To report this photo on Facebook?

Sorry a fb one. Someone I knew from years ago has just posted about 6 photos of herself in the bath with her niece and nephew. Kids are 3&4 ish. One has the little boy standing up so you can see stuff.
I'm not sure how private her profile is so I've reported the pics. I'm not overreacting am I? I'd never put bath time photos of children up on the internet confused

It just seems like such an odd thing to do.

KerwhizzedMyself Sat 30-Nov-13 21:07:43

I don't think you are overreacting. I think people forget its not a safe little photo album on the coffee table sometimes!

MillyStar Sat 30-Nov-13 21:08:25

YANBU I completely agree!

Hate these type of pics it's just weird

Tee2072 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:09:45

FFS So what?

Yes, you're overreacting. It's a naked child. Do you never see naked children running around your park or at the beach? What's the difference?

everlong Sat 30-Nov-13 21:11:45

Is she naked?

She might only have real friends as her friends..

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sat 30-Nov-13 21:12:40

You have reported the pics? It didn't occur to you to send her a message instead - or you know, mind your own business.

bundaberg Sat 30-Nov-13 21:12:58

yabu... they're her photos and up to her what she posts online

FlipFlippingFlippers Sat 30-Nov-13 21:13:38

Agrees with Tee

KerwhizzedMyself Sat 30-Nov-13 21:16:18

Naked kids on a beach. Naked pictures online. There is a difference?

Tee2072 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:16:30

Thank god there are normal people on MN after all.

I was beginning to think the place was nothing but PO.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 21:17:02

She's naked as well. And sending a message would result in a barrage of abuse as seen yesterday when someone reported something.

everlong Sat 30-Nov-13 21:18:39

Well she's obviously comfortable with the photo and who sees it.

Tee2072 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:19:14

Isn't it exhausting to be on the lookout for things you find offensive and worrisome all the time?

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 21:19:41

Naked kids in RL- no big deal
Online photo- potentially could be copied etc

That was my logic. Perhaps I've overreacted but you never fully know the people on your friends list.

Lorelei353 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:19:54

I sent a message to a FB friend once after she commented on her friend's photo of kids in the bath - I wasn't friends with them but could see their photo. Might not have been any of my business but thought I'd flag up, what strangers (well, friends of friends) could see. However, I wouldn't have reported the photos!

Tee2072 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:20:50


PansOnFire Sat 30-Nov-13 21:24:23

They aren't actually 'her' photos once they are on Facebook, they belong to anyone who chooses to take them from her page. Yes, she might only have real friends on Facebook but what about the people connected to her? I don't just mean through Facebook. She has been completely irresponsible, I really hope she has tight security settings as if she hasn't then who knows what type of person could end up with possession of them.

Unfortunately there are too many disgusting people in the world for 'minding your own business' to be an option anymore. Stupid, stupid girl. YADNBU, at all.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 21:25:52

If they were all fully covered up by bubbles I would've left it but it's the fact that the little boy is stood up facing the camera with his penis on show.

Tee2072 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:26:15

There actually aren't that many disgusting people in the world.

You just think there are.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 21:26:44

But there are some.

tethersend Sat 30-Nov-13 21:30:51

Surely the issue is that the photos break FB rules?

Anyone who disagrees with those rules should take it up with FB.


minionmadness Sat 30-Nov-13 21:36:15

Actually since they aren't her children I hope she sought permission from the children's parents before posting pictures of them in the bath.

SinisterBuggyMonth Sat 30-Nov-13 21:39:42

Maybe you could pm her just to advise?

Does seem like a monumentally stupid thing to do tbh

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 21:42:28

It's been removed along with an arsey status. It is bloody stupid especially since they aren't her children.

SinisterBuggyMonth Sat 30-Nov-13 21:42:58

I have to say, on personal experience, reporting to Facebook is pretty pointless

SlicedLemon Sat 30-Nov-13 21:46:01

You should be able to tell how private her album is by the little thing in the corner. If its a globe its public. If its an asterisk she has customised which friends see it and if its 2 heads then its her friends only.

