How Do You Normally Greet Your Parent?

How do you greet your Parents when you

Or After eating a meal.

Some of the elder friends i had said its better n mo respectful to greet in your native dialect than using english.

Then Es an when i just wake up

So lets have your say on this, how do your own parents wants you to greet them?

My brother said what's up to my dad once and he responded "Jesus is up". Usually we would yab him when he tries to be cool but we just laughed with him

You don't try to speak yoruba to my mom, that means you really don't want to talk to her. Atleast mix yoruba with English.

She loves her language like mad

First time seeing them in the morning.

Both my knees on the floor in my yoruba dialect. Still do it till this day, even to my in-laws, I heard from a source that they were surprised (in a good way) the first time I greeted them like that. Even their daughter doesn't.

My older son is now 3.5yrs old, he greets us the same way by postrating and then we hug him and rub his head like lil monkey afterwards ( i remember my dad used to do that to my siblings and I too)

In the morning, mom-hey mommy, dad- gud mornin' daddy and if they are not mad at u 4 sumthin' u did then they give u a hug wit it

When i'm coming from somewhere its hey mommy, wats gud and hi daddy

my brother usually says gud mornin' in yoruba to my mom and dad when he's trying to be silly cuz he can't say a sentence in yoruba to save his life,lol.

don't have to go down on my kneels but I usually address them in the morning as:

-Morning dad, morning mum

chikena!

I can say watsup to ma mum but not my dad, he'll beat the living daylight outta my body. even as old as i am. My dad ain't no soft meat oh.

even sometimes when me and him are both chatting on YIM or MSN, i can't use slangs or shortforms and God help me if i spell something wrong. . . i can literally feel the tension from my end of the chat.

amsky, you should have him change his "hey" to Good morning or whichever.

relatives wont stand for that "hey" nonsense and they will look at YOU for not teaching him/her or maybe it's just a yoruba thing.
