  • I don't see harm in your own home, unless she uses the bathroom around the place. And as long as she leaves her clothes on outside the home other than in a private yard, perhaps. She'll find out it is chilly to not have clothes on, or that she sticks to the leather sofa or something.

  • My ds used to run around our house naked and it drove my MIL crazy when she would visit but made potty training MUCH easier! I didn't make a big deal out of it he out grew it and went into the nobody can see him naked phase then when he turned 14 stopped wearing clothes in the house again! I had to buy him a 1/2 robe so he would stop walking out of his room in a sheet!

  • My daughter does this and she is almost 3. It bothered me some at first, but I remembered my niece and nephew doing the same thing. I quit trying to keep clothes on her when she felt like doing this, too much trouble and only wore me out. I am so glad I dont have carpet so if she pee's on the floor, its not a huge deal. That has happened about 3 times, so not a lot. Good luck, its a phase that my dd has been in for about a year now, I'm hoping things really change the coming year.

  • This is common for toddlers. The only thing you can really do is to start to teach them rules of when they MUST wear clothes but give them some times when they don't have to.
