Would this bother you for you child to call you by your name instead of mommy/daddy? do you think it's something that should be punished (assuming the kid "knows better" and is doing it to be a smartass) or at least corrected?

Wouldn't bother me at all.

Nah not punished. It really depends on the age though. Young kids will hear ur parents calling each other by thier names and then copy it. I'd just correct them and move on.

:!:
DD calls DH by his name, or his middle name, sometimes and he'll just correct her. I think it's kind of a dumb thing to punish a child for.



Although if they're older and doing it how like for example Farrah does to her dad with an attitude behind it, yeah that would annoy me lol. My sister calls my dad by his name but he's not her biological father. She calls my our mom by her name when she's joking though.

Keep correcting them? Lol. It a common phase. Annoying maybe, but it's not like they are doing it maliciously. If they are young I mean.

If they did it with attitude or to be a smart ass then yes they would be corrected. But sometimes my daughter calls hubs and I by my name, but we are pretty laid back here so we don't really mind much.. She still calls us mum and dad more often than not.

How old are they? If they're really young I don't think there is a whole lot you can do besides correcting them. Punishing them isn't going to help imo though. I mean they're probably hearing other people say whoever's name it is and repeating it.

This is funny. DD always calls SO by his name. He tries to get her to call me by name, but she won't. I think it is because I use his name a lot when I am talking to him or asking him for something. He like never says my name. We always correct her though. I really don't think it should be something to punish over.

My 4 year old does it to be a pain in the ass. I was teaching him our names and phone numbers.. Now he calls me Meghan to get my attention, he calls me SO Andrew bona (middle name) drives us nuts. I don't punish him but I tell him to only use our names if its an emergency and he's talking to police, firemen, teachers, gets lost etc.

Depends on their age, tbh.



In my culture that shit doesn't fly after like...4yo. All youth has to address all adults with respect. Mom, Dad, and they call every one else uncle or auntie regardless of relation. Even now I call older/elderly men or women by a title of respect, like "sheikh" "hajji" or uncle/aunt..or Mother/Father Of [eldest child's name].

see i plan to drill ma'am and sir into DD's head as soon as she's old enough to get it. how i was raised. i guess people are looking at it as disrespectful or something...

Idk, why it would bother someone or why anyone would want to punish their kids for that. That's silly. If it bothers them, just keep correcting them.



DD's been calling DH and I our names. However, that's because we're barely teaching her our names. :oops:
