I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it but equally I’m not sure I know any adults who do

She is 20. It’s her decision to make. It sounds odd to me but I would be more worried about at 20 year old who couldn’t make this decision herself.

I just doesnt seem right to be that an adult should call them mummy and daddy!

It's not like it's hurting anyone

Does it matter?!

I know people who call their parents by their actual names.

My kids call me mummy when they're being all nice. But its mum when I'm being summonsed for something unpleasant.

If the people who the name applies to are ok with it it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

Weird thing to care about to be honest

we are having a massive family debate.
My eldest sisters (20) calls my parents mummy and daddy. Personally I don't see this as right I feel that once you are in high school you should refer to parents as only mum/dad.

However in the family every one else argues that its perfectly normal for my sister to say mummy and daddy whats your thoughts?
