Help with my Naked children!

Aprilanne - posted on 08/20/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I'm hoping for the advice of anyone with 2 children on what is age appropriate and where to draw the line. My kids love to be naked. They have no sense of privacy or modesty, which was fine with me for a long time, but my son is now 9. His sister is 5. They still take baths together and want to. They have no problem being naked around eachother. I'm wondering if he'll just naturally become more private as he gets older or if this is something I need to nip in the bud. I hate to make them feel strange or ashamed of their bodies in any way, but he seems a little old for them to be bathing together....Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

They shouldn't be taking baths together at this point. Naked should be restricted to their bedrooms. I think it's fine for a five year old to run around naked, but nine is a little too old for it,
