How many times have you been traveling with children as a naturist?
Maybe you haven’t been traveling with children as a naturist. The reason could be that you thought, it could be that
- this is too much out of the norm.
- it would bad for the children.
- people who are naturists are so beautiful – how will they look at me / us.
it could actually also be that there was no reason – you just haven’t thought about it.
Here are 5 reasons why traveling with children as a naturist is a great idea.
Save money and time
When you travel as a naturist you don’t need as much clothing. Traveling as a family and a naturist will save you for a lot of packing/unpacking and might even save you a fair deal of money. Many low-cost carriers don’t include luggage in their prices (except for hand luggage), they will charge you extra for a baggage.
Example – RyanAir has a fee on 25EUR for a 20kg bag – each way that is. If you are a family of 3 persons and normally needs to bring 3 bags then you probably could save, at least one bag while traveling as a naturist. 50EUR saved – that is actually not bad at all 🙂
Easier for the small ones and less comparison
Families with small children will find it easier traveling as a naturist – they don’t need to help the kid to get dressed when they want to get outside. The children will also find it more satisfying because they don’t need to ask for help everytime they need to get outside.
The older children will find it easier on their body image. They will not compare to who is got the right clothes and who hasn’t. In the buff, we are all equal with our flaws and assets. The older children will find that when they mingle with other children the focus will not be on how you dress, but on who you are. I think that is a really good thing to learn as a child.
Children learn about their body
We live in a society where everything is hidden and everything is shown at the same time.
Let me explain: When many people hide their body on the beach, don’t take shows at school and in other ways hide their body. BUT at the same the body is also shown a lot in the medias – what is shown is a perfect body which has been photoshopped and manipulated. This mix gives a very confusing image of the human body – no wonder why children and young people has a bad body image.
When children is a naturist beach, naturist resort or other places where nudity is ok. Then they will discover that their body might be normal and that all people have different and imperfect bodies. This will help the children accepting their body as it is.
Diversity leads to acceptance
I have kind of mentioned it before in this article – but diversity really leads to acceptance. This doesn’t just count for the children but also for the parents – meet other people who like you have chosen to do something different than the norm, namely visiting a naturist location. Meeting other people who are doing things differently than the norm, makes you feel that you might not be so much on the wrong track as you thought.
Meeting other people and seeing their different bodies, also makes you accept, that your body is equally different. And yes – you might think your hips is a bit too large and you have gained some weight after the birth of your wonderful child(ren) – so have many other mothers. That is actually ok.
Get back to you
Living together and accepting your own body, your families bodies and all the bodies at the naturist resort will make you feel that you get much more back to yourself. Your family will feel that you/they are natural together and that it actually is ok to be natural together because other people is natural together as well. You will soon discover that naturists tend to have more eye contact and thereby be more at the moment listening to what you say instead of studying your boobs or other parts of the human body. It is really satisfying that one can find an inner peace in just being you.
