do u think this is wrong?? I do..

my friend on facebook recently posted pictures of her 3 year old having a bath in a bucket with her showing alot, cos the bad weather the town has no water so I completly understand the bucket bit but why post a picture of your daughter in the nude on a social network site, I know its her problem but its abit mental.. Made worse by the fact lots of poeple commenting saying great pic, shes so cute..

  • I have posted bathtub pics of my dd, she was about 4 months old. I don't see a problem with it as long as it's tasteful and it's baby pics. I wouldn't do it for older children.

  • Why would this be wrong? Do you think there is pediphiles on her friends list?

  • My daughter is 4 1/2. On the occasion I want to take bath pictures (Like trying out a cool new bubble set or bath toys) I'll have her wear a tank top or even her swimsuit. I don't want too many questionable pics of my kiddos after age 2 or so

  • I think it's wrong to show nudity of children (mainly over one, but even under I am still sketchy) online. That should be meant for home photo albums only, not meant to be openly accessible to perverts.

    3 is entirely too old to be showing privates online.

  • I think that you are suppose to protect your children since they are too little to do so for themselves.

  • @ Misty - If you only knew the privacy issues and concerns related to Facebook.

  • I see both sides here- yes, we see sweet innocent kids- nothing erotic about it. Unfortunately, there are alot of sicko's out there who do find them erotic- and worse- Plus I have heard of parents getting into trouble for having those types of photos of their kids. For her protection as well as her child's, she should take them down. It's just a shame we live in a world that will make us question something so innocent.

  • Ive lots of pics of my daughter in the bath, in a swimsuit but their for me not the WWW, there are huge concerns with facebook and privacy issues, I dont think any of her friends are peodos but how can u know now a days. Again each to their own its just not for me..

  • I personally would never post a picture of my child in the nude. I do have tubby pics of my kids but they're surrounded by like 3 feet of bubbles and the only thing you can see are heads/arms/legs poking out.
