I am a single mum with 2 boys 8 and 10 years old
At ththe moment, they see me naked frequently in the shower or getting ready for work etc.
I am wondering what age this becomes inappropriate
Thoughts please

Good for you, I think it's good for children, boys and girls to see their parents naked as a normal thing. They need to get an idea of what regular people look like before they are emerged in the world of plastic celebrity bodies, airbrushing and porn. I would imagine they will get a bit more prudish at secondary school which is perfectly natural.

The human body is completely normal. I don't hide and neither does my DH. But we are only really naked for very brief periods each day. We don't wonder about starkers.
I imagine when they are teenagers they will tell you to put it away. It is certainly good for boys to see women naked who are not porn stars or Kim k.

Thanks - makes me feel better
Should I attempt to cover up or wait til kids protest ?

Wait until they protest.

(But if it's essentially only in your own bedroom and bathroom, perhaps not even then).

Our kids walk in on us showering and getting dressed all the time. We don't discourage it and it will come to an end when they stop doing it.

Good for you, We constantly walk around naked in front of DD, always have done & probably always will. As above, its natural, plus she learns that magazine images are just that. Images not based in reality. She is now 14 & hasn't complained yet

I think that's absolutely fine. It becomes inappropriate as soon as you or your sons find it uncomfortable - not before, not after.
