The Pants Rules

Due to the desire of the boys in my house to run around naked all the time(or at least, in nothing but underwear/diapers), the following rules are in place:


Pants must be worn at the dinner table. You want to eat, you must have on more than underwear. Or socks.


Pants are required if you wish to answer the door. Even if you are almost sure it's your grandma, you must put on pants. The UPS man is more than a little freaked out by naked boys running to the door yelling "Package here!"


Leaving the house requires pants. This includes getting the mail and going to pick up one of your brothers from school. No, I will not take "naked man" with me to school, so please stop asking.


If company is coming over, you must put on pants.


When the temperature is below 50 degrees outside, you must wear both pants and a shirt, even though we are inside the house.


The proper place to get dressed for the day is NOT in the entranceway of our home, where the neighbors can see through our double glass doors.


Underwear, a shirt, pants/shorts, and shoes are all required for school. Socks are negotiable: the rest of the items on this list are not. The same goes for outings to the store, church, the playground, and all restaurants, even those that give away toys with your meal.


Tell me that kids eventually grow out of this stage! Do your kids actually like to wear clothes?

my kids love to be naked so much that I have the underwear rule...to sit on my couch or eat a meal one must have underwear on...
I can't force the pants thing, cuz um, I usually don't have any on at home either! just a t shirt and some undies, maybe a pair of the hubs boxers...
geez...I wonder where they get it...

my kids all have varying degrees about how much/what clothes they want to wear. All of them go to school so, I expect them to dress by school dress code.

Secondly, I have three boys and one girl. I don't want to raise prudes, but I think there should be a certain level of respect. Therefor, I expect them to be moderately covered.

I'd like to tell you that it does. Okay,for the most part, mine will keep clothes on at the appropriate times now that they are 11 and 7 but just a few months back, we caught the two of them and their 13year old cousin stripped down to their underwear and running around outside throwing the football, at dark and in the cold, at their grandmother's house. It is down in the woods, but still!

This is great, my girls will always wear clothes but my boys? The older they get the faster they strip. I thought it was just my house. We have a "you must wear underpants at the dinner table rule." They are little so it is still sort of cute but according to your post this may last until it is not so cute anymore???

how funny! I never had problems with my girls wanting to be naked, but my little brother used to tear off his diaper and run down the street so much, my dad had to use duct tape to keep it on.

Those rules are awesome! Now, if you could just tell me how to get a 15-month-old to listen to them! I swear, my child is the same way ... she's always tugging at her sleeves. She won't even keep a bib on! Good luck implementing the rules!

By not wearing pants, maybe they're helping to cut back on the never ending laundry?

My kids don't like socks and shoes, no matter how cold it is. They would probably go outside in the snow wearing flip-flops if I let them! In the summer, my boy has an aversion to shirts.

LOL, love your list! CamCam is my naked boy, as I've blogged about MANY times. Right now he's running around in just a diaper, no matter how many times I dress him during the day he strips down. When I tell him he has to put clothes on before we can leave the house I get a big, whiney "Whyyyyy?" I guess some kids just love the freedom. Or they're naturally hot.

This really put a smile on my face this morning. Personally, I do enjoy a pantsless baby boy, however I'm sure it's not as cute as they get older. My favorite rule is that you must put pants on while answering the door. Thanks for the laugh!

Hayden rarely wears pants. We aren't as "strict" with our rules as you - he just has to wear pants when we go out and when we have visitors. He can eat at the dinner table without pants, he can answer the door without pants on, and the temperature outside has no impact on his pants-wearing. I don't know why he prefers to not wear pants, but he does. He does wear a shirt and underwear though... so I suppose it could be worse!

The only time my kids disrobe is when they are wrestling and they want to take their shirts off. Buster actually really dislikes having his pants off. If I have to change a pull up or he goes potty shortly before bed, I try to keep his pants off and he has a fit.

Lol! My daughter calls herself "undies girl" when she decides to hang out in a t shirt and undies, usually at the end of the day. My son thinks naked is best but will settle for a diaper. Thankfully we live in a warmer climate!

On the other end of the spectrum, my son may end up being a never-nude. He's never wanted to be naked, and I've just always had clothes on him. lol If he's missing an article of clothing, he can't do anything until I've replaced it. I think mine is weirder than yours!

My child, a girl, pretty much wants to be naked for a good half hour before getting dressed in the morning and for a while at night before pj's too - sometimes from the minute we get home at 6pm. Depends on her mood. She just turned five.

My brother has three boys under the age of 10 and yeah, someone is always naked from the waist down.

My middle boy doesn't like to keep his pants on. There will be days - in the middle of the afternoon - he'll walk out completely naked - especially after going to the bathroom. I usually have to tell him literally about ten times to put his underwear and pants on. If I don't, he'll end up running around naked for the rest of the afternoon. Can you say 'exhausting'?

I have all girls, and they are often all 3 naked. At the moment, 2 out of 3 are actually fully clothed! But that is rare. We homeschool and are almost always at home. So if I can even get them to wear underwear, I'm doing pretty well. Shoes...now that's another story! They won't wear shoes anywhere. And I don't really push it because if they do "wear" them, they kick them off as soon as we get there and I end up hunting down shoes when I'm ready to go home. Not fun.

My girls are polar opposites...they get all sorts of dolled up for dinner. Dress up clothes, tutus. The works!!

Haha, love the rules. Kaia's not too big of a struggle yet but someday she might be. The girl HATES being bundled up

OMGosh that is so funny. We had to force our oldest to wear clothes...and he still likes to flash his moon at us (he's 12)! I don't know what it is with butts in our house...but everybody like to share them!!! Except me...I keep it under wraps!

My daughter loves to be in her underwear. She'll wear her cute outfits when we're out but as soon as we're home, she strips down to her drawers.

ROFL!!! We had to make clothing rules after the sweet "Papa" from church was traumitized by the 12 little girls in our small group all stripping naked in order to play dress-up.

We still have clothing rules. I don't actually think they care about clothes until they care about the opposite sex.

Funny! As a Mom to three boys, I just have to say: Good luck with THAT! At 15, 10, and 9 I am still asking if they have on underwear and telling the 10 yo that hula dancing in nothing but socks is no longer approriate even if one hand covers his privates ;)

OH, thank you, thank you, I thought I was the only one! I am consistently amazed at my two boys' tendency to get naked and streak around the house. They even created their own theme song called. "We are the naked brothers and we hate clothes!" Thank goodness I have finally found the right community of mommies with boys!
