Hi so what do your sons or daughters call you. I have three sons and one daughter. They are all in there twenties and one is thirty. My oldest son calls me Sam, my second Son calls Garry Lad, my Daughter calls Garry, or Pops, and my youngest son calls Dad.
when my eldest daughter was about four she suddenly started calling us by our Christian names. It didn't worry us in any way, so we said nothing. It went on for about a year, and then without any warning she reverted to Mum and Dad - it happened overnight.
She's thirty now, and hasn't any recollection of it at all.
More importantly what do they call you when your not around, I got three 'new' children with my second marriage all called me dad fron day one, two children out of three from my first marriage call me dad, the third insists on 'old f**t'.
