Not to mean to sound like a prude, when growing up I was grossed out & disgusted the fact my father would walk around freely in his underwear. And I'm talking about the common white underwear not boxers. When
When I voiced my concerns to my parents, they didn't give a rat's behind how I felt.

Yeah, my mom used to go braless in an old ragged shirt. Gross.
I don't do it intentionally but sometimes I don't realize they are downstairs when I'm coming out of bathroom in undies/bra. When they were little it was no big deal but yes, now that they are older I don't believe in it.

Did you watch the oscars? How do you feel about Neil Patrick Harris?

I don't give it a thought because I don't actually see anyone doing it. I don't do it.

I think the issue is their kids comfort level, not the actual act. Parents should take ques from their kids on what's comfortable for them

I can remember spending the night at a friend's house and her father came to the breakfast table like that. We were about 14 and it made me very uncomfortable. My own dad never paraded around in front of us girls like that.

He isn't my father. And with the Oscars being an formal Celebrity event. I thought it was in poor taste and inapproriate. Reference to a movie or not, still tasteless. Had it been a movie or show I was watching I wouldn't care if NPH was in his undies.

Did you ever stay the night at her house again?

Apparently it doesn't bother my kids since they still come visit me in the bathroom and shower. My boys like to walk around in their boxers. I don't really think it is a big deal. They see worse things on tv.
