, Hi Sherri's Mom. Now after Chemo I lost all of my hair he doesn't recognise me at all. I guess I'll always be Sherri's Mom!!

  • it is wrong to believe that you are superior to someone and they are not worthy to call you by your first name simply because you were born before they were. it's not respect because respect should go both ways. you're not better than a child because you're older. they should respect you and you should respect them and if you make them call you by your last name then you should call them by their last name.

  • I don't have teenagers but when I was a teen we knew to call adults "Mr/Mrs" until they told us otherwise.
