If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here
I also gave my sons' friends the option of Mrs. or my first name. Some were uncomfortable with using the first name. I was one of the moms pledged to be a 'safe house', where any child could ring the bell or knock, if they were in any kind of danger. I'm kind of proud kids felt safe and happy at our home.

Mr. so-and-so is very 1950's Leave it to Beaver, and nobody deserves respect simply for being older.
I was thinking about this, after my last comment. Whatever my sons' friends and their parents addressed me by, had more to do with attitude and respect, than which name we addressed eachother. (They could have call me Mrs., like Eddie Haskel called Mrs.Cleaver.) Or by my first name, with real respect. We all knew the difference. Something to be very grateful for.
