To think this could encourage this behaviour?

I have a few friends on facebook who will post pictures of their kids none stop, this is cool, it's up to them what they do with their photos on their own facebook

However there's a few that have made me confused for example

photo of child in washing machine 'cant believe found him in here, so funny'

photo of child manhandling cat 'ha dont know how this cat copes'

photo of child with cheeky grin 'hes just told his dad to fuck off im pissin me sides'

AIBU to think instead of taking a photo and showing the child that the parent finds this behaviour amusing, they should be putting their phones down and talking to their kids about how what they're doing is wrong? I think back to when I was very young and I think if my mum had been taking photos I'd have thought to do the behaviours more.

Or am I being a judgey fuck? wink

You have bad taste in Facebook friends.

It's up to them I suppose.

They're people I went to school with. Never really thought to delete them after having them on facebook for the past few years.

If you don't like it then scroll past or tell fb you want posts like that hidden. Judging is something I hate about fb.

FWIW I've taken questionable photos of my wee ones that I've found amusing. Not shared them online but they're there for memories of what they got up to.

Parents will parent and take photos how and when they want.

Look I'm the one on here who rales people for slagging people off for posting things (see the thread about people apparently being smug when posting about being blessed, or the one about people saying theyre in love) but my question wasnt about whether I don't want to see the photos - I don't care about seeing them - my question was whether people think this would encourage the behaviour. People can post what the hell they want on facebook that's not the issue smile

How do you know they don't e.g explain dangers of washing machine or not to swear? I'd probably explain to child but still find behaviour amusing (the first time).

They might do re. the washing machine thing but I still think stopping first and taking a photo is encouraging behaviour. The swearing thing is a recurrent theme sadly, she videos him saying things like 'what did you just say, you're on camera' sort of egging him on.
