When should a parent trade in their birthday suit for a bathing suit when taking a bath with their kids?
Here's what our friends at Babble have to say on the subject:
"Yesterday I explained why I climbed into a bathtub fully clothed with Vivi. What I didn’t explain was why I didn’t strip down to my birthday suit before climbing into the tub. In a comment left by NudeDude (the name says it all), he wondered why I even bothered with a swimsuit and didn’t just climb into the tub fully naked. He raises an interesting question that my wife and I have struggled with (and I use the word “struggled” liberally here) while raising both of our daughters. My wife and I have not always seen eye to eye on that question, but we have both taken our stances and we have supported each other in our respective decisions. And really what I mean by being supportive is that my wife puts up with my decision that my kids don’t get to see me naked. EVER. Every family seems to have a different approach to this little subject. As NudeDude put it:
Clothed? Bathing suit? What’s the point? Is there a problem with being nude with young kids? My wife and I take turns showering our daughter. It’s all nudity. I know that at some point we’ll have to stop it, and probably my wife can continue for longer than I should, but surely there’s an age where it’s OK to be nude with your child?
First off, it is all nudity and everybody approaches nudity differently….."

The actor obviously meant it as some sort of joke, but viewers were completely taken aback and appalled at his behavior, considering it came out of nowhere and didn't seem to have any sort of point, except maybe that men feel entitled to do whatever they want to women.
He even seemed to attempt to look under her skirt!
