A year from now I may not be doing it any longer. Nancy Friedman, a New York City mom of two middle schoolers, said while every child is different, most kids make it clear when their mom or dad's nudity no longer works for them. Buzz Bishop, a father of two boys in Calgary, wrote a blog post of his own in part as a response to all the outrage. Should your kids see you naked? Amanda Rodriguez, a mom of three boys in Frederick, Maryland, said she reached a point with each of her sons, usually no later than age 5, when she thought it was no longer OK to be nude around them.
I don't want them to think there is anything wrong with my body or theirs.
My kids certainly didn't. Do you think it's OK to be naked in front of your kids? But I don't cover up around my daughters, 7 and 8, when I'm getting dressed or in the bathroom, either. As children age, they certainly develop their own sense of modesty around others, said Micky Morrison, a mom of two in Islamorada, Florida, and founder of BabyWeightTV. By then, they may be showering by themselves dare to hope? I couldn't find many studies when I searched for them, and those I found had conflicting findings.
