Would you let your child run outside naked?

A friend of mine has a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy and she just admitted that she lets her kids run around in the back yard naked to play in the sprinkler.  Mind you, they live in a somewhat rural area but they do have some neighbors that you can see from their house and they do not have a fence. But generally, it's pretty much a private area. 

I didn't think twice about it, but then when I mentioned it to my husband he thought it was crazy.  There have been a lot of news stories lately about peeping toms and he said no one can be sure that no one is looking at their kids.  I have been to this woman's house and it's not completley isolated, but I'm sure neighbors behind her can see what's going on in her yard.

 In a private area I would but in a community I would at least make them wear a diaper or panties.

I would never let either of my children run around outside naked regardless of where I lived.

I don't even let them run around in undies.  They need to have shorts on at the very least, with LOTS of sunscreen.

I let my two yr old boy run outside one undies and naked inside. I have a fence and it's a private yard though.....he's potty training. I think I'd make them were undies but it's not a big deal I guess

I wouldn't. They would have to at least wear shorts or swimming trunks.

Isn't that why they make bathing suits?

I don't let my son run around naked outside. He is one and i don't want him to sit in the grass and get bugs on his little butt or a rash from the grass, He is very fair skinned so i put alot of sunscreen on him and 95% of the time he also has a shirt on.  Although i do let him go around naked in the house.
