Is it okay for a father to walk around naked, only covering his genitals in front of his five-year-old daughter? Also, what about bathing with his five-year-old daughter?
No and No he should at least have boxers on
No and no! Not necessary!!
Covering up is not walking around naked
Giving child a bath is one thing… At 5 ur chold should be able to wash areas on there own… I get the hair needs to be checked… I love when my man baths the kids… It’s way quicker and less drama lol…
No but dirt is what you make it
No, too old for that now
Well is he naked or covered cause there is a difference
I at minimum have shorts on around our (only) daughter, and I’ve never bathed her.
Is this a serious question? NO
Walking around naked no. Helping her in the tub yeah I don’t see a problem with a dad checking on her or helping her wash out the soap in her hair but at 5 she should be able to use body wash and clean herself
No that’s disgusting
My husband walks around in just his boxers around our girls all the time and he never bathes with them but does wash my 5 year olds head (she washes herself). But otherwise no it’s not ok a guy to bathe with girls. If you know of someone who does this or walks around naked and is ok with it I would start asking alot of questions.
No my husband does not bath our kids he’s just not comfortable with it and he at least has shorts on my kids have seen him without a shirt
No. Not appropriate behavior at all.
I don’t see an issue with walking around in boxers…as for giving a bath it should be fine, what if its a single father with a daughter you people are to much to judge
I would say since you are asking you know it doesn’t feel right. And no it’s not appropriate. Even at a young age earlier than 5 years old they pay attention. They need to learn that the body parts are private. If he makes sure the daughter is bathe but not in the shower to me that’s more appropriate. Both being naked in the shower absolutely not I would not be okay with it at all
Ummm? It’s a dad and his daughter. It’s literally disgusting to sexualize that
All you moms that have son’s best not give them a bath cuz apparently its wrong…get over it really
Not for just hanging out. Underwear sure.
My husband is gone most of the week so it’s just me and my boy (about to be 4) if I need to shower he comes with me 95% because he wants to play in water and make potions. Idk how it will be a year from now, but for now it works and it keeps me from sticking my head out every 2 second to make sure everything is still OK.
Underwear, shirt and shorts bare minimum for everyone in the house.
So everyone is comfortable.
Not NO BUT HELL NO…even if it is child!!! No.
Am I the only one who read it as taking a bath WITH her? That shouldn’t even be a question. But no all across the board.
No no no no! I don’t even believe siblings of the opposite sex walk around naked. My mom would never even leave my sister and I alone with our dad brothers uncles etc.
If moms do it, then yes. Family nudity should not be made sexual
Walking around naked around his 5 year old daughter. Absolutely not. And covering as in naked and just hiding his crap? Or covering as in wearing a pair of boxers?
My husband walks around wearing boxers or shorts around our children. He also will occasionally supervise them for shower time and wash their hair for them. But you are making your questions seem predatory and I don’t know if that is your intent or not. But I would have a talk with him if I were you and set some ground rules that you are comfortable with.
My kid don’t even stay the night at her days, she’s 9
My choice, he respects it.
No and neither did I.
It says he’s covering himself my husband walks around in his underwear with our kids and I often will put our kids in the shower with him to same with me on days we have to be somewhere it’d often quicker to just have the shower with me or him.
So what do mean by him only covering his genitals??
So… you think your kid’s dad is a pedo
If your uncomfortable with it then talk about it with the father not a bunch of strangers.
That’s not normal at all !! Eww my daughter at 5 she was in school and she would definitely know what dad had down there that’s pretty disturbing… and no I never took baths with my son at that age … smh
Has he got underwear on or what lady or is he absolutely naked we’re he is covering his penis with his hands???
how is it wrong for a father to bathe with their kids but it’s normal for mothers? honest question, don’t attack me. i don’t agree with being completely nude around kids for no reason, that’s just… raises more questions than answers.
If he’s covering his genitals then he isn’t naked.
