  • Um, no. I think it's nasty to be such a dirty minded pervert that a mom being unclothed in front of her young child is somehow sexual.

  • I think that when they are little (like, from NB-maybe 2 or 3 years) it is okay...but it is different depending on if you have a boy or girl. My mom never flaunted herself in front of me, but I saw her naked...but when you have a son, once he is at least 3, I think you should cover up...but that is just my personal opinion. To each HER own!

  • Depends on the age. I think it would be inappropriate to walk around your kids when they reach a certain age.

  • i think it depends on the age, especially if the child feels uncomfortable. I mean I couldnt imagine as a teenager seeing my mom walk around naked. even if it was just her and I I would be embarrased lmao. my son is 13 m/o and SO and I are nude in front of him all the time, and we let him run around nude sometimes to air out his tush. nothing wrong with a naked body!

  • No I don't but like others said, there is an age where it becomes inappropriate. What that age is probably depends on the kid.

  • My son is 2, and I stopped showering with him when he wanted to know what "those" were. (In reference to breasts) But he'll occasionally see stuff when I'm changing or going to the bathroom. Not NAKED, but glimpses. Meh. It's not weird till they think it is!

  • My kids (15mon & 2 1/2) have seen me naked, like after a shower or while I'm changing. But I don't actually just walk around my house in the nude. I do agree it does become inappropriate as a child gets older. As my son is getting older, I plan to watch myself more to make sure I do not change in front of him.

  • No. When it becomes uncomfortable, then stop. It's not sexual. We don't just sit around naked. We don't cook or eat meals naked.
