My Dad is passed away but up until the time he passed away I always called him Dad. To me that is who he is. My Mom is 87 years old and I am 58 and I still call her Mom. She is and always will be my Mom. Out of respect for her that is what I will call her always.

I usually say Mom and Dad, but sometimes when they say something ridiculous I will say Carol!, as if I am shocked at what she just said. It is kind of a funny thing that we do, because she always will pretend to hit my shoulder or something, as if I shouldn't call her by her first name.

I call my Mom - Mom and I call my Dad - Daddy. I'm 39 years old and will always call my Dad - Daddy. When I was little I called my Mom - Momma but outgrew that as I became a teen. I don't care who hears me and where I am. He will always be my Daddy.

Hi petiksmode, I just call them Dad and Mum. I belong to a conservative/traditional society and we don't address parents by their names. Maybe you can say it is a sign of respect. Given my own choice in this matter, I also would not want to call them by name. I would still call them Dad and Mum. Cheers!
