i agree. i accidentally interrupted a wedding in the woods going on my morning walk. i didn't know there was going to be a wedding. SO i just snuck by as best I could hoping not to interrupt...but I did watch as i passed, because weddings are so nice.

A lot of those people didn't plan on being on the beach and walking their nakee boy around a wedding. It just happened.

oh yeah and for the record my little guy (15 months) is nakey everywhere. he's nakey right now. and he was before when i was out pruning the hedges in my front yard.

Seems silly to me actually to even use that type of reasoning.
It's not reason to allow children to go naked, it's the reason why the possiblity of a sexual predator is not a good enough excuse for some to stop their children from going naked at the beach.

Count me with those who don't really care but probably wouldn't let my own kid do it because of practical issues (sand, sunburn).

I would not let my own 5yo be naked in public, though. For me I think the line is at about 3/4. I can see changing this standard if we lived in a different country.
