Am I saying this wrong or is there another way?

    Every time I tell Siri to send a text to mom I say it like this

    "send mom a text blah blah"

    Siri always thinks I'm saying "mama" instead of mom

    Anyway to fix this?

    say "text my mother ______" and see if that helps
    of course you have to set the relationship for your mom first

    ____ is my mother

    How about "Tell mom <message>" would that work?

    You can also give your mom the nickname "moma", this way it'll send her the text.

    Most likely it's because you've put 'mom a' together.

    I usually say 'Text (person) that ...'

    YAY! I just got my Mom, my sister & my son added via Siri after getting errors previously. Thanks for the exact wording that worked! :)
