I was reading the step-mom's conversations and they asked about their step child calling them mom. Mostly all that commented on it and thought it was completely ok because their step-child has two moms whether the bio mom likes it or not.
I personally think it is unacceptable for my child to call another woman mom or anything along those lines. It is only ok in situation where the mom is not involved. That being said I would never attempt to have my child call my future husband (whomever he may be) dad.
So that being said what should a step-mom be called. I think they should be called by their first name no matter the child's age. My ex feels that it is disrespectful for a child to call an adult by their first name and his wife should be called by some other name.
What do ya'll think?
