“Is what we are doing in regards to nudity inappropriate?”

When is nudity appropriate around the house with kids? At what age does this become a boundary issue? This week’s Tips on Teens looks at a question from a father regarding nudity in the household. Here’s the question:

“I was hoping to get some reassurance on our views on nudity around the house. My wife and I thinks it’s totally fine for our kids and us to be naked around the house from time to time but some of our extended family has been giving us a hard time about it. They think it’s inappropriate. I honestly believe it’s important that we as parents don’t create shame around our bodies and nudity. We have two children, one age 8 and the other 11. Is what we are doing in regards to nudity inappropriate?”
