‘Don’t call me Mum’ is campaigning for professionals to see parents as partners, asking practitioners to use parents names rather than calling parents Mum or Dad. In doing so they are making a simple step toward acknowledging the valuable participation parents make in every child’s care and education.

The ‘Don’t call me Mum’ Awareness Day and ‘Don’t call me Dad’ Awareness Day will be held on the 28 November 2016. It will be a day to raise awareness to the plight of parents all around the country. Parents to partner with the professionals, parents have a label beyond Mum or Dad. Parents have a role, skills, invaluable insight, and a name.
