Do your kids call you mom or by your given name?

I have friends who lo called them by their given name. Just wondering if anyone else kids do.

  • I do'nt but have heard others do, I think its very disrespectful and I would be hurt. I earned the right to be called mom :-)

  • My kids call me mom, my stepkids call me by my name. I married their dad when they were 9 and 13, though.

  • I LOVE MY CHILDREN AND TO BE HONEST I THINK IF A CHILD IS CALLING A BIRTH PARENT BY THEIR GIVEN NAME IS DISRESPECT NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY MEAN . MY STEP SON CALLED ME BY MY GIVEN NAME BEFORE MY HUSBAND AND I GOT MARRIED ONCE I HAD MY SON HE BAGAN CALLING ME MOM HE WAS NOT MADE TO CALL ME MOM AND AT TIMES HE STILL CALLS ME BY MY GIVEN NAME BUT MY BIRTH SON WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CALL ME ANYTHING OTHER THEN MOM AND MY STEP SON IS WORKING ON THAT AS WELL HE IS GETTING BETTER AS THE DAY'S GO BY

  • Mom or Mommy. They would be in major trouble if they call me anything else.

  • My girls call me mom, but If they did try to refer to me by my first name, they sure as hell would never do it again. I find it completely disrespectful and ridiculous to call a parent by their first name.
