My significant other ( I call him my husband) is known as Daddy to my 2yr old. My child's biological father, who has 25% visiting time, calls himself papa and is mad that our child is calling my significant other Daddy. Me and my SO have another child together and he will be called daddy to all of our children. So what is the research and law on titles for another person who is in a definite parenting role?Just to clarify, it's my child that chose to use the parental term Daddy, not us. We told my child that she could use his name too. All childhood educators that I have contacted, all say the same thing, 'let the child chose what they are comfortable with. It's what makes them happy'. And it is not in our contract for the PC to rule on. It's a stupid battle by my ex that all of the sudden came up literally over a year later. It makes us sad, since he keeps forcing our child to not say it at all, and she gets mad and cries about it. Thanks for all of the feedback.
