Quoting Severus Snape:" My cousins daughter called her "baby" for forever because her husband called her that most of the time Lol. Drove her nuts until they broke the habit."
Lol DD called me Babe once and it was the most awkward thing. Hasn't done it since though.

[snip!] ... something that should be punished (assuming the kid "knows better" and is doing it to be a smartass) or at least corrected?"</blockquote>
my daughter knows she's not suppose to call me by my name and she does it anyway so wat i do is i ignore her until she calls me mom or mami
If they're old enough to know better, not a punishment per-say, but I wouldn't like them calling me anything other than mom/mommy and they would start getting ignored if they didn't call me that. I think that would correct them quickly enough, lol. They're bound to want my attention sooner or later and they won't get it by calling me Ashley, haha.
Yeah it bothers me idk why. I don't punish my kids though I just correct them. My kids use to do it but they don't anymore.
A couple days ago we were at our local community garden and this little girl had asked my oldest what his mom's name was and he said my name, made me chuckle and glad at the same time that he does know my name in case he is lost or something.

you guys are making me worry about that factor... my daughter wouldn't be able to pronounce my name till like 5 or 6...:?
DS calls DH 'chris' because he hears big brother and sister call him that. He's their stepdad. We just correct and refer to chris as daddy when talking about DH. He knows who daddy is. Always has. Just picks up and follows older siblings lead! No need to punish. He knows who daddy is and as he gets older will form the better habit.
also, around what age did your child start doing it?
<blockquote><b>Quoting THE Draco Malfoy:</b>" also, around what age did your child start doing it?"</blockquote>
Around 2? My son has yet to call us by name.
DS1 who is 3, will call SO by his name (Jamie) sometimes just jokingly, but its because he's always hearing me call his name.
When Jame asked him if he knew my name, he said "yep. her names hun" lol. I thought it was so cute, because SO always calls me hun when he's talking to me, so he thinks that's my name.
My 5yr old knows my name, she calls me "Jamie-Lee C" I don't see a problem with it, really, it's what her teacher has taught her (parent roll call) and I would NEVER punish her for it, ever, that's just stupid, period. what would happen if your child was like, lost or something...
She still calls me mommy, witch...mommy annoys me, we say MUM/MUMMY here, no idea why she says "mommy" but..yeah haha.
No. it's not that big of a deal. He did it with SO a lot, eventually he went back to saying daddy. We didn't correct him or anything, no ignoring.
So no one else punches their kid in the face for calling by first name? Weird.
