May 15, 2013 – When Is The Right Age For Mothers To Stop Dressing In front Of Male Kids?

Hey mummy I see your bum bum… This is the statement that started it all with my 5 year-old son.

Anytime he sees me dressing up, he can’t but comment on what am wearing.

My husband on the other hand doesn’t like this idea. He kinda act jealous anytime that happens.

Please Naijagists help me share this with your readers..

When is the right time to stop dressing in front of my male kids?

Question from a liberal reader.

    I have the same challenge with my wife that sleeps stark naked in presence of our 7yrs old boy. I cautioned her severally but she says ‘he’s still a kid’. I think at age 4, a mum shd stop dressing or standing naked in presence of their male kids.

    Ur correct once ur child is more dan 1 yr u stopped dressing in front of him or her expecially d boys bcos i believe there is no small kids as far as dis generation is concern. bcos u will see 1 yr old boi will tell u mum see ur breast so it is nt wise for mum or dad to be naked in front of their kids.,

    Mothers should stop it when kids start making comments on what they are seeing.

    My Sister gave birth with no much labour, happened within five mins. Glory be to God, what am saying is that immediately she gave birth, the baby is just looking at the lantern someone was carrying up and down. But i thought after 7days in those days that a baby gradually open it eyes.

    Anythin they sees even they can’t talk, its stack to their brain and to their mind, if you a parent that romance in present of a baby, when time comes that he’ll be going to mate, what it has seen will be its attitude. AGREED! 1yr.

    Since the day Adam and Eve disobeyed God they knew they were naked and they sourced for means to cover their nakedness. We should keep our privacy out of reach by unwanted people.

    I’ll say between the age of 3-4 will be ideal. Once a child starts to talk…problem starts especially, the intelligent ones. Do not be surprise if the child start to tell how her/his mum/dad’s bum or breast looks like in creche/pre-school. Enlighten your kids to always knock at your bedroom door and wait for an answer before they bulge in.

    I dnt agree at all d moment u start hiding ur nakedness frm ur little boy d moment he wants to kn wat is under d dress dat mum keeps hiding.children are innocent minded dnt put meaning to every little thing dey do cos if u do u will b corruptin dat child.

    I am a mother of 3, I dress in the presence of my kids. I tell them things they need to know as they grow. I encourage them to stay wen I dress and undress but I don’t go stack naked o. I tell them it is only their mums breast that they permitted to see but wen someone else Mum want to dress or undress, they should leave at once. I told their body is not supposed to be touched by anyone except their father or I bathing them. And I encouraged them to tell me anything they feel at a particular time no matter how bad. They are doing well.

    As parent we nid to let dem knw wat privacy/nakedness is all abt.@ age 1-2 wen d child says mum “i can c ur bombom n breast”u tell dem close ur eyes.funny right
    @ age 2-4 u tell dem wen dey look at ur nakedness,u r lookin at me right,dont worry,wen u r dressin i will look at u also.such child wuld try to avoid u 4rm looking nd wld cover up sayin “mum/dad dnt look ta me wen dressing ooo.funny.
    Bt dat is d fact abt upbringing ur children
    Wen der c such outside as dey grow,dey wil lower dey gaze bcos d infact upbring sticks.nd elp dem knw abt privacy nd kippin demselfs 4rm opposite sex wu might lure dem.
