So often we read stories featuring adults who say, in relation to nudity -in or out off a naturist context- ‘but my child might see this!’

Let’s be honest : children aren’t traumatised by simple nudity.

They may be taught to be ‘traumatised’ by it, but that’s down to you, the adult failing in your parenting skills.

There is not a shred of evidence that a naturist environment can or will ‘traumatise’ your child. Neither will routine nudity in the home. Their eyes do not need to be shielded from it. They will grow up as balanced individuals fully aware of the human body.

Granted, I accept there are scenarios where nudity and violence can be put together for maximum televisual effect and these may have to be shielded from the eyes of innocents. Ever increasing incidents of ‘pushing the envelope’ take place in television where more extreme aspects of sex are graphically depicted. Think of the hugely popular ‘Game of Thrones’ TV show, which depicts rape and anal sex as the preferred option, along with oral sex. No, your child does not need to see that. A documentary from a naturist resort? They won’t be harmed by it

By contrast, what will traumatise your child, from television in particular, is violence. Routine violence from the news to dramas to cartoons. It normalises violence in police dramas, films, soap operas  and in society at large.
