Families and Underwear Redo

I have left messages on several boards about my wife and I letting our little kids, (boy 6 and girl 4) run around outside in their underwear. We live in a rural, wooded setting and I don't see any problem with it. They don't know the difference. They can play in their pool, the sprinkler, the rain or the mud. Hosing them down is a lot easier in just their underpants if they play in the mud. My wife and I will also go out with them sometimes to play in the rain or watch them in the pool or take them down to the "pond" to swim. I usually wear colored briefs or boxers and she usually wears white or gray bra and panties or maybe a sports bra and panties. It's better than dirtying up the swim suits we have for each one of us all the time that we keep for "good if we go "out" somewhere like a water park. We were both brought up in this same area and both learned to swim from our dads as little kids in our underpants and nothing else. However there have been a lot of negative comments about how this is somehow immoral. I'd want to throw it out there. We've decided we'll go with the majority opinion.

If you answered "No" to any of the options two questions back, should children of visitors be allowed to play with our children outside in their underwear to play in the sprinkler, wading pool, rain, mud, etc.

2% (1) No. You should only allow you own children to do this.

The kids love to play with Mommy and Daddy. Is there anything wrong with us playing with them in our underwear in the pool, slip and slide, sprinkler, rain, mud, etc, or taking them swimming (isolated pond)? I usually wear colored briefs, (regular cut, no "low-rise") and my wife usually wears either white or gray bra and panties that covers up more than most bikinis.

6% (3) Yes. Appearing around your children this way is immoral.
4% (2) Yes. It undermines your parenting authority.
53% (23) No. Your kids don't care. They're just worrying about having fun.
65% (28) No. You're all family and live in the same house. Who cares?
62% (27) No, and anyone who says there is is WAY too uptight and needs to loosen up.
