Should we avoid being naked in front of our children?

Rules of life
The sexual liberation of the 70s led to a change in behaviors related to modesty and nakedness. they admitted that naked walk in front of their children was no problem, even adding that it helped them better accept natural human body, not to be ashamed, and be free of taboos about sexuality. Today, child psychiatrists and psychologists agree that it is best to avoid being naked in the presence of your children and you need to preserve some modesty. How to explain this divergence of views?

The sixty-huitarde ideology has created a free educational philosophy of liberation of body and morals.




When nudity at home rhymes with freedom!

At this time, we think we must live with our body naturally. Because a healthy body has nothing to hide and not to bother with taboos which are unnecessary and retrograde. Some parents think that if their children see them naked, this will help them break free from the shackles of sexual repression, and they can live a fulfilling sexuality as adults. They think that when they are naked in front of their children, it is a desexualised nudity in some way, since they put themselves no sexual intent, and it has nothing to do with the exhibitionism.

But:
Understand the discomfort of children.

Yet the lack of modesty in the family is not quite trivial. Thus many testimonies teach us that children are often uncomfortable in the nakedness of their parents, but they don’t dare to speak. Parents must recognize this discomfort, understand and adapt their behavior according to the child’s reactions. Thus, while avoiding excessive prudishness, it is usually best not to being naked before your children, especially in the common areas of the house such as the living room or kitchen. Psychoanalysts give a theoretical explanation for this recommendation.




Show naked before the children: the point of view of psychoanalysis

Parents need to realize that when they are naked, even if they are put anything sexual, it is not the same for the child. It feels incestuous desires for the opposite sex parent. But these desires are imaginary. They participate in the psychic construction. This is what psychoanalysis calls the phase of the Oedipus complex.
Or, if the child is confronted directly with the sexuality of the parents or the reality of their genitals, it cannot safely be desired unconsciously with his parents: rather his unconscious thoughts confront directly to the real. Then He prefers put a lid on his desires, which cannot be developed. This can pose him problems in his adult sexuality. Thus, in children the nudity of Parents can create a psychic tension and the only way to appease this tension, will give his desire to repress it.
As an adult, he will tend to reproduce the same mode with the desired partners and suppress her desires.
Of course, parents are the sole judges of what is good for their child.
Do not hesitate to confront the views and asking other parents what attitude they adopted!
