At what age should we get our children to start covering themselves up in particular their private areas, and they're out in front of their parents?
This is an interesting question because there are different cultural values, where Muslims and others reside that have different levels of threshold. Generally speaking, once a child understands the concept of nakedness, and nudity as being something that is a source of shame, or something that should be covered up in front of others, you want to encourage that you don't want to lessen that inhibition and say, Oh, no, it's okay. But there are moments where you need to go into the bathroom, make sure they've cleaned behind their ears or something like that. You want to show them that they have that level of autonomy and decency that their body is there is theirs, irrespective of dad or
mom or whoever, that this is their personal private space, the moment they come to that cognitive awareness that there's a difference between what people should see and people shouldn't see. And even my parents shouldn't see that my brothers and sisters shouldn't see that, that that's a place you should honor and respect. So I'm not going to give you a defined age, but it is a certain point in time where you will see your son, your daughter will say don't come in Mom, don't come in dad, and then you know that this is you know, they're ready for that.
