It's under the heading

"I Walk Around Naked in Front of My Kids! - Coffee Shop" (only 4 min.)





Several related topics come up. Nudity in the home, around the kids, kids brought into a ladies (or men's I suppose) locker room.



How do you feel about this? Do the "guidelines" change depending on whether you have girls or boys, their age? What about, like the mom mentions, cousins visit? Kid's friends?



We are not a naked household and would never walk around like that.

However I have posed for my son's artwork, a couple times in the nude (not something he requested but for what I felt would be more artistically authentic).

In general we are a pretty conservative family.

I feel nudity at home and within the family is OK and really helps to convey an umcomlicated view on bodily functions and looks It helps the self esteem.
My sister and I rented a cottage in the Austrian alps.It was equipped with a sauna which we used everyday We were all totally nude of course My son (14) was ok with this as well as his Twin girl cousins (both 13)
Really no problem at all and why should it?

We are a naked family, we are also in a nude community. We are naturists/nudists, so nudity doesn't bother us. Our family is a little unconventional in many ways anyhow. We are a blended family, in a way, as I am divorced and had one child, remarried and had two more children, but my ex-husband lives with us and is a part of our family. My children are taught that there is nothing shameful or inherently sexual about the naked body and that bodies come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors.

In our immediate family, at night in bed and in the morning getting ready for work or school. In our backyard pool with my sister and her kids and mine. Boys and girls 7-12.

Home nudity is such a personal decision, I don't even understand how the "panel" feel they have even the slightest right to make a comment on someone else's decision. The funniest part was when "nekkid woman" made the massive assumption that the naked lady hadn't consulted her nieces parent on the issue. Excuse me! The parent is going to be either her husbands or her sibling; pretty sure they talk if the niece is a regular visitor. The panel is so typical of narrow minded society. Sorry but it's none of your God damn business what anyone else wears at home!!

My family are a naked family. My husband sometimes do have some clothes on, but for the most part we don't wear clothes. My friends and family all know about us. My kids are 20 and 16 now. Boy and girl. Only my daughter lives with us now. For me, clothes are very uncomfortable. We don't see nudity sexual. We do the same thing as clothed families, but less laundry... ha ha.

Me and my hubby and our 14 yr old twins Aaron and Cindy are nude 24/7 365 days... we live in a nudist resort and we are a unusual family to some and we believe in the family bed.

First - Clearly the youtube video is slanted against home nudity. For as open as the show claims to be, right from the start they seem to cast a negative tone to the mom being nude. Home nudity is all dependent on your personal level of comfort and your personal choice. All of the negative issue raised by the broadcaster can easily be addressed with open communication with your husband and children. Personally, I do not have an issue with home nudity and in the warm weather we are nude at home as much as possible

So I do not see a problem with this. Honestly I spend time naked and I dont see a problem with this. I have been naked before in front of my son, who is 5 and my neice who is 14.

My kids and my husband walk around naked at home too, I do wear clothes when my in-laws come over because they are a bit conservative and I am dressed around them, with my parents sometimes I'm naked and sometimes I am wearing clothes. Some of my kid's friends have asked me questions about my nudity and have answered them honestly and some of the other friends aren't fazed by it because they see their parents naked at home too.

Do your kids go naked other than swimming too? What about your husband?
Do you wear clothes when parents and in-laws are over?
When you kids' friends have been over does your nudity raise questions?

I walk around naked around the house a lot and all six of my kids see me naked including my 13 year old son. We swim naked in the backyard pool and go to a nearby nude beach. I too have gone naked in front of my kids friends because I know their parents very well also. I have helped my kids with their homework naked and settled their fights naked. I sleep in the nude and in the mornings I just get up take a shower and rest of the morning I am making breakfast and getting my kids ready naked or in my bra and panties.

I go naked in front of all of my kids (aged 7-10m) and in front of my sister and her children (aged 16-9). Whether they're a girl or boy doesn't matter. I only walk around completely nude in front of my children's friends if I know the parent well.

we do not walk around naked, but we have 3 boys. my husband and boys like to sleep in there boxers, but as soon as they get up they put clothes on. im always the first to get up in my house and the other day i had to pee really bad so i went from my room straight to the bathroom in my t-shirt and panties and my son heard me so he got up and saw me when i walked out, and he said mom go get some clothes on! he is almost 9 and the oldest. when i was younger i remember my mom walking around naked after the shower, but i was the only child left in the house, she never did it when my brother's were there.
