Running around naked

My four year old daughter loves to run around the house naked...she can't even go to the bathroom without taking her pants and underwear off (although she tells me she does not do this at school). At what age does it become inappropriate for her to do this?

My 4 children ages 15,13,11 and 9 years old, still hang out naked at home usually after dinner while getting ready to be bathed. They are allowed to be naked as long as we don't have company.

My oldest child is 7 and she still goes nude at home. I think you should let the child decide when they want to go clothed or naked, not the parent.

My boy is only little... I wouldn't worry too much with a four year old but maybe set some boundaries if you need to? When I was the same age I never liked wearing undies. I clearly remember my Mum negotiating with me, she asked me to wear undies while her friends were visiting but was fine with me taking them off at other times.

lol how cute my 4 yold is axactly the same !! she hates wearing clothes ! i have never hidden nudity from my children or ever said it was a bad thing ive just sugested that as they get older that no one wants to see them naked .... and that the only people to be naked in front of is mum n dad NEVER anyone else.. my now 6 yold daughter is only now starting to want her privacy from her younger siblings when getting dressed she has even started saying to daddy not to check on her when shes in the bath cause he mite see her boobies so thats great but my 4 yold would run around naked in front of anyone and everyone if we allowed it lol but i feel 5-6 is a good age to cover up your son or daughter will soon want to cover up herself i wouldnt worry about it to much just yet good luck

My kids are little nudist too and we're fine with it. My oldest is 3 1/2 and I don't see it being an issue until she starts to show discomfort. If we have company we do make them get dressed although if it's close family I'm ok with just panties. I think nudity isn't a big deal until it starts to be made into one, kwim?

All my daughters do this. We made our eldest wear underwear and she HAS to have clothing on when anyone comes over. Otherwise, who cares, let them enjoy the freedom :)
