WOULD YOU RATHER YOUR KIDS CALL STRANGERS MR/MISTER MRS/MA’AM THAN AUNTY OR UNCLE???
I grew up in the age where everybody is called uncle and aunty wether related to us or not.
I really have FOUND this very offensive over the years and even actually embraced it to as i call TOTAL strangers Names like MAMA,AUNTY,UNCLE ETC..
I MEAN I EVEN CALLED MY SCHOOL TEACHERS,BIBLE SCHOOL TEACHERS (Uncle and aunty)??
Having a child now,i don’t think i wld ever allow him address anyone with uncle nor aunty..
He will be extremely polite but for no reason wld he be calling anyone outside my family and his fathers family UNCLE NOR AUNTY!!!
MOMS WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS?
I’M JUST BEEN A #MOMSTER OR I HAVE MOMS FEELING SAME WAY???
