Do you prefer that your kids call adults by their first name or more formally with "Mr." or "Mrs."?

Usually if my children know the adult well they will call them Miss, Mrs. or Mr. First Name. If they don't know them well we use Mr., Miss, Mrs. Last Name.

My son and I were just discussing this because he had a playdate yesterday. The boy's mother is a teacher at his school so he naturally called her Mrs D but he asked what the dads name was and I wasn't sure if he should call him mr d or Henry. We went with Mr D. It is hard to know because some people (like me) don't want to be called mrs D, but some get offended by a lack or respect when addressed by their first name.
