I was curious as usual and i have to ask. I don't know why im asjing when majority of you are sanctimommies lol and probably feel the same way.

I know a couple of moms who let their kids call them by their real name. My mom feels thats completely disrespectful and so do I. Unless there is an emergency, there is no reason for my DD to call me by my first.

Does your child call you by your first name instead of calling you mom, ,ma or mommy?

Also a note, just because i think its disrespectful doesn't mean i dont respect anyones ways of parenting. Too each its own.

Mummy or mama. They address other people by their first name and patronymic.

I have a question for you, what do your children call other adults? Say, your best friend, or the next door neighbor, or their aunt or uncle?

I have a reason for asking before I respond.

Honestly, as long as my child is addressing me with respect s/he could call me by my first name, or mom or mommy. It's the intent behind it.

They have never called me by my first name, but each one has done it with DH. His name is Bob and he just ignored it until they went back to calling him Abba. (Dad/Daddy in Hebrew.) I am Imma (Hebrew as well.)

What is patronymic?

Quoting Josie_P:

Mummy or mama. They address other people by their first name and patronymic.

My children address us by mom and dad and their corresponding variants.  They address other adults as Mr./Mrs. _______ with only a couple exceptions.

My oldest knows mine and my husbands names but no way he's gonna call me by it.
As far as he and his brother are concerned I am MOMMY.
