So, my questions are:
1) How do you think children should address adults?
2) How did you address adults when you were a child?
3) Is it ever okay for a child to address an adult by first name, if so when?
4) How should children address close family friends/neighbors.
5) How do you prefer to be addressed (by children)
6) Why is American culture changing in regard to these standards?
1) With a Mr, Miss, Ms, in front of their first name, or a Mr, Ms, or Mrs in front of their last name.
2) By their first name (except for teachers)
3) Only if they are a step-parent, or insist on being called by their first name.
4) See #1.
5) "Mrs. Moore". ..or "Ms. Erin" if the child is very young.
6) Because American culture is moving away from biblical principles, and it's jacked up.
Please post a comment with your answers, so my dear SIL can sleep again at night. Also, once you finish posting, check out this article that Wendy sent me. ...oh, and don't cheat, post your thoughts, THEN read the article. (Remember, God is watching - and if you don't believe in God, then Santa Clause is watching).
(Oh, and the picture has nothing to do with the blog, but posting two picture-less blogs in a row just didn't sit well).
