Last night, I got my 4 yo daughter and 2 yo son ready for bed. They share the same room, but have seperate beds. I tucked them in. About 30 minutes later I heard a lot of laughter from their rooms. When I went in there, I turned on the lights and my 4 yo jumped out of my son's bed and back into hers and she was naked. I asked what was so funny, and she said that her brother took off his pull-ups. He was naked too. My initial reaction was upset! I told them both to get dressed and sent them back into their own beds and told them to keep their clothes on and go to sleep. Once I got over the upset stage, I became very concerned on where my daughter would get the idea of doing something like that. My husband and I don't share a bed anymore, so I know she didn't get the idea from us. The night before, they slept over at my father-in-law's place. Before I put them bed, my daughter mentioned how she liked sleeping in grandpa's bed which was news to me. So now I am wondering if they got this idea from over there. I dunno...is this something kids do? My husband thinks she might have gotten this idea because they take baths together. I had siblings and we took baths together, but we never under the covers naked with each other. I don't know what to do or how to perceive this situation. Any suggestions?Answer Question

Personally I think it was probably very innocent. I mean you can talk with your FIL and see what is going on at his house. I have 2 boys and 1 girl and when kids are this age they become curious about the opposite sex and it is all just kids stuff. They might not understand that there is anything wrong with it and at their ages there really isn't anything wrong with it. Yes I would talk to them about how they should not sleep together naked, although I would not punish them or yell at them. I think I would explain why I didn't want then doing this and I would talk to my DD about why she likes sleeping at your FIL house before I over react.
I mean if they take baths together and they are comfortable being naked around each other then it is probably more that then anything else.
That is just me! Good Luck!
