Naked Families? To Do Or Not To Do!
There comes a point as parents where we sit there and ask, “should we still change in front of our child?” Every child becomes curious of its own body parts and body parts in general. Once this happens us, as parents have to take a step back and make an important parenting decision, open nakedness in the home or private nakedness in the home? There is no right or wrong answer here each parent makes their own decision of what they believe in and what they want to instill in their children.
The one thing is that if you see your child getting uncomfortable at all then that is their way of telling you they are not comfortable with open nakedness anymore and they probably want you to stop. Some children become very quiet and want their space while others may just point and say “mommy’s boobie makes milk!” and that is normal to them. As long as everyone in the household does not feel uncomfortable and they know not to parade around naked everywhere then you do what you feel is right as a parent.
So what is the answer to this question? There is no answer. There are so many talks about body image and who knows which way is the right way. The right way is the way that you choose and believe in as a parent. So go with what you feel and stay attuned to what your child feels. What you feel and what they feel may be conflicted and having them feel comfortable is most important.
