Do you think it's odd for your blood family to see you less the dressed?

Or if your 16 boy or girl walked out of the bathroom with a towel and walked around for a few before getting dressed but they had a towel to cover everything.

I personally will not care if my son does this and wouldn't think much of it if he saw me in jeans and a bra or a slip.

  • For me personally, it doesn't bother me at all. I don't intend to raise my children to think that nudity (full or partial) is something to be ashamed of. It was a common thing for my mom to walk around in nothing but underwear and socks while I was growing up. She's...overweight, to be nice, but still it was no big deal. Seeing my kid in a towel wouldn't bother me at all, so long as it didn't bother them. The same goes for me being in that situation.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it but I have 4 boys and we do not allow that..Even at the young age they are..They know when my bathroom or bedroom door is shut they may not enter..of course with this said we try to respect each others privacy and of course there are at times when they come barging right into the bathroom while im in there..

  • I'd say it's ok up untill a certain age and sex. With your same sex child, it would be allright because you have the same tools. :) As they grow up, they aren't supposed to know what the opposite sex looks like under their clothes. You need to teach them about privacy. I went out with this one guy who's mom still came in when he bathed and would shower while he's in the bath. That's just bloody creepy. We were 18 at the time. So to answer your question, yep. It creeps me out.

  • Experts will tell you to start covering up in frony of a child when there are 3. Also, if you don't then you are kinda sending a message that nothing is private and putting your child in a confused state and possible risk for being sexually abused by others.

  • I think it's okay when the kids are younger,( like maybe up to 10), but privacy should be respected, although young kids won't always remember that!

  • I'm fine with anything that would be as revealing as what I or they wear on the beach. My DS15 is ultra-modest however. LOL He barely walks around without socks!!!

  • Lol I have a almost 4 year old so for me it's not a big deal I assume this is how I would be when he is 16.

  • Haha that's funny. My son trys to grab my boobs when I put a bra on the first time he did it I was shocked and quickly moved his hands an told him not those aren't parts to be touched on mommy. My son wasn't breat feed so I joke around when he starts getting close to me that they are my boobies never his and he laughs and goes on his way but he is autistic so he means nothing odd by it

    Oh but I had to stop my husband from smacking my butt or grabbing it cause one day after my husband did it my son repeats the action (he was a little over 2 at the time). But I was mad at my husband for doing it knowing our son liked to copy other peoples actions.
