I have a 2 Children, a 5 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. Before we had children, my wife and I always enjoyed going around the house nude. I'm sure you Mom's and Dad's out there know that with little ones, there really is no such thing as privacy. The question to all you parents out there is: Is it ok for to be nude around the kids just to be comfortable? On one hand, I want the kids to learn that there is no shame in the human body and that if they are taught this early, then they wont see nudity as a big deal in this sexually repressed country. At the same time, I have heard of some issues developing later in life, especially when puberty rolls around. Mom's and Dad's input would be appreciated.

Well for one, accidental nudity in the family is a given, it happens. If your of the nudest persuasion, it is a cultural thing.
Usually you will start getting the hints when they start noticing the differences and start commenting, that's a pretty good sigh you may want to curtail the activity.But if the entire family is comfortable, it is certainly your business, although at some point I think it is going to get pretty uncomfortable.I think it is important to listen to your kids, their going to let you know what they think!
