What are your policy with your daughters as far as walking in the house in underwear and/or nude? I have a 14 yo daughter and 6 yrs ago i got divorced and now live on my own and since it;s always just us girls, I've never made an effort to conceal my body etc. If i was nude and had to get something in the kitchen i simply went. She is the same way as me, we have a open door policy and no secrets. I think we are much closer than most of her friends are with heir own mothers in that regard.



Just wondering what your thought and habits are

I do. My daughter is 16 years now and we have a very good relationship. I'm never clothed in the house unless I'm going somewhere or just came back. We don't see nudity as a sin. It is about being comfortable.

i am a mum of three boys and have walked thru the house in undies and less. I think being open has been beneficial. i havent gone out my way fo flaunt my body as it were, but never suddenly covered up if caught nude or in undies. I think i have a great relationhsip with my boys and they can talk to me about anything

Im always nude around home, my daughter is 8 and she doesnt have problems with it. My girlfriend and I both have been in the pool naked with her.

My kids are only small so if I need to run out of the shower to get the phone I won't be dressing first. I see no reason to walk around naked or whatever constantly I didn't do it even when I had no kids.

i agree mona. boys can be and were just as curious and think best way to be is open and honest. and in puberty it can be a stressfull time

not nudists either but growing up it wasnt a big thing, as teens we got more private but its no big deal and even now as adults seeing each other, ie walk in the bathroom while one in the shower doesnt cause a fuss. i think it actually promotes a healthy self image and while none of us are model material i think mine, my mums and sisters bodies are beautiful in our own way, complete with stretch marks, scars and lumps n bumps :)

My girls are only 10, but all my kids (almost 4 year old boy as well) are nudists.... Sometimes one or the other of the girls wants and gets privacy (unless someone has to pee), but we're quite casual around here. Nudity, for the most part, is a complete non issue in our house.



I am NOT a nudist as I'm not really comfortable staying naked, but the bathroom door is pretty much never closed and if I have to leave the bathroom for some reason before I've gotten dressed... so be it.
