Does nudity harm children?

Updated: Nov 7, 2020

Too many people seem to think nudity harms children in some way. After examining the evidence, I have come to a valid conclusion. This will be presented. Furthermore, there are many ways it can actually benefit them. With an open mind on what is presented, you will be shocked at the different perspective you will have after reviewing my analysis. Always remember that context is of the utmost importance. It doesn’t mean you must be nudists, but you can’t be paranoid and freak out if they inadvertently glance at you nude. What you must do is be proud of what you have and instill this into your children. Showing pride instead of shame will be one of the most valable lessons they can be taught. They will absolutely thank you for it later. As a bonus, it will be divulged how not only children are being harmed but also society as a entire cohesive unit. Unfortunately, women receive the worst of it through rape and other types of violence against them.


The very first article I researched, the title says it all, Nudity isn’t harmful to kids. In it, Dr. Reinisch answers a parent’s question on her concern about her 3-4-year-old kids seeing her with nothing on. Her direct answer to the parent was, “Nudity has not been found to be harmful to children – in fact, it is the norm in many cultures.” as she further reinerates to the parent, “As long as you are comfortable with them entering the bathroom while you are there, they are likely to feel equally comfortable with the situation.”
