My kids stripped down in our backyard this afternoon to play in the hose while I was finishing up cleaning the floors in the house. Honestly, I didn't know they were all fully naked (7 year old girl, 4 year old boy, and a 2 year old boy) but I wouldn't have thought it was a big deal anyway since we have big bushes on all sides and no one else was in their backyards at the time.
Anyway, neighbor lady came out and called me to the fence and started with 'I don't want to offend you but it's inappropriate for your children to be naked out here where everyone can see them. At least put on some bottoms'. I was kind of shocked so just said 'Okay' and figured we'd leave it at that. Then she goes off on how her kids don't want to come outside because of us and then says it's illegal and she's going to call the police and CPS if it continues. I just responded that she could call them if she liked because it wasn't illegal to be naked in your own backyard. She had a better case with me if she'd just been honest and said it makes them uncomfortable and not tried to force me to comply by making threats.
Anyway, I can't find anything anywhere talking about legality of being naked in the backyard, children especially. It looks like here in Texas it's legal unless it's in full view of public? I guess I just wanted to know for sure where I stand in case CPS comes knocking.
