When is it no longer appropriate to be nude around kids?

I don't even remember when I last saw my dad or mom naked personally.

Whenever you or they are uncomfortable about it.

When were you last naked around you child? My son is 5 and my daughter is 3 and I think it might be time to cover around my son. Since my daughter is younger and female I might wait a little longer with her.

When they start to notice or ask questions. My daughter has seen me naked several times, mostly because she still climbs in the shower with me (because god forbid I shower alone!!). She hasn't said anything and doesn't seem too curious about anybody being naked. She's 4.

My son is 6 and I don't shower with him anymore. He isn't curious, but I also think he's too old anymore for me. He has seen me topless though when he walks in. I don't make a big deal out of it and just carry on getting dressed while explaining to him why we should knock.

Both of my kids are weird though and really have no interest in the difference between boys and girls. I mean, they know there is a difference, but never have said what the difference is or been interested in their different parts.

Well, my youngest is 4 and I'm not comfortable being naked around him. I guess it's a personal choice. 

I don't remember ever seeing my mother naked. I'm perfectly okay with that.

I've seen my mom naked, though I'd prefer not to have. My oldest is 7, and I don't change around her or shower with her, but we don't make a big deal about nakedness.

My boys are 13, down to 6. I don't freak out if they see me in the shower. If I have to grab something from another part of the house, I'll announce my nudity so theyay avert their eyes if they are uncomfortable. But nobody really seems to care.

 Around 3 is when I will no longer let my children see me naked. My husband on the other hand has no concept of modesty, lol, he grew up in a very unmodest family.
