I freely admit it, I'm pretty much a nudist in the privacy of my own house- wearing my underwear pretty much most of the time.
What can I say? I like my comfort!
I've been recently told by mom that I need to have "boundaries" with my 3 year old son. It's not like my 3 year old and I have some freaky Oedipus thing going on. There is nothing weird, abnormal, awkward or gross and he's learning and understanding the concept of privacy just like any other 3 year old. I most certainly boundaries but that got me thinking to my upbringing....
I don't do anything different than my parents did when I was growing up. It was just never a "thing" then or now. My dad waltzed around in his underwear and my mom changed in front of me all the time. It's not like I was interested. It was just what it was, ya know?
I don't have issues with my body at home (elsewhere is another story). I waltz around my underwear, change in front of my child, and I pee with the door open, my sons co-sleeps with us too.
My husband is the polar opposite of me. He's a doors locked kinda guy even in front of me. I hate it for em and as an example to our son but he's ultra private and it is what it is.
I personally have no problem with these things and want my child to know and accept the human body and not be afraid of it.
What are your thoughts on the nude factor in front of kids?
Clane in charge.
