    Why do the kids call their mother by her first name sometimes but also call her Mom?

    Is this common in America?

    Example is where Gertie comes out of her room and Her mam asks her what she is doing and she says I am going to play in Eliots room. Her mom says dont let them torture you and she says I wont Mary. Sure it happens in some other scenes too.

    Cheers
    Darren

    Um i dunno. One of the guys i share my student house with always calls his parents by first name, which to me is just really odd. But then he is a bit funny also. I guess it varies from family to family.
