Hello. I have a (simple) question. My MC is a child. Consequently I write through his POV. When it comes to parents I don't know how to write them. Do I write with parental names "his mother did that, his father did that other things..." or can I write their names "Eileen did that, while Thomas did that other thing...." At the beginning I did write mother and father of course, but now that I have introduced names, I'm a bit confused what can I use. I have a feeling it's "mother and father", because it's a child's POV, but I want to be sure. Also if the answer is "use the parental names", can someone explain briefly when it is "the mother" and when "mother". I know the difference between "a" and "the", but I'm not completely sure when can I omit the articles. Thank you for your help.
