what do you call your parents?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you refer your parents as mom and dad or by their first names now that you are an adult?


I am asking because my boss (64 years old) refers to his late father by his name rather than referring him as "dad". I just find it odd because everyone knows who his dad is (his dad started the company, and the company is his dad's name). 


I call my mom, mom. I call my dad, dad. How about you?

By their names.
They say it's disrespectful, but,
My dad was never around.
My mom was and still is manipulating,
2- faced, verbally and emotionally abusive , an alcholic and a chronic liar,
I raises my brothers and dont feel that I have any reason to respect
My parents.

Mom sometimes Laura when she isn't focusing. My bio dad is sperm donor and my amazing step dad is daddy.

Mumsy and Dads. Lol I have called them that since I first learned English. It kind of stuck! My brothers call them that in private too.
