Tori Spelling Discusses Family Nudity

Tori Spelling Looks at the Subject of Family Nudity

We're excited to bring you a new post from mother and actress Tori Spelling! Every other week we're bringing you the best parenting and lifestyle advice from ediTORIal by Tori Spelling, which is Tori's daily blog about everything from food and fashion to parenting and relationships. This week, Tori takes on the subject of family nudity.

As I was changing the other evening, Liam shrieked, covered his eyes, and said:

"Oh no! I do not need to see that! Get that out of my face. That huge thing sitting on top of your legs. Your butt is ginormous."

Changing in front of my kids always seemed so natural and normal. After all they are just toddlers, and I did make them from this body. But, for the first time, I think I blushed and quickly covered up. Is this it? At 4 years old, is Liam now too old for me to be changing in front of him?


Do you change in front of your kids? What age do you think is appropriate and what's not?

I have never worried about being nude in front of my kids and they still don't care. My 9 year old daughter definitely doesn't want her brothers or father to see her naked, but she is comfortable with me. I have always wanted my children to feel totally comfortable with their bodies.

Solution is to ASK his permission before you share. You can't assume your kids agree w/ your vision.

Suggest you respect privacy boundaries asap. 4 is over-due. He is asking you for autonomy from the "Mommy" machine. Your marketing of kids is not giving 1st born his own identity. He is not your co-pilot.

I'm 27 years old, and my family has always been able to change in front of each other. Nobody is completely nude, but in our underwear. My brothers are 25 and 22. It's nothing to us. And it's a plus that they know how to loosen/tighten bra straps and check for a rash, and vice versa.

I change infront of my children. I don't think there's an "appropriate" age to stop. I think whenever you child is uncomfortable seeing you nude is when you stop.
