|Parents and kids naked|
For some reason, many men have included the breasts of a woman as part of nudity; however, looking at history and biblical exposition, the breasts were not part of nudity or nakedness. In prescribing how Aaron’s linen breeches were to be made, God gave Moses the exact prescription to avoid exposing his nakedness. They were to stretch from the loins (hips) to the thighs (Ex 28:42; Is 20:2-4). I am sure that the hips do not go above the belly, or do they? In quasi nakedness, the individual wore only a tunic that measured still from the loins to the thighs. In Exodus 20:26, God ordered Aaron: the high priest not to build an Altar whose ascension is through the stairs for fear he exposes his nakedness. One does not need to climb up the stairs for people to see that they are naked if they did not have a shirt and the breasts were part of nakedness. In Isaiah 47:2-3, the same notion of nudity starting with the loins and ending with the thighs is repeated.
The nakedness of some people will scare their kids instead of entice them because their nakedness is ugly. We cover the least honorable part which is our genitals (I Cor 12:23). That is why the Israelites had to show their true fasting by covering those who walked naked in public (Is 58:7). Here the nakedness refers to rags. It simply meant giving clothes to those who did not have.
Therefore, it is not a good thing for a parent to walk naked in front of their child who is able to differentiate good from bad and can experience hurt feelings. They can do that if the child is still very young. It could traumatize the child or excite them sexually.
Until then, It is not a wise idea for adolescent or teenagers to see the nakedness of their parents.
