    Wouldn't bother me at all. However opening someone's door without knocking would!

    Let me get this straight. You were upset your MIL was naked in her own room in her house?



    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    She obviously didn't mean to walk in on her MIL. Accidents happen.

    If she's uncomfortable with nudity which is fine. She's already said she over reacted somewhat so I don't think it's necessary to carry on.

    She stressed and tired, things that exacerbate emotions.

    No that's not an issue at all! What I had a problem with was that she let him go in there when she half naked instead of just shutting the door so he couldn't get in. Im not MIL bashing & I fully respect that fact that we are staying in HER house, I just found it quite confronting that she would let him in whilst undressing. As I said, it made me a tad uncomfortable & was reaching out to see what others thought because I didn't want to make an issue out of something that perhaps wasn't as weird as I thought.

    I think she just wanted some advice on what to do in the situation, not to be judged.

    I was just checking as I was confused to the problem.

    My kids also didn't understand closed doors and what they mean. So I would work on the kid rather than the MIL.

    Maybe just sit down with her and tell her how you feel about it? What's the worse that could happen?

    Maybe suggest since DS doesn't understand closed doors that they might need to get a lock on the door so he doesn't walk in on her changing in the future?

    I share a house with my parents and don't mind my girls seeing them naked. Good thing as its nearly impossible! Attached is a photo of my poor mum in the shower . But yours is short term. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1435561030.242448.jpg

    I'm OK with nudity when it's natural (like getting dressed in your room) and I actually think kids seeing 'normal' bodies and especially old people creates a better sense of 'normal' body types. In saying that, your MIL might look like a FHM model! I'd just apologise for walking in unannounced and leave it at that. I think the child would be more confused as to "why on earth did she shut me out?" and not give two hoots about whether she had a top on.
