Forms of addresses in Arabic

What are words to address someone politely in Arabic (expecially in Egyptian Arabic) if you don't know or don't want to use someones name? Like Sir or Madam in English. Is there a difference between male and female addressees? Do they depend of age or relationship to the speaker? Are there words you can use to address children you don't know? Also, what are the words for mum, dad, gramma and grampa, when you address them?

Thanks.
