I have a 13 year old son and a 15 year old daughter, They both get on like normal siblings and our family life is pretty normal. However, they do occasionally display behaviour which to me seems a little odd. They seem to have no problem with being seen naked by each other. Now please don't get me wrong, they are not walking around the house naked everyday, nor am I suggesting anything even remotely sexual going on. Its just every now and then they act in a way that surprises myself and their mother. I'll give a couple of examples of what I am trying to say. 1. About 2 weeks ago i had just washed towels and there were none in the bathroom and my daughter didn't realise, so after a shower she walked straight through the lounge room/kitchen past everyone in her birthday suit to the laundry to get a towel. 2. a couple of months ago we were camping and after a swim my wife was in the tent getting changed and my impatient son changed his underwear behind our 4wd but in full view of myself and my daughter. Firstly, do I even have an issue here? I have always tried to avoid teaching body shame, but certainly neither myself or my wife have never been so open with things infront of the kids. I am personally happy just to leave it alone as I don't see any harm being done and it happens at most maybe 2-3 times a year and only for a few seconds at a time. However, I am keen to get advice from other people on what they think of the situation and what if anything we should do or say.
