i call my mother "mamang" and my father "papang". it was odd because most of the people here in our city just call their mother and father as papa and mama..some are daddy and mommy. but the most common names called to mother and father is "tatay" and " nanay". how about you? from what country are You? and how do you call your parents?

Hi xannebull I live in the states. The state of KY. Both of my parents are deceased. When they was alive or even now when I talk about them they are referred to as mom and dad. I think that is what is mostly the common name for the parents here the states. Thanks for sharing this information about your country. I really like hearing about it. Have a great day and keep smiling.

I am from India and i used to address my father as "dada" and my mother as "amma". My dad used to address my grandfather as "anna" and my grandmother as "aiee". In India there are many languages and so you will find people addressing their parents in different ways. My niece now addresses her dad, ie my brother as "papa" and her mother as "mama".I am unmarried so in my case this does not arise at all.
