How are you doing at home is a good answer, since its idiomatic anyway

Is Americanised , and in Kiswahili we ask not about mama, but what is happening at home.

Well, the mama is the address (and it is possible to ask about someone's father or mother).

The English solution is terrible. It is not even idiomatic English.

This comes out idiomatic in English, therefor " How are you doing at home, mom" is acceptable

Is house an acceptable substitution for home? Or is there an important distinction in Swahili?

House is nyumba , home is nyumbani.
