Do you make your kids say "yes sir/ma'am" "no sir/ma'am"? If so do they say it to you or only to other adults? If it's not mandatory why not? If it is mandatory why?

They don't get in trouble for not saying it or anything, but it is a habit of theirs, yes. They call just about all adults sir or ma'am.

No, not really. None of the adults like to be called sir or ma'am. She does and will in the appropriate situations.

 That's how my children are. They don't get in trouble for saying it, it's just something that has become routine.

No, only because I live in MN and it's considered rude here. I grew up in GA and it took me years to train myself to stop saying it. Kinda sad that it's offensive to people here to show respect

That's insane that people feel offended by politeness
