Nude Around My Kids

I just don't see the big deal in your kids seeing you naked. Its when they start asking that's the most important. If they see it until then and all of a sudden your hush hush about it, then they will wonder, and it will lead to them asking their friends, boys and girls, and them looking at each other naked, and I for one would rather have my kids see my body, and ask about my body, rather than asking their friends and showing their friends.

I have two young sons and they think nothing of it when i shower or walk around to get my clothes from dryer, etc.. i don't see a big deal. we're family lol. I have no problem whatsoever with my son's seeing me naked, When my youngest tries to touch things, i let him know that that's not ok, and my oldest tells him he shouldn't...lol ..i even take my youngest in the shower with me and i see no problem with them seeing me as i think it's fine to open them up asking me questions and many conversations that i think parents need to have with their kids about their body parts

I agree. I've seen my parents nude. No big deal.

I agree with you. My wife and I were very comfortable being naked around our children. I believe it helped them develop healthy attitudes about their bodies and respect for other people's bodies. It also contributed to healthy discussions about body parts and bodily functions. Keep up the good work.

I did the same with my daughter when she was little and we still share things and she is very respectful of others.

Good education starts at home :)

my moms never cared if im nude at home or about going nude around me. she just tells me to make sure ive got something on before opening up the door or if someone is coming over

Aww, but pizza delivery guys love getting those sort of surprises!

A fine, open attitude - well done.

How young are your sons? I guess that YOU think THEY think nothing of you when you pass by naked, but you don't know exactly,they are evolving and maybe they don't even realize themselves yet what they think since they are young. Did they had yet an erection seeing you naked around?

Are you a really a nudist? A true nudist doesn't make a sexual situation from simple non-sexual nudity.

Come on, are you truly a careful reader? A true thoughtful reader doesn't bend others words so that they can fit into his or hers point.

No Problems as of now...and if you don't sexualize everything there should not be any problems in the future...

So true.

Well done for your openness, there is nothing wrong with parents being nude, it is natural and normal

the one thing i would change about my childhood would be to have missed out on all the repression and shame and awkwardness that blighted my life for forty years and which i am still trying to recover from.

You have the right idea to raise your children to be well-adjusted adults. I do not foresee any problems from your children touching a nude parent in an innocent, non-sexual way. To nudist nudity is about practicality and comfort - it is not about sex. That is why the world is overfilled with perverts.

hi,I am a nudist single breastfeeding mom with 6 boys to nearly 12 yrs old..we are nude 24-7 on our own private property...i don't understand what is the bug-a-boo about touching.... we all bathe togather,and in the Celtic way,we bathe each-other,no cloth.Social science speaks of skin to skin touching for affection,and bonding. I ALSO do very extended breastfeeding.BUT I am from Switzerland ,and some countries in Europe are more accepting of the beauty of the body...not ,as the Americas and England holds,,,that the nude body must not ever be seen by a family member ,and such as family massage is verboten...... to many nudity ,or carressing means only sex. To me,it is completly illigocal and very silly ,for family members to hide their bodies from each other...are they still promoting the old concepts ,the old paradigm of the Victorian Age /How sad.. N ow,speaking of negative programing,.what kind of message does this " some body parts are good and acceptable,but,others are really nasty.."..send to our kids.?I t is not the nude body that causes harm,but the dirty,unbalanced,self-centered violent mind that does.

Great way for you to teach them about the body parts to name them and also they learn how to wash themselves, by watching you.

It is only an issue to people who have been indoctrinated to believe seeing body parts is sexual. It isn't. Nudity is normal, it is just the human body. People are so prudish.

I find it okay. My mom has been that kind. My wife agreed to practice such a freedom. It wasn't total nudity at home, but our kids have seen us both in some nudity. My wife said it was easier to talk on sex and puberty to our kids as they were growing.

