I have a friend who does not want to be called mom. She is butch.  But she is basically raising the kid with her GF.  Any suggestions?

Hey there... I understand your question. I think many people feel confused about what to call people when they are in certain roles in their lives. I guess I think their are many families with step-parents- and foster- parents...adopted parents and I have noticed that many of these kids call the person who is co-parenting by their name and not by the role they play in the family. It's interesting and I guess I think it's reasonable to leave it up to the family to decide. I am sure their are other families who call their two mom's mommy etc. I don't think there is a set standard of what is appropriate so i would just support your friends in what they feel comfortable with even though you might make a different choice if you were in their shoes.
