NO NEED to force kids to STOP being naked in the home at ANY age...the kids wishes should be respected,over ignorant social demands and dictates.Kids just NATURALLY LOVE TO BE NAKED ,..I find that nude-families have healthy minds,and to the filthy minded,covering up with clothing does not stop the negative thought process....even if you are not a "nude family" at least allow the kids the freedom to choose if they WISH to not always be forced to wear cloths,some parents even force their kids to wear cloths in their bed..

........We teach our kids that the body is beautiful and that NO PART is nasty or bad......some posts even tell of trying to force a child to not sleep

nude..when the child is very comfortable that way...

.We moms can give these kids the choice to be naked in the home or not,because if they are taught that certain parts are bad and nasty,this causes ANXIETY and SHAME and guilt which in turn can cause mental illness,perhaps affecting negatively for life...so lets let the child know that we know that the body is BEAUTIFUL,and that their wishes will be honored.

My daughter loved to be naked! We actually ended up doing something we referred to as "naked time" she could be naked for a few hours in the evening. We would say "OK it's naked time now" and then at the end say "Naked time is over now, time to put clothes on." It worked well for her.

I'm a widowed dad with a 10 year old daughter and we are not a nudist family. I've seen her bare heine since she was born and I still see it but only in the house. Like after a bath when she heads for her room to get dressed. It's just normal for kids to run around bare, My advise is never impose shame.

Yes both of my kids do, all quite innocent fun , Iv'e sometimes noticed my son get an erection when playng about and my daughter just laughs and says he has got a stiffy again and it is all taken as normal and light heartd fun. They certainly do not do it if other people are present and there isn't anything sexual about it between them.

My son likes to be bottomless all the time at home. My reasons would be because he feels it's much faster and easier when going to use the toilet.

Susan by law cs has to respond when a report is issued. It's not that they will do anything, but they have to respond is all. it's best to keep the naked in the house or the privacy of the back yard though.

it depends on how old they are and if they are staying in the house or a privately fence back yard. Yes kids don't think anything wrong with skin it is the adults that make it have to do with sex. But that is the point for me, you don't know what some adult pervert is going to think or do, so to keep them safe I would keep them in the house. Also depending on the place where you live you can get in trouble with the children services. One of the ladies I worked with, her pre-school aged children would run out the front door without their clothes on and even though she was right behind them to come back in she was reported by a neighbor and was investigated for child neglect.

my son will be 6 in september and he gets naked any chance he gets. he also likes to pull down his pants and show his butt and sometimes his privates i have to remind him that you don't show your privates to people, but i think he does that for attention. he loves to sleep naked and sit naked with a towel after his bath/showers. i think its ok to run around naked, but he's getting older and I'm trying to get him ou tof the habit now, especially since I've recently married and now he has a stepdad around a lot more.

the body is a very beautiful and magical thing something that shouldn't be clothed, i am a nudist mother of two and divorced to be open and encourage a better and relaxing life style for my children. very natural soothing and peaceful nothing more, the restrictions from clothes is a burden of societies wight on the world, rules, degrading impacts of commercialism towards children. live free and be loved. no clothes in this home.

I have a 3 year old and a 7 year old and i let them run around naked all the time. Just the other day they were outside playing naked in the mud lol. The way i figure is that they are only this young once so why take away a simple pleasure of being a kid.

Depends on their ages. I let my toddlers run around naked, our bodies are not sinful, it is the thoughts in our minds. That being said, children are innocent as long as we allow them to be. It is when you don't see them running around and they are still naked that you should start worrying. But my kids liked being naked up to this day, they just learn that there is a level of modesty to be upheld around the opposite sex, and around non family members, and well certain other family members. In this day too many people have a negative body image and being afraid of nudity is a beginning that needs to be handled gently.

