Should I be ashamed of myself if my 5 and 7 years old son sees me nude?

Are my sons gona become rapist as they saw me naked?

Actually a week ago a relative of mine came to visit us, me and I mine sister, were playing with our kids in a small water pool at the backyard of our brother’s house, my sister is only 12minutes 34sec older than me though we are twins but not identical and we both got two sons, even my elder son and her elder son shares there birthday in same month and year, though dates differs. I was wearing a bikini cut panties and a thick cami top and my sisters was wearing t shirts and bikini bottom, so this relative of ours said that you should be ashamed of youselves, exposing your naked bodies to your sons, womens like you give birth to rapists and all that sort of cursing.

Do we supposed to wear a long dress or jeans top while playing in water with kids?

Your sons won't turn into rapists because they see you in swimming gear. What happens when you go to the public swimming pool or the beach? Does everyone have to cover up just in case there are young boys around?

Sorry but that is the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long time. My kids see me naked and they don't even comment about it. Why should we teach our children to be ashamed of the human body?

My kids are aged between 0-10. I had my best friend over who's kids are aged between 1-13. The kids were in the swimming pool at their house and me and my friend were just wearing thongs. All of the kids were skinnydipping. I think that that sort of behaviour is acceptable. We weren't raping the kids and the kids weren't raping us. Nothing sexual was going on. we were just living a perfectly harmless lifestyle that were okay with. some people may disagree but if youre not promoting rape to the kids then your doing nothing wrong.

the human body was created pure and beautiful,do not listen to the ignorant,little kids do not even know about sex,that is adults projecting their dynamics off on to the kids...see with PURE eyes,it is all in the mind that determines if you see , the body as nasty,or beautiful.. I am BF mom of 8 as of today,,and other moms and kids joins us at our hot-springs ,and all the kids enjoy running and playing naked in our own woods and meadows ... ....Laura Mornings,Naturopath,LC & child counselor...and Admin ~ Nature Moms community

My boys are 3.5 and 5.5 years old and they have seen me changing. They have asked a question here and there, but that's it. It's normal and natural. If you are uncomfortable with it than maybe you should try to avoid being naked in front of them. As for wearing swim wear, all women wear swim wear when swimming or on the beach. None of this means your boys are going to turn into bad children or get into trouble as adults.

Don't be silly, you should not be ashamed of your body. Your son won't be a rapist from seeing you in summer clothing or even in no clothing. I'm not saying that it is appropriate to flaunt yourselves naked around the place, but being seen in underwear or swimming costumes is definitely not going to do any harm to your sons.
