Do yall think that it is rude or disrespectful for a child to respond to you by saying "what"? 

My 9 year old stepdaughter has done this a few times. She is a really sweet, good kid and she doesn't say it with an attitude or anything but it just rubs me the wrong way. I correct her and tell her to say "Yes?" . My husband doesn't think it is a big deal because he used to say it to his parents and my stepdaughter says it to her mom. Well I grew up in a strict old school family and if an adult called you or said something you responded with "Ma'am?" or "Sir?" Now I don't want my kids saying ma'am or sir to us but "what?" is just not acceptable. I would have been slapped in the mouth for saying what to the adults in my family.LOL Shoot I couldn't even say " Huh?"Ouch

disrespectful.  I wasn't raised that way.  Either say yes or huh.but never what!  I raised my kids the same and two are grown and when they say what, the politely correct themselves and say I mean huh.  Save that what stuff for your friends

I agree we couldn't say what either.
We were taught to use ma'm and sir.

My SO's parents taught them not to say Ma'm or Sir to white people

I think it's disrespectful. My four year old niece says it and I want to correct her, but I don't want to do it in front of parents thought

yeah, no that's disrespectful in general. 

you don't answer "huh" or "what" to people, let alone your elders. 

"ma'am" and "sir" are your friends. you may also go to "pardon (me)" or "excuse me".

i wish i woulda said "what".
