When should parents stop being naked around their children?


[deleted account]

We have 2 boys (5&8) and one girl (3) and we try not to be naked around them. Every once in a while they may catch one of us in the act of dressing, but we never make a deal of it. We have a "no locked doors" policy, mostly in case of emergencies, and we are training the kids to knock before entering the room, which works most of the time. We never make a big deal about nudity, because we don't want the kids to be afraid or sickened if they see a naked body later on. We don't, however, feel it's right to walk around naked in your house in front of family members. I equate it with consideration. It's like walking around naked in front of your roommates. People have different comfort levels, and those should be honored.

I dont see a problem in it at all. My boy is 10 so I dont anymore and havent for awhile but my youngest is 3 so I still do with him. Youll know when your kids start telling you to cover up!

LOL, so do my daughters. They don't see their dad naked either. I feel it's inappropriate.

I won't let my husband walk around naked because I think it's inappropriate, we have a little girl. But she takes showers with me almost every day, and sees me naked all the time. We are both female so I don't really see a problem with it. If she or I become uncomfortable then we will stop. She's 3 right now and I don't have a problem with it. She always tells me in the shower "mommy I see your boobies".
