Quote: Originally Posted by GuildJenn I have no problem with it. My son asked for a dress and I got him one; he hasn't opted to wear it out of the house yet but he can wear whatever he likes. He likes nail polish, so he wears that about as often as I do (4x a year ). Even if certain things are innate to sex/gender (which, as research is showing, is way more complicated than a binary male/female model once you get into genitalia vs. chromosomes, etc. -...
Quote: Originally Posted by mamazee I think your perspective is a bit off. A teacher taking a photo of a child isn't akin to someone taking some kind of child porn photo, which seems to be what you're equating it to. And you putting "to remember it by" in quotation marks as if that's code language for something wrong is off too. No one thinks someone else's child is theirs, but that doesn't mean they don't also have a relationship with your child, and...
Quote: Originally Posted by rockycrop When I worked at a preschool over one summer in college, I took pictures of my group of kids on my last day of work. And, yes, I took them home. It was a way for me to remember my time with them, they really meant a lot to me. Your kids will have relationships with other people that have nothing to do with you (especially if you put them in school/clubs/activities). Of course we want to protect our kids, but at...
[QUOTE=fork;14098083]Except this is flat out wrong. In a public place, or a private place with owners permission, you can take a picture of who or whatever you want (with very few exceptions), including children. You can check out your rights as a photographer here: http://www.krages.com/phoright.htm Permission is only needed to sell/use for advertising pictures of people or children and sometimes property. The press works differently. They DO NOT need your...
Quote: Originally Posted by Ceili Well in your example this would be illegal because it was being used for advertising purposes, but different laws apply to newspapers. If you were walking through a demonstration for some anti-political whatever, then your image could be used in an article or with a caption about that event. Yes the photo and the caption are advertising for the center, but because they are published by the paper as news they legally...
Quote: Originally Posted by kcstar To me, the "control of one's image" comes across as... well,... expecting the child to be some kind of superstar. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. In my opinion, the best way to control one's own image is to pay attention to personal grooming / clothing style / situation. no, not coming from that angle at all-- quite the opposite. I don't give a fig about whether she's appropriately groomed or a...

This is the free local paper that is delivered to the doorstep of all 9000+ people in our town, including the ~100 sex offenders against children here. Her photo, FULL name, age, name of the center, the address of the center, and the dates/times of the workshop (she would be there another week) were all posted on the front page of the paper,...
Quote: Originally Posted by eepster Of course you have every right to feel this way, but you need to inform the school if you expect them to follow your wishes. It is very normal for schools to do this. Our family are vegetarian, so when I sent DS to school, I informed the school and wrote it on his forms. If I hadn't informed them that DS was vegetarian, and they fed him the hot dogs instead of the tofu dogs, then that would have been my fault. ...
Quote: Originally Posted by Belia When I taught elementary school I took pictures of my students all the time. Sometimes the pics were for a project for/by them.... sometimes they were for MY personal use. As in- I loved my students and worked hard for them and with them everyday. We were a family of sorts after spending 7 hours a day together for 9 months. And sometimes I put a ton of effort into a project / activity and I wanted a record of my hard...
