Whether it was that image or my nature, I used to take off clothes at night, though my younger sister would sleep in same room. Raising 3 teenage boys alone made her uncomfortable and she became crazy strict about covering up, even to the point of yelling at me when my daughter came along. I don't know how to describe that moment, but I felt it with my older child, so I've tried to not openly be naked around him. Boys didn't have to wear shirts, I didn't see why I had to. Besides, nothing will make the kids more confused and uncomfortable about nudity than the sense that Dad isn't comfortable when Mom is naked. Heck, quite often he'll even come in the bathroom while I'm in the bath and have a chat.
We cosleep and i only feel comfortable sleeping with my baby with underwear on, again my choice, my comfort levels. I like to see them grown up in natural dress, they certainly would see us naked. So unless we are going to set up an alternative society, we have to accept that our kids will pick up many of the 'norms' out there — and we have to go with it, or risk making them feel uncomfortably different. And they will pick up on that if the parents can't agree on what and when to cover up. But if they show discomfort when, say, you're brushing your teeth naked, just close that door.

To make them want to do all these things because they want to be healthy, not just skinny. Perhaps there is a way to appease both parents here. I don't know if it fostered a positive body image onto us because I'd say we both lack in that department. They're going to be accosted by images of perfectly Photoshopped and smooth women their entire lives. I loved the openness of nudity and am continuing that type of life. In my opinion, as I can see is the many people opinion, nudity didn't not be confused with sex.
Whenever I'm by myself I love being naked. Is not wrong with nudity from the mama or papa or kids in any age, same in the teenager. My mom has always been overweight, but very accepting of her body. But I never thought much of it having her in my room while I dressed, or in the bathroom while I showered.
But now that our youngest son is about to turn one and our oldest son is just over three and well aware of the differences between my body and his and his brother's, the thought of my nudity at home around them has stirred up a sense of panic in my husband again. As I got older, she would walk in my room while I was dressing. Eh, that's not totally true. My husband had always liked it in the past. My son almost 5 has bathed with me, slept next to me, and has always enjoyed his own nudity.
I don't like being naked other than while showering or changing. I've even given sleeping naked a shot a couple of times to see how it'd go, but it turns out I hate it. I'm sure you'll make the right choice for your family. Good job for standing your ground, allow your husband time but do try to get him to understand the importance of such a great relationship you will have with your sons! I grew up seeing my mom for who she was: a brilliant engineer, a good listener, and a human calculator.
Everybody will growing up and need to know that a relationship between people can have sex, but see other people naked not necessary has a sexual connotation My dad was never naked around us I have 1 brother and 1 sister. Patriarchy is all about women believing that how they feel in their bodies is secondary to how other people feel about their bodies. Yes i could have put barriers up and shut them out, but why, they grew up with me and if they were uncomfortable then they could make sure they steered clear. Isn't that why as a Western society we have agreed to wear clothes in public? As for me, I have no intent of covering up. I want them to respect all shapes, sizes, and colors of people's bodies for more than just their aesthetic appeal. .
Its right and proper that they are educated in the etiquette of when its not acceptable and why but otherwise they will find their comfort level I'm a fairly private person , I dont like being nude in front of people. Just because nothing happens outwardly, doesn't mean there isn't a real risk of negatively impacting children. This was not something I ever vocalized to either of them. He'd come home from a long day at work to find his naked girlfriend sitting at her computer playing , or his naked newly big-breasted pregnant wife sleeping on the couch. And there were a variety of body types and modifications! It didn't happen in my house growing up…ever.
We have been on holidays together in the past and we both sunbathe topless. For occasional nudity or partial nudity, I don't think it is ever completely inappropriate — walking through the house to the shower, etc. When and if they ask you to cover up, do it. It happens young too, before even understanding what is happening or why.
Being naked in front of my mom was just a natural thing; I never gave it a second thought. As I got older, she would walk in the bathroom when I was showering, and stay there when I got out and dried off. As much as you may feel that your nudity is important to your children, your husband's comfort level is also important. That doesn' t mean you should strut around naked in front of your kids. Reproduction in any form is forbidden. How much should we be careful of our children, and how much should we teach them that the world isn't about making them comfortable? I'm assuming Krystal isn't a self-centered idiot like my dad, so I guess I'm just saying you gotta watch out and be sensitive to your children's averted eyes and fake smiles.
