  • You need to be a little more clear, I don't understand what you are asking.

  • i see nothing wrong with that. if you are a mother figure to him why can't he call you mom. there's nothing wrong with having two moms

  • Are you saying he called YOU mom? Well, that's cool. I thought you were upset because he called your mother.

  • If he called you mom, then that might mean he's feeling closer and more comfortable with you. There's certainly nothing wrong with that.

  • Can you please clarify your question? If it is the case where he called you mom, and it doesn't cause him conflict among family members then I say be honored!!

  • She typed my for me replace it and reread it'll make sense if he has an active mom tht is present in his life I personally wouldn't let him call me mom bc I know I wouldn't want my child calling another woman mom but if is mom is absent and you are taking over that role then I would feel comfortable w that and I would just be frank and say I am flattered you're calling me mom and I'm always here for you but I don't think your mom would want you to call me mom I'm not trying to sound harsh that's just how I feel if I were 12 id never call someone else mom
