How old is too old?

I walk Around the house all the time in my T-shirt and undies and I have an 8 month old son. When should I stop doing that? When will he understand that that's girl and that's boy!

  • I still walk around in my t-shirt and undies and I have an 12 year old SS.

    Really, what I wear around the house covers more than my bathing suit.

  • My son is 15 and I still do that.

  • Never :o) Unless he has friends over, of course

  • My son is 3-1./2 and I still get changed/dressed and in and out of the shower naked daily with him around
    I grew up where it just wasn't an issue, my mom would change in front of us and we just never thought it was weird.
    my DH on the other hand hides his body/being naked and thinks I need to stop being being the way I am. I think its just a personal
    thing and IF it makes your child uncomfortable then you stop or IF it makes you or SO uncomfy then you need to start to think about it.

  • Never only when you have other people around. My df walk in boxers and a shirt all day long unless we have people over.

  • Never. Mine still bathe with me (they will be 4 & 6 in a couple weeks). There is absolutely nothing wrong/strange/unhealthy about nudity. They will simply learn to accept it for what it is if they see it, rather than automatically connecting sexuality with nudity. Got news for ya- the two are NOT mutually exclusive.

  • If it starts to make either of you uncomfortable.
