I never do that. I never have done that. It is talking down to a child, and that is disrespectful. Adults talk to children like rich women talk to their pets, and then wonder why the child grows up with no self esteem. You struck a very good point here, and asked a very good question.
Calm down, sweetie.
Degrading this degrading that! Show them what you're not, then it will mean nothing!
For that purpose. To show a sense of age difference.
its not degrading. Its a term of respect and endearment. Some use this sane words for adults as well

Go to most any mom and pop diner in the country - they call everybody that. Don't worry about it, it is no big deal.
It`s an endearment, we don`t mean it to be derogatory don`t be so sensitive sweety!
