This is a very individual preference. I prefer to be called by my first name. I like to be thought of as a (very much) older brother. This works for me. It doesn't work for everybody.
The SAs have followed suit, but others may not be comfortable with this, and I will refer to them as Mr. or Ms. or however they prefer.
I still have a few Scouts who insist on calling me Mr. Maddox. I look around jokingly and ask if my father came in.
A couple of the kids even have nick names for me. Just as long as it isn't meant with malice, I'll accept it. At least I'm making a connection.

Another how does your Troop do it? Do the Scouts of your Troop refer to
the adult leaders by their first names or their sir names?
