My only experience with this is my boys having a stepmom. It was more my hurt feelings when they called her Mom than anything. A long story short. He was cheating and was engaged to her after we were divorced for two months (we were married 7 years). They were married a year later and the ex told them they had to call her Mom.

I am not as sensitive about it these days. My oldest does not even go to his Dad's anymore because he does not like her. The youngest still goes and if he wants to call her Mom so be it. I am secure enough of my role in their lives not to care.

The boys call my dh by his given name sometimes and sometimes they call him Dad. Just depending on their mood. That is their decision also.
