was at the mall with my kids and there was a family in the store with us. the kid called his father sir every single time and called his mother "ma'am". the family was white and the parents were older so that could be why. i think that calling parents out of the name "mom/dad" is so useless . does anyone even do this anymore ?

Nope. In Australia it's not done at all though. We always call our parents Mum and Dad and that's what we are called.

i only think its dated to call parents that, not anyone else. also, why do ur kids call the pastor sir? never heard of that. everybody call my pastor by his title , which is reverend
