Eight Things to Know About Nudity and Your Family

Children have a natural curiosity about nudity. Being naked around your children—whether occasionally or regularly—can teach them what a “normal” adult body looks like.

As a long time advocate for the values of family naturism, and having embraced those ideals when raising our own children, I think this article from Psychology Today goes a long way to help parents contextualize nudity within the context of a more global perspective.

  1. It would be interesting/helpful to ask the author some follow-up/clarifying questions.

    Your Medium post was good this week. It’s so good to read stories. 🙂 They level the playing field. Your admission was a surprise. I thought your home, with your children, was nudist.

    1. Thanks Clara.

      I would characterize our home as “naked friendly.” We have a hot tub, and my wife and I use it several times a week. Sometimes the (now adult) kids as well. As is often the case, I’m more likely to be naked at home than my wife, though we have a big private back yard and a wood-burning stove, so if she’s warm enough she has no issues with nudity at home. She would simply say it isn’t practical most of the time. I think that’s less about nudity, and more about my pragmatic wife. LOL


      1. I’m sorry. I meant that I had thought you had raised and lived with your children in that manner. Nevertheless, your Medium posts are quite good. Keep telling your stories. People love and some prefer stories. It might well win some folks over. 🙂


      2. I guess the part that’s missing is that we frequented nudist places while the kids were growing up, spending a good bit of each summer in France or Croatia, which was most definitely naturist. There’s another entire blog post about how our kids were very comfortable with naturism on vacation in Europe, but then would revert to their modest habits as soon as they walked in the door. Not sure when a textile family becomes a naturist family, (Maybe when they move to Florida! LOL) It’s a moving target, to be sure.
