What age is it inappropriate for father to be naked around their daughter?

Hello. I’m glad this is anonymous. Is it healthy for my daughter to see her father urinate? My daughter is now 5, at the time she saw her father’s penis, she was about 3. My family was extremely modest, so I never saw anything like that. But her father is definitely more uninhibited. He liked to walk around the house naked before we had her. Her father and I are not together, but I do everything I can to nurture their relationship. She told me lately that when she saw her Dad’s penis, she was a little uncomfortable. I don’t believed he touched her in an inappropriate way. What are your thoughts?

Its time to tell the father what she seen and explain he needs to cover up around her. My father never ever came out of his room without sweatpants on. He grew up in a modest home to.

Your daughter is 5? I still get dressed infront of my 5 year old. Im a stay at home mom that never gets alone time. So when i am out of the shower my boys r there.

I dont think its a big deal if the child is walking in on a parent changing.

Now if you or the father is naked 100% walking around the house. That is 100% inappropriate.

Also if its just oh well my kids in my bedroom and changing not a big deal.

Same for mothers around sons

I would say 2. Kids start to familiarize themselves with their bodies around that age. I don’t see why a father would feel comfortable whipping out his privates around his young daughter anyway. Are there no doors in the home? Is he disabled? That’s extremely disturbing

No not inappropriate but now that she’s not comfortable it needs to be brought to his attention and then if he continues then it would be

At her age, it’s highly inappropriate. Talk to him and tell him while she is there, more discretion is required, especially since she stated she was uncomfortable.

Some families are like that. I’m very good friends with a family where it’s just normal that everyone walks around naked. it’s your own personal preference if it makes her uncomfortable he should cover up but some families are OK with that

I still remember, I was like… 7? Maybe? And I saw my dad’s penis and it still scars me. :joy: We are a very open family, so it never occured to anyone. BUT if it made her uncomfortable, he should definitely cover up.

Daddys should not walk around naked - my opinion :roll_eyes:

Um. She can get taken from you for something like this. It needs to be addressed before she’s taken.

It’s not inappropriate until the child or the parent is uncomfortable in the situation. She is uncomfortable. So now is when the discussion should be had with her father about it. If she is comfortable with him let her do it, if not you do to.
