their first- or second-grader wants to watch cartoons sans all that pesky clothing?

RE:What's the Cutoff Age for Kids Running Around Naked?

I raised my son and daughter in a nudist home. We taught them that there was a time to be covered up, like when non nudist friends were visiting, going to the grocery store or church,.....just a few battles I remember.....and when it was OK to be nude. My children understood from an early age the do's and don't of nudism. They were raised attending nudist and non nudist events. Once they began to mature, they knew they could wear clothes or not....We let them make their own choices. Now they are in their mid 30's and are fully functioning, well adjusted members of society. I admit, the 80's and 90's were a different time to be raising children but I hate think that kids just can't be kids even at home.

If at home, never. They should be allowed to be naked at home whenever they want to. As the previous poster stated, teach them the appropriate places to wear clothes.

I agree with posts #3 and #4. Why should you have a cut-off age. Family nudity is good, it creates a stronger bond and is healthy. As the child matures, let them decide when they want to wear something at home.

Agree 100%. Common sense presides so it makes sense. In the home who cares. If they are comfortable with their siblings and nudity let them be nude.

There is no "Cutoff" and there shouldn't be. I agree with Anattin that there are correct times and non correct times to be nude but why stop them at a certain age from being nudists, that's a weird question to ask.

Based on the article, the parent expressed some concerns regarding this topic.
Are his concerns legitimate or unfounded?

There should be no cut off age.

Kids, I should point out, are natural born nudists. I know families in which the kids were permitted to go nude from early on before society could teach them that nudity was taboo.

Most of those kids are now in their mid-40s and early 50s, have been continuously practicing the nudist lifestyle, and are now raising their kids the same way.

People often say that nudist parents should draw the line at puberty, but thats based on the concept that there is something shameful wrong about the processes of sexual maturation. Remember, nudist doctrine holds that the naked body and all its natural functions are beautiful and should be celebrated!
