Anyone NOT post their children's pictures on the Internet? Private doesn't count. I mean at all??

If so how do you handle birthday parties? We don't want our daughter's pictures posted and we have a huge 1st birthday Sunday.

  • I'm just not clear on what birthday parties has to do with anything... You mean of other children? I would hope they would respect the wishes of the mother. I know I would.

  • I respect your decision but I'm wondering what your fear is.

    pookiekins~are your kids school age? Our school posts pics of the kids on the school website all the time. How do you adress the school not taking pics of the kids?

  • I have had discussions with the teachers and principal. I am not the first parent to make such a request.

  • Gotta love your paranoia!

    I have news for you, if someone else takes pictures, they own them. You can NOT stop them from posting them online unless you copy write your child's image and ban everyone from taking photos...

  • We have to sign a waiver saying they can take our childs pic. THe only problem is if you say no then they cant be in the team pic for sports, or get their pic taken with their science project or on field day. Our teacher takes pictures often and puts them on the class newsletter so we can see the silly masks they made or all of them holding up their craft project. I have never thought about kids sitting out while that is done I jsut assumed they gathered the whole class for the pic.
