    Default Spin Off - What age do you stop letting your kids see you naked?

    The other thread got me thinking - at what age do most of you stop letting your kids see you naked? Does it matter if they are girls or boys? Any other thoughts you have on it.

    This probably won't be much of a debate, I'm just curious what other parents do.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, DH has always been more private about his body. He doesn't mind if T sees him with his shirt off, but he would not welcome being seen without his pants. That's not just with kids either; of course I've seen him naked plenty, but we've never been the type to pee with the door open or anything like that, even just around each other.

    For me, I didn't mind T seeing me naked when he was younger. I would say from birth to about 3 it didn't cross my mind at all. But the older he has gotten, especially now that he is 4, I'm just not comfortable about having him see me naked. I will sometimes still let him see me in bra and underwear since I figure he could see that much at any beach, but I would prefer to be fully clothed. I'm not really sure what changed between 3 and 4, it just stopped feeling comfortable. It's good though; we have taught him the concept of privacy, and now he asks for privacy himself sometimes (which is hilarious because other times he still feels free to run around without a stitch on...)

    DH used to take my oldest into the shower with him when she was a newborn. Not passed say 6 months though. My girls are used to seeing me in just a bra and underwear or in the bathroom. I get no privacy It was the same when I grew up. I never saw my dad naked, but I saw my mom all the time.

    DD still showers with me happily. She will till one of us gets uncomfortable. At this point she still likes to try to climb up into my shirts so I don't think it will be any time soon. She herself is a little nudist whenever she can be.

    She has never really seen much of DH, although she will go in to the bathroom when he is in the shower. She did look in one day when she was about 2 and he got a "what's that daddy?" He hasn't let her see him naked again since. They already had their uncomfortable moment. lol.

    My boys are now 9 and 10 I stopped when they started wanting to be covered themselves. From birth I bathed with them, I remember my oldest it was about 4ish that he made a comment, and didn't want take a bath with me or brother. at about 3 I stopped bathing with them I guess.

    Right now I am naked around them often. DH not so much..his comfort level. They've walked in on him in the bathroom though.

    I would stop when and if they ask me too or when I see that they are being more modest themselves I will stop.

    Well since there are older kids now, there is a lot less nudity then when they were all little. So my older kids probably saw a lot more nudity at an older age than my younger ones have. I can't even remember the last time any of them have seen me or DH completely naked.

    In my undies isn't a huge deal really though. I realized this morning as i was getting dressed that all my clean jeans were still in the laundry room. I walked pass everyone in just my underwear without giving it a second thought.

    Only my oldest is modest enough to not want to be seen by anyone naked. I still have to tell my 9 year old son that he should be closing the door when using the toilet or taking a shower.

    We're naked a lot. Kids would rather be naked or just have undies on than be clothed in the house, especially DD. The kids still bathe together and sometimes I jump in with them. DD always takes that opportunity to say something like "Mommy, your tummy's jiggly there because I kicked you alot when you were growing me." Gee, thanks babe. The kids share a bedroom and always see each other naked. Doesn't bother them or us one bit. I guess one day we'll stay more covered up, but right now nudity is a non issue.
