Our house

I've always been very casual about nudity, but my husband has always been very conservative about it. As my husband never spent as much time with our kids, the kids seem to have inherited my openness...

I have to agree, I think that wearing a bra solely because it's the social norm is ridiculous, especially at that age. Yes, maybe an undershirt, sport top or something underneath, but I don't think...

Daughter sunbathing topless

This past summer our daughter who is now 16 has been sunbathing topless in our backyard. She claims to be doing this for a uniform tan and since we have considerable privacy in the yard I've allowed...

Easier to pee in pool

A year or two ago my teenage daughter told that she as well as her friends pee in pools. This rather shocked me as it's not something I ever recall doing. Since I've kept a bit of a watch on friends...

Whether you encourage it or not, whether he learned it as a toddler or not, when he hits the locker rooms with school mates he'll learn to pee in the showers, whether they're on or not!
