Nude with young kids

My wife and I swim and sun nude in and around our private
pool. This summer will be more difficult than years past. Our son will be three
and a half. Up until now he wouldnt even notice us sunning nude in the back
yard. Ive noticed over the winter however that hes suddenly grown aware of
our nudity. Making things more difficult, nudity isnt an everyday thing in our
home. Hell catch one of us going too or from the bathroom but thats it. When
he notices us nude he makes a comment or acknowledges it. How do we go about
showing him nudity in a none sexual manor is healthy and normal but at the same
time teach him about when it is and isnt appropriate. We dont want him taking
his cloths off at daycare because mommy and daddy do it! Any advice would be
appreciated. We're seriously debating not being nude when hes around until
he's older and we can explain what is and isn't appropriate behavior! If we hold
off introducing him to nudity we'll have to wear suits for the next few years
and well that will suck...lol.

Just be yourself and naked. Explain in a casual, matter of fact way that being naked is not bad. Just another way to live and be comfortable. Over time also explain that not everyone shares your views and some people think its bad. He doesn't have to broadcast this information everywhere. After a while he'll be asking if he can be naked with mommy and daddy. Try AANR, Net Nude and ask the fabulous CheriDonna. She has written articles on many situations like this.

I have an eight year old, six year old and three year old. They barely even notice. Kids quickly adapt to the facxt theat you don't have clothes on. Since they are not really aware "sexually" yet, they register it but don't think about it anymore than that. My kids like to go naked too sometimes and there are occasions when I am naked and so are they, other times I am and they are not, or vice versa. IF you don't make a big deal of it neither will they.

We certainly wont make a big deal out of it because it isn't a big deal. Our concern is, how do we explain to a child his age it's ok to take you cloths off while we're in the back yard but it's not ok to do it other places?

How do you explain anything else ?
It's OK to eat chicken with your fingers, but not mashed potatoes, for instance.

I have visited several home where the parents - of kids from toddler to teenage - have peeked ahead to cue the kids to put clothes on, company was with them. These are non-nudist parents, unaware that I'm a nudist, just folks who are casual about clothing at home. No shock, surpise, scandal, just a homely routine. The kids will have NO trouble figuring it out.

Young kids are smarter than we may think they are. If you maintain a regular routine around him, he'll quickly figure out when he's supposed to keep his clothes on and take them off if he wants to be a young nudist. But the routine is the most important thing here!!

My wife and I have four kids ages 9-18 the youngest two were pretty much raised nudist while the older two were introdiced to it at a very young age. We ahd the same concerns as you at first and learned on the way. As to your question. How do you teach then the difference that it is Ok in some places and not others. Well like any thing there are always things that you do at certain times and places and nt in all. Because of his age just let him know that you will let him know when it is OK to be undressed and at the same time you will tell him when it is not. Make it simple and perhaps like a game so it will be fun when he can be also you have time before he starts school so you can teach him that being without clothes is just somthing that you do as a family and not something that needs to be talked about in school. ther is a good book out Called "Growing up with out Shame" I suggest you find it and get reading it is a wealth of information ot help you out.

Nudity with children

Yes, children are deffinetly not stupid & pick up on alot more then what we give them credit for!
Keep a routine & lead by example of what you would like to see from then, you would newed to sit down with him to verbalise what your expectations are too.
