How do you refer to parents in writing?

When writing in the first person, I tend to refer to the MC’s parents as ‘mother’, ‘father’, ‘mum’ or ‘dad’. When writing in the third person I would say her mother, Mrs. So-and-so, etc. I generally never use the parents’ first names, unless the character in question is used to calling them by their first names.

How do you refer to parents in third person point of view?

The most common way to do it is say “her mother,” but that’s a little formal and distant, and the average third-person limited story is on the distant side. In distant books, I’ve also seen it start with “her mother” to introduce the mother’s name, and then use the mother’s name sometimes as well.

How do you cite in a paper MLA?

In-text citations include the last name of the author followed by a page number enclosed in parentheses. “Here’s a direct quote” (Smith 8). If the author’s name is not given, then use the first word or words of the title. Follow the same formatting that was used in the Works Cited list, such as quotation marks.