It sounds like the father is taking a shower WITH the daughter. Not just putting her in the shower. That’s not normal.
I as a mom at night walk around in my tank top and undies and my husband just in boxers at night but he dont wash our girls cuz 1st one is 14 so nope and 2nd is 4 and he never felt comfortable taking her a bath his choice
My daughters dad you to shower with her but he would wear swim shorts or boxers…was no harm
Depends. My boys are 5 and 10, both think nothing of talking to me when I’m in the shower or on the toilet. I tell them that mum needs privacy at these times, but actually don’t make a big deal of it. It’s not a sexual thing. Sadly we live in a world when something that may seem innocent, is not. At the very least a conversation is in order.
Hell no!!! My husband doesn’t even walk around naked in front of our boys. I wouldn’t walk around naked in front of them.
Naked no. Underwear ok
If you’re concerned enough to ask about it on a public forum, then you already know the answer…
Yeah, I think its all good.
I’ll say this, my step dad did this the entire time I was growing up and now I’m in therapy for it. If that’s not an answer then I don’t know what to tell you.
I dont think walking around naked is appropriate. By 5 I think it’s time to end bathing together too.
At 5 my boys still showered with me. Naked was never shameful here.
I hear all kinds of stories and sorry but some don’t sit well with me! When your child is an infant it’s one thing bc they have no idea you’re walking around naked . Once they start nursery school you shouldn’t be walking around naked… and no need for a father to be taking a bath with their daughter or a mother with their son ! Sorry but that’s just me!
This would not be happening in my house. Female or Male no difference. Clothing on parents and children should be in shower or bath tub on own and you supervise them or help them what they need or show them and tell them.
I would be asking why they are walking around the house like that and also why they are bathing there child like that.
she will remember…
I think shes saying he has underware on only because she said he only covers his genitals. So hes walking around in uis underwear . still a no tho
My husband has never been naked around our children, he’s just not comfortable with that.
But yes he helped with all the changing and baths because if I didn’t trust him To do that he would not be my husband or father of my kids!
Nope. And definitely not bathing with her.
It’s okay in our house up until about 5. Everyone’s different
Walking around, no. Bathing his child, yeah why would that be a problem?
No …i don’t even sleep with just underwear on or naked in concern that my 5yr old will come in at night
It’s a personal choice. Depends a lot on the kid. My oldest never did inappropriate stuff, like trying to grab things or ask awkward questions. Just sort of accepted things as they were. Of course now we try to avoid being naked in front of each other, but it happens sometimes. We aren’t shy and don’t shame nudity, but we also ask for privacy and set boundaries for everyone. It 100% depends on the kids and the parents. It should be a family choice.
Why is this a question?
Nudity does not equal ludity
I don’t really get what’s wrong with this. He isn’t walking around naked it says in the post his private area is covered. Doesn’t really seen any different than him walking around in swim trunks.
My almost 9 year old still hops in the tub with me sometimes. I wander around totally naked regularly. I don’t see nudity as a big deal.
What’s sad is I asked this questions about mom’s being naked in front of their kids, even older kids and apparently that was okay.
I dont think adults (any adults) should be naked around children, yours mine or otherwise.
How do you only cover the front ???
I used to send my kid & dad to shower together after a beach trip. That ended when dad came out mortified & tucking saying “she’s noticed”. Now because my kid sucks at showering (I’m sorry but most kids do & mine stinks) we do a re wipe down after she does her thing & also do her hair. But dad being “free” around my daughter ended when she was like 2-3yr & noticed. I also don’t walk around naked but the one bathroom problem has resulted in her seeing me but not dad. Dad will at least slip on boxers or wrap a towel if she needs to get in the bathroom.
No. Once the kids come, things gotta change.
If you think he’s a peddo then absolutely not.
Otherwise nudity shouldn’t be shamed.its natural and we are all the same. If you make a huge deal about it then are you the one with the problem? It’s their own family
I don’t see the issue.
