WOULD YOU RATHER YOUR KIDS CALL STRANGERS MR/MISTER MRS/MA’AM THAN AUNTY OR UNCLE???
I grew up in the age where everybody is called uncle and aunty wether related to us or not.
I really have FOUND this very offensive over the years and even actually embraced it to as i call TOTAL strangers Names like MAMA,AUNTY,UNCLE ETC..
