Some people I know have trouble knowing when to capitalise stuff like mum, dad, & uncle. So here's a little cheat I use:

Replace it with Ted. If it makes sense, capitalise it.

"How's Mum?" // "How's Ted?" YES.

"How's your mum?" // "How's your Ted?" NO.

@kvistwig sometimes, yeah! When they're being used as proper nouns & not just regular nouns. The rules are really confusing sometimes, though x.x
