  • I think it would depend. Whats the purpose? How old are the children? I have no idea if it's illiegal but Under certain conditions, I dont see why it would or should be.

  • I agree with the PP. If its like a your sneaking up on someone with a camera and surprise them or something I see nothing wrong with it. I video tape my kids. My son is just now old enough to understand he is being videotaped. Does that mean its illegal to videotape him until he is at his age? If your doing it for sexual reasons (which some parents are sick enough to do) then yes it is and should be illegal

  • as long as they are not naked and you are not filming something naughty that can be perceived as child porn
