For many children their first word was Mom but that might soon be changing. Growing up I would have been smacked if I called my mom by her real name(Sharron) which to this day I still do. Now that I'm a dad I view the names Mom and Dad as a badge of honor and I'm proud to hear my daughter say it. But there's a new trend where moms are not wanting their kids to call them mom.

According to DailyMail some moms are wanting their kids to call them by their real name because mom makes them feel old. Other reasons for them wanting to be called by their real name is that they want to be viewed as friends by their kids.

Honestly to each their own I have no opinion on how others want to raise their children BUT with that being said my daughter will call me dad!
