I am a bit confused with a correct usage of Mom and Dad and articles. My daughter wrote a short essay starting from:
"Hello my name is ... and I am going to tell you about me. I have a Mum and Dad..."
At first she used "Mum" as she always does in school. I found that the word mum is more about sound not a person and it should be Mom instead. Secondly she use "a" to "Mum and Dad". Shouldn't be "a Mum and a Dad" or without an article at all?
