My Son the Nudist

At 2 years old, is there really anything wrong with a child running around in his birthday suit? Ever since my son has been able to tear off the tabs of his diaper, he's liked to lounge free around our house. It isn't a daily occurrence and is getting more and more infrequent as he gets older, but I figure if he's happy and confident, why force him into a pair of sweats? As a mom, I don't see him basking in the freedom of not being clothed as any big deal but am surprised by how conservative other people are about it.

Since his streaking is limited to our apartment and only witnessed by our family and close friends, I doubt I'll take issue with it unless he's still roaming around in the buff as a teenager. Seventy-one percent of lilsugar readers say they dare to bare it all around their families. What's your opinion of naked children?
