Do you let your kids run around the house naked? At what age are they no longer allowed to be naked around the house?
No. I never let them run around naked. It's just not something I care for. Nothing against anyone else that does it.
I think it's because when I was young I always saw my dad's brothers kids always in their underwear and they were trashy. Like, living in a run down trailer park with chickens and broke cars in the yard trashy. So maybe I have a complex...lol.
We never did the naked kid thing around here. When DS was potty training I think he spent one day without a diaper and that was it.
I saw an article online this morning that mentioned this and it made me wonder what others thought.
DS sleeps in undies too. He wears the boxer briefs and will wear them in the morning for a while before he gets dressed.
Quoting PoehlerBear1983:My kids after showers but before bed run around in boxers because thats what they sleep in. Then in the morning before they get dressed for the day. Not a big deal to me. They never run around completely naked though
My daughter had a naked phase, around age two, when she discovered that she could undress herself. I thought it was funny, and it passed pretty quickly.
No they never did that. While potty training that had just a pull up on or underwear but thankfully potty training only lasted about a week. So it was short term.
No, our neighbors used to let their kids run around naked outside, or just in underwear and it drove us nuts. DS will sometimes strip down to his pullup in his sleep, and once in a while, one of them will make a naked dash out of the bathroom while I'm getting the other one dressed after bath time but that's about it.
Eh, sometimes. Not to much anymore but really when they are so young and then potty training it really just doesn't matter much to me. That being said, if anyone is coming over or even just coming by than my girls are fully dressed, and they are NOT allowed outside naked. I think it is a phase that most kids go through or try to go through and it runs its course rather quickly. It's not like I run around naked or by then doing so they are going to become nudists or anything.
