  • My kids can be naked in the backyard, but at a public beach, no way.

  • Definately not, I always started them right from the beginning we do not run around with nothing on in front of others. Our bodies are private, keep things that way. Some people just don't think.

  • Hell no. Naked in the privacy of our home yes. Naked in public No chance.

  • HELL NO, Not at that age. Maybe 1-2 with no top on but always bottoms. There are way to many perves out there!!!

  • seven or eight is a little old to be running around all day naked but I could see having her change clothes or take off her swimsuit to get in the car. I've seen grown men and women strip down out of wet suits in San Diego and it's just kind of accepted that the beach isn't a normal public situation.

  • Nope!

  • Shirtless, yes. But unless we're at a nude beach bottoms have to stay on.

  • No, that's just too old to be naked in public.

  • In other countries, it would have been perfectly normal...only in America are we so freaked out by nudity!