I think that you are doing something right here. Sex education should begin at home when the kids are young enough to be curious and wanting to learn. Society would be much heather, I think, if sexual issues were not considered taboo, but were simply discussed by responsible people in a "matter of fact" way. These kids have a biologically driven desire to figure it out. It is just going to happen. Why not that we parents give them a quality education?

no problem, i had a single mom, i saw all and so did she,

My daughter saw me nude from a young age and she grew to be a well adjusted adult. There is nothing wrong with them seeing you naked and I agree, its better the see you than have some stranger show them. My daughter asked many questions that I was happy to answer

good father..

I agree with your view on nudity. My mother raised me as a nudist and I have no issues with the female form. As I grew older I had a clearer understanding of both sexes and how to behave. Thank you for your story.

I do like your style and I'm sure when your kids are older they will also have an appreciation for it. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your story and I fully agree with you. I am a family nudist and mom of 9; mostly unplanned but oh well. I love being a mom and nudist. I responded to your other story about OMG, I am naked and others too. We all love our bodies here and do not mind showing others, except online with male perverts who use our pictures to jack off and share them on the net.

I'm glad that you are showing your kids there is nothing wrong with nudity and their bodies . It helps them by not going to the wrong sources .

I love being nude at home and sleeping nude with my kids too. I agree women are mostly so uptight about nudity. For God's sake ladies, it is the 21st century. I love being nude and I am very proud of my body and love to share it with my family. Go nude and enjoy it with family and other friends too.

It is the best way to relax too. ..no irritating clothes to wear!

Amen to that! :D

We are often nude at home too in a nonsexual way too even since our children were babies! They see nudity as normal...which it should be. Nudity and sex are separate issues.

I totally agree with you because I am a nudist wife and mom. I go nude with my children all the time and is not big deal ever here. We have a
very stable and happy home life, nudity is healthy, it is wholesome, we do not practice family sex, and my kids have great self esteem and love their bodies as a nudist and as I do.

April, I commented on your family bed story as well and believe in them for all families for the bonding between mom and her children.

Nice

I agree with you. We not only sleep together but shower together. There is nothing wrong with family nudity. I have 5 boys and 4 girls. We a re a nudist family. When giving sex chats I was nude as my kids were.

I was raised in a home where it was very taboo and/or told it was 'bad' when I didn't wear clothes. Even after bathing or before bed, or especially 'in' bed. I know my parents were trying to teach me 'right from wrong' and all, but I was made to feel 'guilty' for being naked or, pray tell, seeing another family member naked.

I'm sure, from reading your stories here, that you are a good mother and have the best intentions for your boys. So, what's the problem with you being nude in front of them and until they are totally grown ever wearing clothes in front of you?

You don't (and I'm sure, won't) flaunt yourself at them and if you did, it wouldn't amount to much, especially at their age. I feel it should be 'normal' for families to share their 'nude' times without shame. We all have bodies and boys always want to know not only what other boys look like but girls especially.

You are young and in good shape so, why not let them see what a 'real' woman looks like without clothes? I think you should do things not associated with nudity without clothes with them too! Cooking. serving breakfast on Saturdays or Sundays? Seeing you ANYTIME after bedtime? (You say in another story that you all sleep naked together?) But, not to any extream...just 'natural' as if it't the most 'normal' thing in your life...they'll hardly notice it and won't have to learn stuff on the 'street' as I had to...then it 'was' dirty.

If they have questions, answer them in 'no uncertain' terms but keep it simple. This isn't about 'sex' per ce. It's about sexuality and growing up healthy and respecting a woman for who she is.

Your approach is flawless. You are teaching your boys to be confident and comfortable in their skin. That will carry with them. Mommy is the greatest role model and her confident attitude will stregthen their character! Great job, Mom.

Sorry Aprilm32, i commented on your story before reading your profile. So is there a adult male figure they can relate to nude?

Does your husband get nude around them? Then they would see how the male body looks when older and also see that there is nothing wrong being nude. LIFE IS SHORT--- PLAY NAKED
