Should I still let my ten year old daughter play naked and pee outside in the backyard?

I have a 10 year old daughter, and a four year old son. My daughter has a habit of playing outside naked (We have a tall privacy fence so we let her) sometimes my son will join in too. She’ll also use the bathroom outside instead of going inside. She’ll just walk over to a corner, spread her legs, and pee standing up, as if it were completly normal. She has been doing this eevr since she was six. One day she and some cousins were playing in the pool, when she had to go potty. My wife just told her to go in the grass so she wouldn’t track water through the house. It took a few minutes to explain to her that it was ok to go outside on certain occasions. She was wearing a one-piece suit, so she had to take it off and pee naked. She loved it. She just thought it was the most amazing thing in the world lol. Soon after that, she started to quit wearing bathing suits when swimming. Eventually, she quit wearing any clothes at all while going outside. And she would pee outside all the time. Sometimes she goes and walks out into the backyard just for the sole reason of peeing. She literally became a full time nudist. Every day when she came home from school, the first thing she would do when she walked in the door was to strip all her clothes off. She would sleep naked, and not wear anything until school the next day. On weekends, she sometimes might not wear anything for two days! At first, her friends or cousins would also play naked with her. But as she got older, we told her it was not ok anymore. Every once in awhile though she’ll still get naked with her two closest cousins. Now today she is ten, and still greatly interested in being naked and peeing in the backyard. Its pretty much the only place now, other than her bed, where we allow her to remain naked. She hasn’t started puberty yet, but we are considering having her stop getting naked when that happens. What do you think?

by: Tony

Nudity is a life style, some people feel comfortable with that. We shouldn’t be ashamed of our bodies.

Let your daughter live the way she likes, nothing wrong with that. We don’t have the right to force our kids to make them the way we like. It is their live not ours.

She sounds like a very confident and well adjusted little girl. Let her enjoy her innocence in the privacy of your own home. You say you have a privacy fence – nobody is going to see her so it’s no big deal. As for the peeing in the yard, I don’t really see a big deal with that either as long as she just makes sure she keeps herself clean.

Running around with no clothes on in her own yard where she can’t be seen is just harmless childish fun. Let her enjoy her innocence – it will no doubt disappear soon enough.

I think you should let her be naked. It might give her confidence issues if you say something like there is some thing wrong with her. I am sure she will grow out of peeing outside.

As long as she, and everyone else in your house, are okay with it. But make sure she gets her parts clean after peeing so she doesn’t get a UTI


Nov 18, 2012 I am a nudest at heart
by: Anonymous

As I grew up I thought that I was a child predator. I love to see children playing naked as well as adults. i stay away from any and all that had children in the family for I was worry that I would show myself as a weird guy look at the children nude.

In my later life i know I am not a child predator. I just like to see happy children playing. It does not matter if they have clothes on or not. I also admire the freedom the child has at these times.

I visited a nudest resort for adult only. I talk openly to some of the couples there about my fears. they did not laugh at me but instead invited me to they’re home to meet the children.

Which I did and found that I was more open and relaxes in the home. even with the children running around nude. I did not worry about my on nudity. I enjoy the moment for what it was people having fun with no worries.

One more fact I have found out. When you have no clothes on you will always see the truth in what others tell you.

No lies, only trust when you bear it all and look some one,(even a child) in the eye and just talk.

If she enjoys it then all you need to do is teach her that it is not always ok to be nude.


Sep 24, 2012 Free to be unclothed and relieved
by: Anonymous

Let the girl enjoy being clothing-free! As any member of a clothing-optional resort or club could tell you, growing up with parents who have the clothing-optional approach will not produce a “freak” child, but rather a well adjusted and sexually grounded one, a child who will accept others clothed or unclothed as friends.

The sight of others’ bodies will not cause them harm, but will be accepted as a natural state the child has grown up with. The important thing here is either to share the activity with her, or at the very least to allow her to continue, but with a certain knowledge that such activity and openness is not allowed throughout the outside world.

It is, rather, something reserved for special places, such as your private back yard. Good luck with all of this. Please let us know how things develop, if you would!


Aug 10, 2012 Not really
by: Anonymous

I don’t think you should. Haven’t you ever seen what happens when people pee in the woods they get bugs and stuff inside their insides. I’m not saying to stop letting her but she should put clothes on for bug reasons…….. sorry for my grammar. :-P


Jun 04, 2012 No big deal
by: Anonymous

My 8 year old was naked in the back yard just today. Glad to see she is not the only girl who likes to pee standing up. :-) We have no fence but have no neighbors close by so I’ve always let her go naked if she wants, which she does on warm days. She will be self conscious about her body soon enough and I want her to enjoy the freedom while she can.

Even if someone does see her I really don’t see the big deal. She has not started developing breasts yet so all they would really see would be her vulva. Since she’s so young I just don’t see that as being a big deal.

Let your daughter enjoy her naked self as long as she wants!

To the mother of the 10 year old daughter under scrutiny.
Children have to be taught to be dignified members of society. For the child to urinate in the backyard is therefore not a good idea. This is what animals do. Your child is not an animal, despite what some people say. Also, for hygiene reasons also it is not sensible. She will urinate outside at your home, then she is likely to do it at someone else’s home also. This will give the family also a bad reputations. As well other children are bound to notice these strange goings on goings on and the child could well an easy target because of her lack of inhibitions for child molesters of any age. So teach this precious child proper toilet manners.


May 19, 2012 can i do it also…..
by: Anonymous

why would you make her stop something you let her do for so long already that she so dearly enjoy’s doing, just because she is getting older ? puberty will start to cover her up some and you said your fences do quite well. so i say let her and her friends and cousins enjoy this special time they have in life to the fullest in the nude, in and outdoors . mine prefers to pee sitting in the grass, go figure. no harm being done so dont make them stop.

If you have a privicy fence then I don’t see why not, although you might want to tell her that she should pee inside from now on but just being nude outside, as I said why not!!
