I'm curious as to what you call your mother and father, because I know that they're are some regional differences. What do you call your parents and where are you from? I'm from South Wales and I say ''Mam'' and ''Dad''.
Here, I just use "mom" and "dad"; one note though is that I generally use each term in the place of words "mother" and "father" (not just my own mother and father) on a general basis.
Should'nt you not be calling your father 'tad' or 'nhad', clart?
Moeder = mother
Vader = Father
Mama / Ma = Mum
Papa / Pa = Dad
Llwys, ich spreche kein Walisisch.
Ignore my above post, as I for some reason had thought it was in response to my post (which it clearly was not, after rereading the first post in the thread).
When I was really little -- until probably about 7 or so, I called them "Mary" and "Tony," lol.
Then until about 13 or 14 I called them "Mommy" and "Daddy."
Now I call them "Mom" and "Dad."
Interestingly, my sister (who's 12 now) calls our mom, "Mama."
In spain is Madre and Padre. Kids say papa and mama. An adult saying papa and mama would sound very childish
''Should'nt you not be calling your father 'tad' or 'nhad', clart?''
Who is clart?
I don't have any parents!
I call my parents ''Mother'' and ''Father''. Does anyone else here do the same?
Most kids in the US stop calling their parents "mommy" and "daddy" as they get older, although women sometimes go on calling their fathers "daddy" forever. But in the South, it is (or was, when I lived there) fairly common for men to continue to call their fathers "daddy." "Mama (or Momma) and daddy" was very common.

The same here with ''mammy'' and ''daddy''.
