Nè and name calling
Howzit Frusty quiet?

Ok Nè calls me by my name as everbody calls me by my name and that is all she hears.

How can she call me mommy and how can I make her understand she must call me mommy ?

I do the normal "must mommy help you" thing but that's it.

Even G's kids call me by my name which is fine. Even Nè's caregiver calls me by my name.

Its not so much that it bothers me but it bothers others in the family thinking Nè's unrespectful and cheeky.....

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me --- and as for others, (a) it's not really their business, and (b) you should only need to explain it to them once.
