    I would find my mother calling me princess incredibly weird, and I don’t think I’ve called her mommy since I was six. I’m also 20.

    bmo88:  My mom will ocassionally call me princess as a joke when I’m being a little bit bratty. But its a sarcastic, silly, non serious way and its not at all often

    My mom only really calls me honey or names along those lines.. And I honestly never got out of the habit calling my parents mommy and daddy, I never find it weird and neither does anyone else who hears me call them that.

    I don’t think it’s wierd. And I have a barely existent relationship with my parents – I call my mother “Mother”and don’t have any form of address for my father really…

    Near me (or at least in my family) if your older than 8, being called a princess is an insult not a term of endearment. With that said, as a teen I did refer to myself as a princess… I was an odd ball.  Even had my 16th birthday cake say “Happy Birthdat Princess ____” crazy when I think of it now.

    My older brother, calls his daughter Princes her first name, she’s my age and a wife and mother.  It’s their thing.  I call my dad … My Daddy once in a while, alot more when I was a teen (it irked the crap out of my mom when I was a teenager) that’s my dad and mine thing and he calls me honey.  Meh to each their own

    My mom and FI often call me Princess lol. But they do it in a mocking kind of way. “Okay fiiine, we’ll go get ice cream, Princess”

    Don’t find it immature I think it’s sweet. My mom doesn’t call me princess but she still calls me by my nickname I unintentionally gave myself as a toddler. I would never tell me not to call me by it. And dh just calls me his queen hehe don’t mind that either.

    Personally I find calling parents mommy/daddy after the age of 6 a little strange.  And princess I could maybe see up to age of 10

    I would hate it if someone called me princess and I do find it a little strange. Then again, my parents still use their childhood nickname “big girl”  for me (long story lol) in private.

    bmo88:  Sometimes I think people called their daughters “princess” more like in an affectionate way. Just like how daddy’s called their daughters “Daddy’s little princess”.

    It really depends on the family dynamic and if the girl is a brat or not. The term “Princess” can go either way in my opinion.

    I can’t ever remember calling my mom “mommy,” and she only had a couple nicknames for me as a kid. In public, she’ll call me by my name, but sometimes on the phone or when visiting she’ll call me by a nickname. I’m 21.

    So for me, it’s weird that a 20 year old would have that kind of relationship with their mother. But other people are probably closer than my mom and I are, so it’s whatever. Different strokes for different folks.

    bmo88:  I call my mother mom and for a long time i was called princess by my friends. To be fair it was a nickname that stuck after I went off at a guy for trying to call me that. So it stuck as an annoy me nickname. So I guess for us it was an inside joke to a certain degree especially since i was always the biggest tomboy of my friends. My parents call me by my name or some abbreviation. It wouldn’t bug me though if one of my friends’ parents called them that. There might be a story behind it.
