    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.
    True, that's me and my friends for sure.
    Nothing wrong with not working for money during your youth and having caring parents.

    I call them father and mother most of the time. Though my accent is a bit "Estuary" so it sounds like I'm doing it for a laugh, I imagine it'd sound a bit off if I was posh. I never call them mother or father in properly serious conversation.
