Re: Courtesy Titles: Important or Overblown?

Our children are taught to use a title before a name, sometimes they do use the title with a first name like with their ballet teachers, Miss Andrea, except the head mistress  she is Mrs.  Or like us we have a big long surname that is difficult to pronounce even for some adults we know so we would be Mr. and Mrs. (insert last initial here).

A good portion of our trip was spent in Kentucky, politeness abounds there! It was Ma'am and Sir everywhere. 

Wouldn't the Amish and other Anabaptists refer to folks in the fold as Brother ___ and Sister ____?
