Should a Toddler Cover Up Her Ta-Tas?

My 3-year-old girl whipped off her top at a party — is she one step away from showing up in a “Toddlers Gone Wild” video?

Momlogic’s Andrea: My daughter has a boyfriend. He’s 3 years old too. When the two of them get together, they both like to take off their clothes. Sometimes it’s when they’re running in the sprinklers; other times it’s when they’re bouncing on the bed like maniacs. I’ve always thought it was funny. They giggle like crazy.

But the other day at a barbeque, the boy’s dad made a comment that made me give my kid’s behavior a second thought. “Look out,” he said, chuckling, “she’s going to be a stripper when she grows up.” Um, wait a minute. Why? His son often greets us at the door sans pants. Does that mean he’s going to grow up to be a pervert?

Now I’m wondering if I should ever let my little girl take off her shirt in public. I’m even starting to toy with the idea of forcing her to wear a burka. Do they make them in 3T?

When is the right age for little girls to stop “takin’ it off baby, takin’ it all off” and start covering up?
