Introducing nudism to your family

There's a book entitled "Going Bare" in which a husband and father of a young daughter and son decides to take his family to a nudist resort in France. The wife was hesitant but willing. The children were too young to really care and were more excited about the prospect of the vacation. The book is a good introduction to non-sexual nudism. I'm curious what would happen in your family if the head of the household, or really any member of the family, announced the desire to introduce nudism to the family.

Do you consider your family to be a nudist family already?
Yes (some questions may not apply to you, answer the best you can)
No - but I wish they were
No - and I'm kinda glad they aren't
What is your family's current attitude towards nudity?
We never see each other nude
Very rare occasional nudity (bath time for young children) but no casual nudity
Occasional nudity while dressing, but no nudity around the house
Casual nudity while moving from bath to bedroom, but no general nudity around the house
Casual about nudity, doors not closed while dressing, conversations while dressing, etc

Nude regularly but don't consider us nudists
We're nudist. Nearly always nude in the house.
The Head of Household may be either the father or the mother, or even someone else in the house, but most households have one individual who is the "head" even if he/she is the "first among equals". How would your family respond if the head of your household announced that the family was going to become nudists?
Obey without question. No one questions Father (Mother)
Be surprised, but agree. Father knows best
Question, discuss, debate, and even argue - but ultimately agree with the him/her.
Question, discuss, debate, and even argue - and ultimately refuse to accept his decision. Nudism is just to large a leap
Laugh hysterically and flat out refuse
If you (regardless of whether you are the head of the household or not) were going to try to get your family to become nudists, how would you do so?
Talk about nudity and nudism with the family over several weeks/months until you finally work up the courage to ask outright if we can be nude in the house.
Confide in one or two other family members until you have a majority, then as a group present it to the family as a whole.
Just ask outright over dinner - "Hey, Family - let's get naked!"
Announce that you are now a nudist and strip right in front of the whole family.
Walk out of your room nude and announce that you are a nudist and ask others to join you.
Slowly over time simply be nude more and more until it happens naturally.
