How do your children react when you decide to be naked in the home, once they have already grown accustomed to clothing?

My oldest is now seven. He has always seen us naked, we even revolve in and out of the shower still. Yet any time we are naked, for any other purpose than changing or showering, he starts asking questions. " Why's everybody naked?" Not in an uncomfortable way, but in a 'I don't get it' kind of way. And forget it if he's ready to hear about the work with clothesfree.com. All I need is his candid little mouth, and unknowing little brain, tell his teacher that his mom is on the internet naked. I have a real big feeling CPS would be hear in the shake of a cats tail!

Even better...I let him watch us..(Marshall & myself) on the most recent episode of ClothesFree-TV, now he's dying to go to a resort, and desperatly wants to be on the show! Do I allow this? Will he regret it later if he doesn't fully concept the circumstances? Would I allow a tatoo if he felt this strongly...of course not! Any ideas...anyone?

I'm more worried about someone getting their "chub" on in generall...pardon the phrase. The last thing I want to do is make clothesfree a child p*** site---fears I can't help but think about

its a sad reality but as nudists we have to realize theres a whole world that really does not understand our world and we have to protect ourselves by not letting them have anything they can use against us. especially the media, they're rabid sharks

You make valid points. We may use kids in the backround, but we'll limit close camera exposure to the 18 and overs. He'll live. He too is back and forth on a daily basis about clothes to naked, he can't decide what feels right. I wonder if he even knows he's having an inner struggle?

His biggest struggle seems to be , when he's undressed, he can't help but touch it, constantly, or even hold it...not a guy, this one's wierd for me
As he gets older and spends more time nude and see you both living nude regularly, he will grow to be jsut like you and love nudism.

But, but, but, I still don't understand. Does it have any "sensation" when their that young? Or is it like the pacifier complex from the toddler years? Just something to feel secure about?
He is at the age where it will have a mind of its own. Then when in school it happens and the teach then ask you go go do the match problem on the board. That is when I said, i forgot my homework. LOL. In my opinion if a child grows up in a nudist household, they will automatically learn to control it like all nudists, especially as they grow up.

yes it probably feels good, im thinking not THAT good though, and im sure it is security.
also, that thing is really in the way and sometimes its easier to wear something to hold it, kind like you and a bra

So why don't females do this? Perhaps some do? is it mostly because, it's "out" and not "in", for a boy? Just trying to figure out the best way to dicourage "touching", without turning into some big issue. Should I drop this one? No, I feel it to be unsanitary, all things considered. Whats the best way to approach this? I don't want him to think he should hide, and touch either. this to sends the wrong message.

Appears that 3 distinctly dissimilar threads have evolved here; 1 regarding maintaining a N&N environment within one's family, the 2nd regarding photographing family N&N activities, and the 3rd being the physiological development of pre-/pubescent males.

Item #1 - It's all about balancing leadership by example, everything in moderation & everything in its proper place & time. Given the current DHS witch-hunt for the pedos, how one elects to explain it all to the little ones in a manner that doesn't elicit undue public attention is challenging for todays' parents at best. Best advice I can offer is, don't push. If the young'ins appear uncomfortable or can't seem to get their heads around the sanctity of of family privacy, then back way off & bide your time. Ample opportunities for you & yours to express affinity for the lifestyle should present themselves when the youngin's are not present.

Item #2 - It's not about taking photos, it's more about photographic perspectives, context & who/how you elect to share those moments. When in doubt, tis best to err upon the side of caution. Don't need some wanna-be do-gooder who doesn't have a clue to be stickin' their nose into an innocuous situation tryin to extrapolate it into something which it most certainly is not. Guess perception is everything.

Item #3 - Raising girls & grandsons I'll offer this; girls are "innies" & boys are "outies." Profound huh? Fact of the matter is, although equally sensitive, girls are shielded for the most part whereas boys are exposed to every imaginable stimuli by either pressure or friction.

This ain't rocket science here folks. it's growin pains, plain & simple. Instruct the lads to minimize manual contact in social settings & to reserve "kickin out the jams" for private time in their bedrooms or baths.

As parents, we're always having to assist our offspring in being able to discriminate between which activities are acceptable at which times & settings. This is no different.
