Smells like teen spirit.

A dad is pissed at his sixteen-year-old son who is doing that teenage thing where he disrespect his dad in petty ways. Being an annoying little scamp is widely accepted as a rite of passage during puberty, but this dad will not stand for it, and refuses to be addressed by anything but "Dad."

He wrote on "Am I The A**hole?":

So, my (38m) son (16m) started addressing me by my first name instead of 'dad' - I'm not okay with it. I had asked him to not call me by my first name and he said he can call me however he wants, and I can't force him to call me dad.

My wife (his mom) told me not to get too hung up on this, since it really isn't an issue, I told her that it is an issue, for me - just not an issue for her since son still calls her mom.
