    I did not call my parents mummy and daddy even when I was a child; it was rare for me to call them that. I have always called them mother/mum and father/dad.

    The three people I know who call their parents "mummy"/"daddy" are spoilt rich kids who have never had a job during sixth form/summer and have their uni fees/accommodation paid for.

    I don't think I ever called my dad or mum that, but my friend whose 17 still calls them daddy and mummy and it's perfectly fine. It's just another name.

    I call my mum by her government name, and I call my dad by his government name as well!

    My sisters call my dad Papa though. And they call my mum Mere.

    I'm 22 and call them Mummy and Daddy. :dontknow: It's just a name. I don't call them that in third person to anyone else though, unless I'm purposely putting on a posh voice.:lol:

    I'm a fully fledged adult and I still call my dad daddy sometimes lol.. it's just automatic. I know a couple other girls who do and a boy who does it as a jokey kind of thing. Do you think there's an age limit?
    Nahh no age limit. My Daddy is my Daddy.

    I wouldn't call a parent mummy/daddy beyond junior school. Find it less weird when women call me daddy, rather than their actual fathers :mmm:

    I'm a 17 year old boy with Nigerian parents and it just felt weird to call them 'Mum' and 'Dad'. Whenever I tried, it felt disrespectful so I gave up trying. But when I'm with anyone else I will call them 'Mum' and 'Dad'.
