I definately agree with this article. The benefits of being body-positive and of naturism are huge even for children.

 It's just not always easy to raise kids in these conditions. What if a friends of theirs  asks about it? What if people get suspicious of abuse from your end?

Nudity is natural for children, but parents can poison their minds.

Great words!

I think it is very healthy for children and adolescents to grow up in a naturist environment surrounded by more naked people their age.  When I go to the naturist campsites in France, I envy the naturalness that groups of mixed adolescents treat each other in the campsites ... groups of 10 to 20 people, boys and girls ... they treat each other and live summer experiences with total naturalness in the nude ...  I believe that nobody has such healthy and natural experiences from 12 to 20 years old ... I mean textile nobody.  Textiles live under an unnatural and censorious dictatorship of the nude, it is not healthy and it is not natural.

I agree. Nudity is quite natural and innocent but then parents or even just society in general ruins it by associating nudity with sex which should be kept private.

It's "society" more then parents.  Society is active in instilling boy shame while at the same time sexualizing everything under the sun.  What's bad is parents so complacent they just go with the flow like sheep  :justaminute
I LOVE to be naked !

Unfortunately now those parents were the kids who had body shame instilled on them by their parents. So we’re all sheep. 🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑

It's a very unfortunate cycle

My point was society is the bigger problem, parents the lesser problem..  I became an "out" nudist at 15 and the full support of my parents so no we are NOT all sheep

I think everybody is truly born a nudist! It is society that creates the concept of “nude=sex” and it’s horrible this has happened. Raising children as nudist allows them to be more open and realize that it’s normal to be nude. This would drastically stop sex abuse and all other related crimes. I think it’s one of the safest things we can do for our children!

Imagine two young boys.  One has visited a nudist club many times with his family, the other may have only rarely seen a parent unclothed, and they may have seemed embarrassed when that happened.

The non-nudist boy says to his friend, "Look what I've found!" as he shows the nudist kid a copy of Playboy or some similar magazine, which he found somewhere.

As they look at the pictures of scantily clothed, erotically posed women, the boy who has seen hundreds of people of all ages and body types, will probably think,  "I've seen lots of naked people before.  Why does he want to sneak looks at this?"  He might also think, "This isn't even what most people look like."

Growing up without shame




Puberty can be a very difficult time for adolescents;  their bodies are growing rapidly, their genitals are changing, body hair is developing.  Some kids feel clumsy.  Many are embarrassed by the changes that are taking place.  They can become VERY body-conscious.  At that time, a wise parent will try to keep lines of honest communication open but still give them privacy and time to be alone in their room or with their friends.  Most adolescents would rather be ANYWHERE except where their parents are.

All these things happen to nudist kids, tooThe one big difference for kids who were lucky enough to grow up in a nudist environment is that those kids have literally seen those changes take place, as their older friends and/or siblings went through that difficult time.  Because of that experience, they are better prepared for it themselves.

Safety

We read in the papers almost daily of some teacher, youth leader, church official or some other trusted individual who took advantage of a child in a sexual way.  With hundreds of nudist clubs in North America, that problem almost never takes place at our facilities.

A family which is open enough to have experienced nudism, just like a healthy non-nudist family, is also open enough to have discussed sex abuse with their children.  These children know that they can tell their parents immediately if they ever suspect that something is wrong.
We have been told by authorities that the reason nudist clubs have a very low incidence of sex offenders is that we have the reputation of prosecuting those individuals, while until recent years, many other organizations have "swept those problems under a rug", more concerned with their public image than with the safety of the people they should have been protecting.

Historically, sex abusers have felt much safer committing their misdeeds within organizations which have tried to cover up their problems with molesters.

You may find it encouraging to know that Bare Buns, and many other nudist clubs, have a very good relationship with law enforcement agencies.  Some of their officers are members of our club.  You can be certain that if we were doing anything illegal or immoral, they wouldn't join.  Instead, they would very quickly close us down!

Another fact to ponder:  Almost all sex offenders are males.  At a nudist club, it would be very easy to tell if a man were to become sexually excited.

Some other interesting facts




Surveys show that overall, adults who were reared as nudists think of their childhoods as having been stable.  They also find that nudists tend to be very slightly better educated than their non-nudist peers.

We don't present this information in an attempt to try to make ourselves appear to be "better" than our non-nudist friends;  instead, this information could explain some other interesting observations about nudists' lives:

The divorce rate is lower among nudist families, and their children tend to make better grades than similar children in non-nudist families.  We don't think that this is BECAUSE the families are nudists;  it's more likely that the marriages are more stable AND their kids make good grades AND the families are nudists because the family members  tend to communicate a little more openly with each other in their daily lives.
Learning to accept and respect all bodies

In spite of what Madison Avenue would have us think, human bodies really do come in all sizes, shapes, and conditions.  Few are "beautiful" using Hollywood's standards.  We think it's helpful for kids to learn this early on;  you may be aware that in those parts of the world where nudity is acceptable at places like the beach and public saunas, there is a much lower rate of eating disorders and suicides among youth.

In those cultures, where kids see all types and ages unclothed, they learn acceptance of the maturing and aging processes;  they don't think they have to have face lifts, boob jobs and collagen injections to become socially acceptable;  they don't grow up thinking "You are what you wear".

They've probably never had a case of a kid being killed for his tennis shoes or his Eddie Bauer jacket!

We think that when Americans learn to accept the body as natural and wholesome, many of our social problems which stem from body acceptance will decline.
