At what age do you think is inappropriate for a son to see his mother with just her undergarments on?

Or even in the nude?

  • Depends on the child.

  • Whenever either Mom or child become uncomfortable.

  • I think that when your child becomes uncomfortable that is when it is inappropriate. I have 2 boys ages 12 and 10 and 1 daughter age 7. My boys will still walk in on me when I am getting dressed. My DD still sees my DH in his under ware at time.

    For my family this works. I think you have to find what works for your family and what you and your children are comfortable with.

    Good Luck

  • My oldest is 7 and my kids still see my in my underwear. I BF so they see that too, they don't think twice and think that women are supposed to BF.

  • I don't think there is a right or wrong age, only what works for each family. Everyone of my kids will walk in on me and think nothing of it, if the parents make a big deal the children will.

  • i stopped doing that ever since my baby was 1 month old but then i thought to myself i doubt he'll remember my body parts at that young age.

  • When your son starts asking questions or imitating your body parts when you should stop lol. As they get older they will tell you when it makes them uncomfortable.
