I'm hoping some of you blog lurkers will reveal yourselves with this post because I'm looking for advice:
How do you feel about a young person (ages 4 and up) calling an adult by their first name? Would you prefer that he/she call you Mr. or Mrs. (last name here)?
When we're in certain situations, I often say to Nathan "say hello to _____" and I've often used the person's first name. I think it's important that he learns to acknowledge/greet people, particularly since he's a Pastor's Kid and will inevitably know 200+ people (or, rather, they'll know him!).
What do you think? Is it appropriate for a child to call an adult by their first name? I think I'd prefer him to say "Mr./Mrs." but in the few instance I've tried to teach my child this, the adult has responded "Oh call me (first name here)." Huh.
