    Default I said to (the) father

    Hello comrades,

    In this thread the question stands like this:

    when we are talking/writing about family members, do we use articles or possessives before? Should we write them in capitals?

    Ex: # 1 I spoke to the father/dad/mum.
    # 2 I spoke to father/dad/mum.
    # 3 I spoke to Father/Dad/Mum.
    # 4 I spoke to your father/dad/mum.
    # 5 I spoke to your Father/Dad/Mum.

    Which of the examples above are OK?

    Thanks a lot.
