Should a mother go topless on vacation infront of her children?

I just recently came from a winter break abroad and was suprised to see how many moms were sunning topless around their children. What do think about this? Have you ever done this?

  • I do not find it upsetting to be in front of your children topless. My concern is being in front of outsiders in the presence of her children while she is topless. It is a poor role model and example to be setting.

  • Europeans do things differently then us Americans. Live in Germany for 5 years. Nudity is not a bad thing in Europe like it is here in America.

  • I wouldn't do it, but I'm not from a country that considers that OK, so that would be far beyond my comfort level.

  • I would do it in Europe...SURE!

    My DD sees me naked all the time anyway, we're not ashamed of our beautiful bodies. DH won't go walking around with his dong hanging out though...LOL!

  • spent a while in Europe and sex and nudity are very acceptable I think it is wonderful that they make it so open and comfortable. They think america is hippocritacle in this sense because we have the largest porn industry in the world.

  • I would not do it in any setting, but I don't criticize those who do.  To each his own.
