Do your children address adults by their first names or do you ask that they be more formal?

It really depends on the adult and how comfortable my kids are around them. For neighborhood moms and such, they are usually called by their first names eventually. I don't have a problem with kids calling me by my first name, using Mrs. M.. makes me feel old!

I didn't used to think this was a big deal until I saw how it affected my kids' behavior.
