Sarah, the reason I pointed out that I was a Mod was because she had flagged my first response as rude language! Ha, she doesn't know the meaning of rude language.

I agree with Sarah and Michelle. I have a son almost 21---birthday next week--and he never flashed me or his sister when he was younger. It was not accepted. But then when it came to modesty, my kids learned from example and then also had their own thoughts on the matter---being nude in front of others was not acceptable to either of them...examples--daughter loved the styles of the mid-drift shirts but she would not wear them because they were too short above the waist--I offered to by the next size bigger so it would cover her more so. She never did pick out any of them. My son is another example. He had surgery at 12 or 13 for his appendix and the nurse got him some stuff for his shower and said if he needed help she would be glad to do it. He was appalled at the idea of a complete stranger helping him. So no, flashing mom is not normal.

I am a mod as well and I have two sons; neither would engage in this behavior and we are not a modest household. At 15 a good sense of privacy should be in place. Like Michelle, I doubt the validity of the OP

Sorry to burst your bubble but I am a moderator here so no, I'm not going anywhere.
It sounds like you are encouraging it instead of telling your son not to flash you, especially with the last comment about maybe it not being a problem.
You are the parent and you need to teach your child when it's okay to be naked around others and when it's not. If he's "flashing" you then that behaviour needs to stop. If you are seeing him as you walk past the door then ask him to close the door.

I'm not trolling maybe you should leave if you can't handle the real lives of parenting go to your safe space and leave us real parents chat

Lots of boys do that at and around that age, sometimes my husband will tell me stories of "accidentally" standing there when someone walked by or walked into the bathroom. I think the appropriate response is to laugh and roll your eyes, or maybe acknowledge what you see and tell him he's a great looking boy and you love him, either way it'll end in time I'd bet.
