"Son, do not call me DUDE again....
do not call me 'dudette' or even 'Dr. Dudette'. I am Mom to you."

:grr: When did it become cool to call your parents "Dude?"

2. Depending upon the child's age, I would take steps that guarantee
that never happens again.

5. He's eleven. His best friend says it to me, too.
He picked it up from his best friend. I've corrected both of them. Do you think a good two-day grounding is in order? :evilgrin:

40. No
It's a compliment. It means they think you are cool, for an adult.

It's not a battle I choose to fight. He still calles me mommy sometimes. And it's a real compliment when he tell me I'm "tight".

they called me a Republican when they were mad at me for something though. Think I could deal with the 'dude' one better.

16. It's not a gender thing.
We get along great, but I don't ever want him to think I'm his peer.

Sometimes, when I am scolding him, he says, "I wish we could stop arguing!" I tell him quickly, "Husbands and wives argue; brothers and sisters argue; friends argue. I'm your mother. I'm correcting you and you're backtalking."

LOL.

27. Careful

You may be the 'child' one day and he'll be the 'parent'`.

What goes around comes around in old age sometimes.

29. I have perfected "The Glare".
I'm friendly with my kids and a lot more lenient than my wife but when I give them "The Glare" they know to stop. I don't have to yell at them or anything, the hard stare and a few choice words between clenched teeth stops all nonsense. I think it may be due to an unfortunate incident where they saw me fight. They don't want any of that coming down on them. Heh.

17. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to what I call my parents.
Mom and Dad.

If I called my dad dude, he'd probably laugh. My mom would think I'd lost my mind.

19. If, when I was a kid, I would have referred to my mom as dude...
my father would have lost his mind.

Yes, mine are Mom and Dad, too. Sometimes I joke and call my dad by his first name, but he knows I am joking.

21. Doesn't bother my mom...
Edited on Sat Jun-11-05 07:36 PM by Ariana Celeste
Lol. She actually gets a kick out of it, mainly because I am so much like her when she was my age. Like mother like daughter, I guess! Lol. She was born in 62 so she was a 70's teen- anti disco hippy! Sometimes I don't even realize I'm calling her "dude" or "man" until she giggles about it. Habit! :).




On edit: When I'm not calling her "dude" or "man", I'm calling her "Mommy" or "Mumma". :7

23. I accidentally called my dad "dude" a few times in the last few years
He didn't even blink, but I'm not making a habit of it. My s.o. calls him "dadoo", and my dad loves it. I call my sister "dude" all the time, and she calls me "dude" back. My mom stays out of it mostly. :P

Of course, we're all grown up now. If I'd called my dad "dude" in my teenage years, chances are I wouldn't be here to talk about it. :D

25. My 18-year-old has occasionally called me Dude.
If she's not calling me Dude, she's calling me Mother. Not Mom, but Mother.

35. The little guy would never THINK of calling me or Mrs R.
that, but he did once ask one of the neighbors "hey, did you hear about that Pope dude dying?"

Can't fight progress, can we?

39. Mrs R. and I firmly believe that the decline of
Western civilization has been brought about largely by people allowing their children to address non-family adults by their first names.

We get a fair amount of (good-natured) ribbing from our neighbors about this, because we fall into the habit of calling some of them Mr or Mrs so-and-so because that's the way we refer to them when we're talking to our kids--and these are people who are younger than us.
