Hello friends! I will try to keep this short, as I’m really just looking for advice. But maybe context will help.
We try to be a very open and encouraging family. My hubby and I don’t want to squash our preteen son and teenage daughter. We want them to be free to be who they are, as long as it doesn’t harm others.
That’s why, after many conversations just the two of us and family meetings, we embraced our dear son’s desire to try out naturalism, around the house, when appropriate, and with many guidelines for privacy. The rest of us have participated at times and, in general, it has continued to foster our open, encouraging home.
Now both kids occasionally get new ideas and questions. What is a reasonable line to draw? Should we let our culture decide who our kids grow up to be at all? We try very hard to help them determine when something is private and when it is public.
Any advice is welcome!
