Why do you call your parents mom/mum and dad?

Because if you call 'em by their first names you get smacked upside the head!

Not always so. My husband calls his parents by their first names and always has. They also raised her brothers and sisters and everyone called them by their first names so my husband and his siblings did as well. Odd if you ask me. I call them Mom and Dad.

I'm 60 and my parents have passed. However if I ever calked my parents anything else, especially by their names they would have drop kicked me across the street!

I think it's actually a symbol of love, to show that we don't have to be formal around them and that they will always be there for you.
