So the topic came up in a convo about making your children wear underwear if you don't, since I have 1 friend who doesn't wear them and doesn't make her son wear them. I still think it's kind of icky, since I would obviously not wear the same pair of underwear every day but I know commando people who wear the same pants a few days in a row and that seems the same to me as wearing dirty underwear. ANYWAY, if you're commando, can your kids be?

I go commando most of the time.  Not to work, b/c scrubs are not reliable, lol.  Three of my kids are grown, so they can do what they want, underwear-wise.  Two still live here, and I know they wear them.  My 10 y/o wears them, just as I did when I was 10.

Rach makes them wear undies. I wouldn't, because I know how much I *HATE* wearing them. But she has a TOTAL fit if they don't have undies on at all times..

The only thing I'd be concerned about is when the little girls are older and start their period. Until a girl knows her body better, that could be an unpleasant surprise for a pre-teen(or a 9 year old, as my friend's daughter found out!)

I go commando on the weekends, skirt or not!  My kids must ALWAYS have on underwear.  When they are older they can make their own decisions.

I go comando and i tell my kids to put on underwear because their pants usually fall down and no one wants to see crack, but if they choose not to i dont care its their choice
