The Doctors: Should Your Kids See You Naked?
The Doctors TV show said that studies have shown that children who see their parents naked are more accepting of their own bodies.
Dr. Jim Sears said you want your kids to feel comfortable with their own bodies but there comes a point where they can be too comfortable and it become inappropriate.
He said that when his son was four, he saw him shower naked and then made a comment about his dad’s body to friends they ran into at the mall. That was the last time Dr. Sears let him see him naked!
The Drs: When Kids Get Curious, Don’t Let Them See You Naked
Dr. Andrew Ordon said that back in the 1960s everyone was running around naked and let their kids see them.
Dr. Rachael Ross said that you can run into a problem with little boys and their moms, and once they start grabbing at things they shouldn’t be touching, you need to not let them see you naked. The same goes for little girl and their dads.
Dr. Sears said that you need to make sure you don’t make them feel shameful about their bodies and why you’re covering up.
The Doctors: Breast Problems from Running
A viewer sent in a video and said she’s training for a marathon. She wondered if the bouncing of her breasts could cause problems.
Surgical breast specialist Dr. Kristy Funk said that the bouncing can definitely cause problems. Dr. Funk said that Cooper’s Ligaments attach your breasts to your chest and keep you perky. Repetitive bouncing can loosen the Cooper’s Ligaments, and it all goes downhill from there…literally.
Larger breasts can also pull on your chest muscles and cause pain. Dr. Funk said that you need to find a sports bra that’s tight enough to keep you from bouncing but loose enough so that you can breathe. Check out more information about Cooper’s Ligaments in the video below.