Bathing, I don’t really get the issue. But walking around naked? No!
Hell no. We have 3 boys no girls and my husband won’t even let the boys see him in his boxers. Absolutely no
Yea um beening around kids naked is illegal look it up. I worry even more why your asking about him bathing her you already know your answer.
My husband has always worn shorts or underwear when showering or bathing with my girls. Even when they were babies he always covered himself up. They are 6 now and they don’t shower with him often but if they do he is completely covered
It is not ok. A t-shirt boxers ok. But naked. No. No bathing with your 5 year old. No!
I still take showers with my 3yr old son. Because its just easier. He has seen his father naked and is just curious when daddy pees lol. Otherwise Its as if he couldn’t care less.
Think about this…if your daughter goes to school and tells the teacher she sees her dad naked and also bathes with him, what do you think will happen? That should give you a good idea of whether or not it’s okay.
It’s not ok for mom’s or dad’s.
Both my husband and I stay clothed in front of our kids…they are 4 and 6. They very well what those body parts are but I don’t think its necessary to be naked in front of them.
My husband baths my 4 year old in the shower but he wears swim trunks and when he’s done washing her I get her out and get her dressed and then he showers. She takes showers with me still. It is so much help! She doesn’t like baths anymore and prefers the shower
Do you walk around naked in front of her?
Noo? How is this even a question
Have your kids seen you naked? Has this been going on all their life? As for the taking a shower there is nothing wrong it especially if he has always done it, unless you think somwthings going on
If his downstairs is covered what’s the issue? I hardly call being topless naked. My hubby just took his first bath with our 5yo since she was 2.5 the other day. She requested it and he put on swim trunks
Nope. My hubby loves to be naked, like strips his clothes off when he gets home. But he always always always leaves his boxers on. And the bath thing is a hard no. He will help with the hair but generally leaves everything for me
How is this even a question,especially when you yourself know that it is not ok.
I say you should not be naked around your kids
My husband would even wear shorts when they was very little taking baths with them . No way.
Omg PC police again. Don’t make things dirty when they aren’t. Of course you try and be discrete and respect privacy. But don’t make it weird
I cannot believe all you women saying dad shouldn’t be allowed to give their child a bath. What kind of men are you all married to? And why would you be with someone you don’t trust to bathe your child?
No. Our daughter was 1 and my husband wouldn’t even let her in the bathroom with him.
I dont see a issue with it.
Not walking around naked in from of his daughter… But bathing her??? That’s her dad…I feel like that’s ok
Hell No that’s what bedrooms are for close door privacy
Stop sexualized our bodies. My kids see me naked all the time. Dont make it weird.
I walk from the bathroom to my room occasionally and my kids know it’s completely normal. They also know who is supposed to see them naked and who isn’t. If he’s covering his penis, I don’t see an issue with it as long as you also teach your children about proper touch and who can and can’t see them naked.
You’d get a show at our house when we’re all trying to get showers done quickly, it’s like a revolving door
Are you looking to get him for this so you can build a case?? I gotta know cause that’s what it sounds like to me!!
Wow. Seriously? Why not? Unless your husbands a pedo then nothing wrong with it.Stop fuking sexualizing everything, weirdos.
My husband bathes with our girls with his boxers on. And walks around in them
Oh my gosh. I love where we are as a society. Do we all realize that dads don’t look at their children as sexual objects? Or as mother’s are we that unsure in the men we married to feel scared to let them give them a shower?
There comes a time where it becomes inappropriate. It has nothing to do with sexualising children. Where you as parents choose to draw the line 🤷🏾♀ is up to you. But factors such as the awareness and mental development of the child should definitely be considered.
Don’t sexualise it I have a feeling this is just for attention plus if you didn’t trust him why are you still around him with your 5 year old for Petes sake
Not in my opinoin . My daughter is told to leave room when he changes/ changing at age 2. And he tried to keep her clothed and gave me do the naked stuff for her . He handles our sons showers mostly…
