Re: Courtesy Titles: Important or Overblown?

Having children call their teacher's Miss,Mrs.,or Mr. is a matter of respect.  Children should also refer to their friends parents as Mr. and Mrs.  Children should also call an Aunt or Uncle as such.  Again children need to respect their elders,and this is one way of doing that.  People working nursing homes should refer to the residents with a courtesy title.
