know whether tu or usted is required. Could it not be either, depending on the formality, which is not stated?
The examples given for mamá and madre are in a special note where we explain the use of formal usted and the word madre (instead ofmamá) in some rural areas, but as we say in the explanation box, this doesn't reflect the general use. As a general rule, you would use the tú form when speaking to your mum and dad.
I hope this helps.
