Why do men call their boys son? Not all of course but a lot. I always wondered that and know its been that way forever. I never hear a man call his daugther Daughter so why can his son Son? lol

  • Just like when lovers call each other baby or honey....just a nickname or their "slang"

  • Im saying Son instead of the actual name...Even ppl that are not the father tend to call boys Son. I dont get it. Why not use their name?

  • My DH called her Daughter's Daughter at times. It just does not roll off the tongue.
