I can walk around my house as nude as can be w/o feeling like my children are being hurt by my nudity and my dh can do the same. If anything, I think my children benefit from it. There is no shame of their bodies. There shouldn't be. Nudity is not dirty and it is not sexual...unless the intent is to be dirty and sexual, and I think that my children are very aware of the differences.
I showered with my father as a child and never saw anything wrong with it. When I was flashed as a child, I took down the licence plate number of the car that the man drove off in and called the police. It's certainly not difficult to teach a child the difference between what's right and what's wrong. I have no problem with you doing things your way, however you feel comfortable doing them, but I feel like you are telling us that we are wrong, and shameful, for feeling comfortable in our skin.
