Some parents let their kids call them by their first names. Do you agree or disagree with this?

    Amen! I also choose to not have children but still could never imagine my child calling me by my first name. There would be a swift and firm correction that would last a lifetime!

    My grandfather + great grandpa were Filipino. My dad was a loving, no nonsense type that taught us to be polite + respectful. To each his own I guess but I am still shocked by this disrespect whenever I see it .

    I agree. My dad was always dad or daddy because I respected him and his role in my life. Never did it cross my mind to address him by his 1st name because it is disrespectful.

    Anywhere - parents can choose to be known by their first names if they like. I'm in New Zealand, it's not common but it is done. Each to their own.

    I agree in theory but at times the behavior isn't corrected + is forced upon others. If a child is not taught to address people properly, they will have needless difficulties + some of these same kids have many problems following rules + laws.
