My child’s preference for sleeping naked is causing family tension
Q: I have a four-year-old who loves to be naked. I’m glad that she’s comfortable with her body, and I’m okay with her being without clothes at home, as long as it’s within certain boundaries. Over the past month or so, she has started to keep clothes on more during the day, but she still prefers to sleep in the buff. My parents, who live three hours away and have started to stay with us one weekend every month, are clearly freaked out by this. Because my parents are immediate family members, at first I thought the “house guest rule” didn’t necessarily apply, but they are clearly upset when she wants to be naked. I even overheard my father telling her that “good girls wear clothes” (which turned my stomach). I’m willing to keep clothes on her during the daytime of their visits, but for bedtime I feel as if there’s no truly good reason why she should have to wear pajamas. Am I being too freewheeling with my daughter’s nudity
