The age old question of how old is too old to allow your kids to see you naked has been raised once again on Dublin Talks 98FM. 


Bringing the public's attention to a study released by LA-based researcher Dr Stephanie Mihalas, who said the cut off should be six-years-old, they asked listeners what they thought. 


According to Dr Mihalas, a child and school psychologist located in Los Angeles, California, children above the age of six should not be exposed to their naked parents, adding that while there are no negative effects up to the age of six, it can cause issues as they get older.


Noting that it is a difficult question, Dr Mihalas explained in her study that there has been little research done on the subject and that it can vary across different cultures and families. 



Dublin Talks 98FM posed the question to its listeners, saying it is "an issue that every parent has at some stage or the other", and (not surprisingly) they received a very mixed response.


Some listeners said that their kids “regularly” see them naked, while others insisted that a parent should never be naked in front of their kids.




The question comes not long after Victoria Beckham received backlash for kissing her five-year-old daughter, Harper, on the lips.


With phrases like “inappropriate” and “so lesbian” being used, the picture caused a debate on whether or not it’s appropriate to kiss your child on the lips.


"Why tf are you kissing your daughter on the lips?" one user commented while another said: "You're not supposed to kiss your children on the lips".

Supportive followers were quick to dismiss the negative comments with one saying:


“How very sad society has become. It’s one thing to have an opinion but to feel disgust over a mother and daughter’s open display of love and affection is frankly worrying.”
