Parents Tips on Child Nudity Lisa Masterson: We’re back with our doctors another motherhood survival club with neurologist Dr. Jennifer Berman and Leah Remini one of the host of the new daytime talk show The Talk and so we’re going to talk today about nudity no, no. what age is too old for your little ones to be running around without any clothes on. Dr. Jennifer Berman: Out five, kindergarten age is when I think they start an understanding that we cover ourselves up that their privates and that we don’t expose them in public. What -- do I walk around naked, yes? Do they? No. and that’s again you know I think that it’s individually defined in our homes but what we need to respect is in public, they never is in public, they never lay around in the beaches naked. And never you know run around you know in public places or in the park and the sprinklers naked because I wanted to be respectful with other people because you don’t know. Lisa Masterson: We have our motivated mamas here back with us as well let’s hear from Ana, what do you think? Ana: I don’t have a problem with nudity at all but you know kids like you said out in public on the beach it is just the creepy people around and you never know who’s looking, who’s going to take a picture, who’s going to post it up on the internet. That’s what's like oh. Lisa Masterson: What do you think? Leah Remini: I mean I don’t -- my daughter loves to be naked, she’s like running around the house she’s naked you know all the time. but I don’t like her being naked in front of people and I don’t want her to be naked like on the beach like you know a lot of kids you see them in their diapers and no shirt. Not because I'm thinking anything but I just don’t, it’s like you said it’s just a different time now and I don’t know. Lisa Masterson: So you think it’s more about their safety and about you know just -- Dr. Jennifer Berman: Safety and also respect for other people. Leah Remini: They might not like it, they might be offended by it whatever. Lisa Masterson: But you don’t want them to be ashamed of their body. Leah Remini: I don’t want her to be ashamed of her body but I tell her you know not everybody needs to see your cupcake. It’s against the law and you can get a ticket. You know I lie to my kids I lie to her about everything because that’s the only way sometimes because it’s always like why, so I'm like you're going to get a ticket that’s why. Lisa Masterson: Typically it’s around three to five when they start to know the differences and especially want to be careful with different sexes so you know that daughters and their dads. Leah Remini: I never want to see a little boy running around ever like I never want to see them but maybe because I have a little girl but you know I never want to see that. Lisa Masterson: Yeah, but we all agree we want them to feel confident in their body. High self esteem is so important. Dr. Jennifer Berman: With or without clothes on. Leah Remini: I agree with you. Lisa Masterson: So thank you Dr. Berman and Leah for being here. And to thank my motivated mamas I'm going to give you each an HP G42-240 notebook PC.
