whatever the opposite to a 'naked house' is, i grew up in it!
my house and how i raise my kid is completely different though.
my son is 9, will still hop in the shower with me and it doesn't bother either of us. when he wants privacy he asks for (and gets) it.
hubby walks around naked in the middle of the night, i walk around naked during the day.
guess i've broken the generational chain of being prim and proper, but i don't want my kids to grow up thinking there is anything wrong, bad, secretive or shameful about their bodies.

DF showers with Jasper and wears trunks because Jasper started getting a bit 'grabby' when he was maybe 1 year old, Jasper's now 3 but I think wearing trunks to shower with Jasper is a habit now and DF doesn't feel comfortable, so whatever thats fine for him.
I've not had that problem - I guess with a lack of anything to grab! (except when I was still breast feeding if I bent forward or picked Jasper up in the shower sometimes he'd sneakily latch on!!!!) so I shower nude with Jasper.
I have no set age in mind - I imagine probably school age or there abouts. Whenever one of us gets uncomfortable.

I've never bathed with DS (2) ever. DH has a couple of times before he was 1 but DS didn't seem too keen TBH. DH and I don't walk around naked in front of each other though!!!!

We are a naked house here too! I'm not planning on stopping it any time soon, I'm happy to see my boys and girls naked and vice versa.
My kids all bathe together too, the boys and girls

I'm not worried in the least about it all, but I was a bit annoyed a few months back when all 3 of my boys came into the shower and started pointing at me and laughing!! (7,5 and 2) Thanks for the 'boost' to the self esteem boys!!
If they are too silly about things when I am showering or changing I will ask them to leave, most of the time they are fine though.

We have an open door policy here. I'm leaving it up to the kids to decide.
DS chooses not to shower with me because my big preg belly takes up too much room but will happily jump in with his dad or with DD.
I get dressed in front of kids so does their dad. No big deal here.

DD is 6.5 and I don't bathe with her because it'd be a PITA. I'm still nude around her often though - and will continue to be until she reacts negatively to it.

No age until she feels she wants privacy I don't think it would ever bother me
Me and She - 4

I don't shower with them if I can help it! I have no problem with my DD's seeing me naked (rudie nudie as they call it ) but I value my shower time and am very selfish about it lol, it's the one time of day I get to myself before bed.

Dd showers with us both atm but she is only 2.5. I'll continue until she says she doesn't want to and at the moment she loves showering with us so she can have at least 3 showers a day lol
