She's 12 and she's calling me daddy, what do I do?Watch this thread
Sounds like a daddy issue.
If it's something that's bothering you, maybe talk to her about it and see how she feels about calling you dad instead - it may just be force of habit. It's a name, it may just stick! And if it isn't hurting you then it's certainly nothing to worry about. I have eighteen year old friends still calling their parents mummy and daddy, it's just a habit and what they've grown up with!
But then, I'm 20 and I called my daddy my daddy (or his first name ). I'm banned from calling him Dad.
My 12 year old daughter is turning 13 soon and she's still calling me daddy. I just want advice from anyone here who is a parent and has children of this age calling them this. It doesn't bother me too much but I am curious as to what age they stop doing that and say mum or dad for example. Thanks!
lmao- I'm 18 turning 19 and I still call my parents mommy and daddy ( not when talking to my friends/others about them Lol) . I don't think it's something I'll grow out of tbh. I would like to think it will happen naturally
