Would You Let Your Child Call You By Your First Name? Poll
Some call it disrespectful. Others call it a sign of endearment, or a special bond. Would you let your child call you by your first name?
I was reading this article recently on Cafemom.com. They were discussing this very topic. Some think it's cute. Others think it's a slap in the face to you as a parent. It doesn't bother some parents at all. They feel that it shows a special connection.
To some, according to the article, it's almost as if you've been demoted. To paraphrase, "There are 1 million Bills or Harrys or Barbaras or Sues, but only one mom and dad." I'm just wondering how you fall on this one. Please take the poll below.
Thanks. I will post the results in a follow-up article. (I have a REAL strong opinion on this one. I better bite my tongue! )
