I donít care if their nude there, that way they can have freedom to be nude and I have freedom not to look at them. A win win situation.

At the beach there's nice changing stalls near the bathrooms for that purpose. Even if the kid didn't care about changing in front of everyone, I thought it was very inappropriate. The mom was there with 2 other ladies and children. She could of been more discreet about it. Never know if some weirdo may be lurking around the beach. I was a bit disgusted by it.

I think once the kids are out of diapers or pull-ups, kids shouldn't be changing in full view of everyone especially if they're starting to develop. I felt bad for the young girl being exposed like that in front of everyone.
Agree 100%. Who knows if a man that sexually likes children could have taken photos of the girl to jack off with later. He could also follow them home to grab the girl later.

When they get old enough to notice the difference and are too young to wait until later to ask about it.

Follow indecent exposure laws. Topless is legal in most states, but exposing the genitals is illegal.

I think Americans are way too prude about this. I personally wouldn't have my 8 year old daughter change in public, but I don't think it's a big deal if people of any age do.

Well, I'm a teacher and we would certainly not allow any of our students to strip down in front of others in school. So IMHO school age children should not strip at the beach.

The mom could have held up a towel for changing.

I don't see why the fact that the child being overweight has anything to do with the title of the thread.

However, to answer the question, I personally don't think any child over the age of three should be naked in front of strangers. Yes, it is true that the great majority of people are NOT pedophiles and that, imo, many parents do tend to be much too protective of their kids these days, but I just don't see any reason to take any risks when it is not at all necessary.

If you are French, the age is 88 or whenever you can last be at the beach.....

Seriously, tho, 6 or 7 is no big deal. Starting to develop? That's fat and even if it wasn't.......

I would say about akin to 1st grade in most places in the USA....so maybe 7+ assuming it is discrete. Americans are definitely victorian and prudish, so you can't have them walking around in their god given birthday suits.
