I agree and would never call my parents by their names unless I was refering to them.

Out of respect, I always call them dad and mom. To be honest, I don't know many people that do call their parents by their first names.

No I never do that I agree that it is rude and disrespectful. I have seen people do it and I don't agree with it.

I grew up in an extended family household.  When I was young, my entire family lived together in one really large house (exactly like the Ewing family did on Dallas).  I was the only child and everyone else in the household were aunts and uncles, my mother and my maternal grandparents.  Eleven years separated me from my mothers youngest sibling.  I heard my aunts and uncles, and my mother, call my grandparents "mom" and "dad" so I did the same.  Until the day they passed, I always called my grandparents "mom" and "dad" and rarely ever "grandma" and "grandpa".  I still do when I talk about them.  Everyone else referred to my mother by her first name so I did the same.  I've always called my mother by her first name since I could speak.  Occasionally I will call her "mom" or "mother" if I am referring to her to someone.  It's been like this for 41 years.  Not one time have I ever felt like I was disrespecting my mother nor has she ever thought I was disrespecting her because I call her by her first name.  I've never had any friends, co-workers, teachers or family friends think my calling her by her first name odd, either.  No one has ever chastised me for it or told me I was being "disrespectful" to her for it.

I have an incredible and unwavering amount of respect for my mother and I don't feel that how I address her diminishes that in any way.  I knew people in school who called their parents "mom" and "dad" and didn't have an ounce of respect for them.  There is more to respect than the use of a certain title.

I can't see me calling my parents by their given names. I'm in my 40's and it is still `Daddy' not dad or father that I call my dad. Mom is mom or mother. The only ones I would use their names on was my in-laws.

No I would never call my parents by their first names.  I agree it is disrespectful and children should show their parents respect.  Being an adult sibling or not it does not matter this is still your mother or father and respect should be shown no matter the sibling's age.   :o

I don't.  I think that''s disrespectful.  My brother does it sometimes and I just want to punch him in the throat when he does.  Some people don't mind and if that's fine with them great.  We didn't grow up like that so I don't know why he thinks it's ok just because we're adults.  You should still have respect. 
   nno   no no  that is so inpersonal  that i want to puke
