Formal- cómo está

On the question:

Mamá, ________

Why wouldn't "cómo está" be a correct answer? Wouldn't it be formal when speaking to a parent?


Thank you!

Hola Ashley

it would be very unusual (in Spain) to speak with that formality to a parent, despite them being elderly. It used to be a custom in rural areas in an old fashion way in Spain years ago but it is not nowadays. Very few people maintain that level of formality now.