HI Kristin ,Greetings !,my name is Laura,mom of 8 soon to be 9,

well i feel that your-self &,, ALL we moms can keep the Faith ~of ALL being Happy and content,yes?hopefully the dears can STAY as SELF-CONSCIOUS..as they are NOW ! ,means they are TRULY CONSCIOUS NOW, ,aware NOW, that they love to be naked,and FREE , THEY have PURE minds,and see no wrong,no nastiness,...all kids just NATURALLY like to be naked...the problem lies with the social programming in the adult....to the adult, being naked = sex,and thus obscenity,so the " grown -up,".....projects this onto our kids. Should we try to Learn to advance a little beyond the ignorance of the middle ages and Victorian times. Try to see with PURE eyes...and you will be in the CONSCIOUSNESS of the Self that does not intend to burden these innocent ones ( at any age)-for a lifetime,..with SHAME and .guilt and anxiety,..we MOMS can give the respect to our children to choose ,how they wish to be happy and comfortable.As I say a lot in counseling,...."Our greatest teachers are our children."

hi , Chaya....remember,there are hundreds of thousands of nude families in our world, ALL AGES IN FAMILY it is a way of life,and in all my counseling,i have found that nude families are the most mentally sound.......you see, cloths do not prevent a perverted mind from its twisted thinking process...{ see my responses on this page .........we have been so programmed in AMERICA to think nudity = sex,or hanky-panky....but with PURE eyes,we see beauty only

How old are they, up to age five, it's fine as long as there are no houseguests. Under age 2, if the houseguest doesn't approve, they can leave. I can remember running around naked when I was 2-3 when the priest was there. As soon as my mom or dad's wife noticed, she got me dressed, but even he didn't care. Over age ten, I'd think there is some abuse going on, but chances are that's not the issue.

Nudity is natural in our house. With just girls and the oldest now 8, my husband does wear undies but I am naked in front of my girls so they can see I am comfortable with my body, even on the days I'm really not :). My five year old is naturally more modest and self aware so she usually wears something but my oldest is a free bird and I don't curtail her desire to be naked at home. She knows her home is her place to relax as she sees fit. Elsewhere...clothing is required.

yes,mine and my mom friends do not mind it...it seems that some have been trained to see the body as being,bad,nasty but we see it a beautiful,( blame that on our Creator )all age kids should choose if they wish to not be forced to always " cover-up" ...the" nastiness",or the beauty is in the minds EYE ,it has always been strange to me that some families make a point of not allowing family members to see each other unclothed--,the adults think that nudity = sex ,and they project these adult dynamics onto their little kids, who do not even know what sex is.... ,

Unless your in the nudest lifestyle, older then 5 is time to curtail the habit, 9 is way to old to be nude around the house in my humble opinion.

Normally as soon as my kids get home from school he strips to his underwear. My youngest likes to sit naked after she gets a shower or bath, although she would prefer to be naked all time. My middle girl would prefer to be I her undies.

My 9 year old spent several years being naked. As long as they are aware of when it is approp. and not, no worries. They will grow out of it. Think about the less laundry they are creating for you. It's much easier to wash a body, then get popsicle off of a white shirt right?

3 out of 5 of my kids liked to run around naked when they where about 1 1/2 -3 I think it is easier for them when they are learning to use the potty.

My 6 year old thinks it is super hilarious to run around naked and he likes to moon people. I have explained to him that his is inappropriate at his age and he needs to keep his clothes on. My one year old daughter also likes to run around naked and once her diaper comes off shes off as well. I think all children go through this stage and they will become more self concious and not be naked when they get older.

My nephew came to my house the other day and asked why my 20 month old is always naked exept her nappy, untill that moment I never really noticed that she dose her clothes of a lot. My 4 year old will often make a run for it whilst she's getting dressed and she thinks she's hilarious but I do try to insist on clothes at her age lol.

My daughter likes to run around the garden in the nude. (when it is hot enough too in the UK) lol. She also insists on wearing a skirt or dress in the summer. Yet the rest of the year she is up to her neck in polo jumpers and thick woolen socks! It seems only when the sun comes out do the clothes come off!
