Did you ever wonder why kids call us mum and dad?

According to the experts, It’s because we all have rules that most of us follow. These are rules related to our cultures, our societies and even our families. We have rules for how to greet people (shake hands, hug), how to use forks or chopsticks, what to call our teacher (“Mrs. Bell”) and even where to sit at the dinner table.

We don’t think of these things as “rules”; they’re just there.

One of these kinds of rules in most families around the world is that parents are the heads of the household and children are supposed to listen to them. By calling parents “Mum” or “Dad,” it helps everyone stick to their roles. Some parents feel that if you call them by their first name, you don’t think they are the boss anymore. For many families in certain cultures, referencing one’s parent by their first name is disrespectful.

It is also a great way to teach respect by encouraging children to refer to people by their family title. Especially for Grandma, and Grandpa, and Aunts and Uncles. We all deserve to be given that little bit of respect.

What does your child call you?
