When my dd was liitle, about two, she loved running around naked. So when it was hot outside I`d let her run through the sprinklers in the nudie. I never saw an issue with it but apaerntly my neighbors did. I had  so many people stop and tell me how inappropriate and dangerous it is. Supposedly she was going to be targeted by  pedophiles  now. (Ignore the fact that she is constantly supervised!)  Eh, I`m pretty sure that an article of clothing is not going stop a pervert from looking at any child.

I would not allow my kids out of the house naked. I don't let them run around inside naked either, but I do feel that if they are they should be in the house or in a yard with a privacy fence or something.

Actually you can post naked pics of kids on here. They just have to be 6 months or under :-)

although I didn't vote it, I actually think anytime before puberty, however, I'm think only kids under 5 can easily get away with it any time so, I'm surprised about your neighber,

my dd wears pants but goes topless at our friends pool and she is 9 years old, and totally flat and no body hair.

At home, whenever they feel like it. In public I guess under 5 is fine with me. I have taken my kids to the beach and they diapers got nasty because of the water (I'm talking before diapers little swimmers) and I just let them be, of course that was in Mexico.....completely different culture, everybody minds their own bussiness (except for Mothers-in-law lol)

I voted never but that's because when you say public I picture mdconalds or walmart or a public park lol... not your home.

Your home your rules... I'll allow my daughter to do it when we have our own home with spinklers.