Tbh - its not something I would post but I dont think I would report it.

Merel Sat 30-Nov-13 21:48:45

Personally I think you should just defriend her if you don't like what she posts. I don't think there is anything offensive about a naked child in the bath. I think you should leave decisions about the child's privacy to the child's parents/family (who presumably saw them on facebook too).

MmeLindor Sat 30-Nov-13 21:51:06

Of course there is a difference between a naked child on a beach and a photo of a naked child on a beach.

That pic can easily be copied and shared. Don't know about you Tee, but I would be sickened to think that a photo of my child was being bandied about on a paedophile site.

If she is so stupid to put a naked pic of a child on FB, then she probably has no privacy settings at all, and anyone can see the pics.

I probably wouldn't bother reporting to FB, but would have had a quiet word with her about this.

TheArticFunky Sat 30-Nov-13 21:52:38

I don't think its appropriate to put a photo of a naked child on Facebook. I had my account hacked along with lots of friends and I wouldn't be happy with my child's naked photo being available on the web. It's unnecessary why does she need her friends to see that particular photo?

Jengnr Sat 30-Nov-13 21:55:07

FFS. I hate how something as innocent as that gets all twisted and tarnished by sick minded individuals looking for something to be offended by.

phantomnamechanger Sat 30-Nov-13 21:58:23

some people are living in the clouds if they cant see why this sort of thing is wrong

of course it is not appropriate to post naked pics of children, not even her own children at that, on the internet. It is not the same as a family photo album, and you never know who might use those pictures inappropriately.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 22:00:18

Sorry but if the child's pre-school found out that there were naked photographs of him on the internet then it could well become a safeguarding issue. As I have just explained to her.
Not to mention nudity isn't allowed on facebook and the child isn't old enough to say whether he wants his willy made public!

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 22:01:40

She has explained that it's only her 300 friends who can see it. I've just explained that all it takes is 1 in that 300 to copy it or share it and there's a problem.

I'm not offended by the photo. I just think it's inappropriate to share it publically.

TheArticFunky Sat 30-Nov-13 22:01:41

My cousins account was hacked and her photos (entirely innocent ) were used as a profile photo of someone who was spamming people asking them to view a very dodgy link.

Facebook is not warm fluffy land full of lovely people there are some real dodgy people on FB. Anyone who puts their child's or another child's privacy at risk is naive and irresponsible.

tinkertaylor1 Sat 30-Nov-13 22:02:55

what panson said

I'd send her a link to this story about a teacher demonstrating to her class how quickly you lise control of your pictures online.

tinkertaylor1 Sat 30-Nov-13 22:11:27

There was a post on FB the other day and I was quite startled by it.

It was a picture of a lady holding up a card stating some something like 'today I'm talking to my students about placing picture on the internet, lets see how quick this can travel'' or something to that effect.

It had been posted the day before and had a staggering amount of likes...over 100,000 in one day! It had travelled all over the world. Once a picture goes live that it, its not yours.

Its a horrible world we live in. sad

RIZZ0 Sat 30-Nov-13 22:23:01

Actually, all the for-fucks-sakers and mind-your-own-beeswaxers are utterly naive if you think that naked pictures of children on facebook wouldn't fall into the wrong hands.
FB is utterly riddled with paedophiles and even if it wasn't, we owe children the courtesy and respect not to plaster their private parts over the bloody internet before they have the wherewithal and rights to object.


SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sat 30-Nov-13 22:59:42

I'm a FB addict, and even I think this is so unreasonable.
Her niece and nephew? So not even her kids. I'd be absolutely FUMING if one of my siblings posted bath pics on Facebook to people who I don't know (because I DON'T know everyone in their friends list.)
Regardless, they wouldn't be bathing with them. End of. Even if they were it wouldn't be up there on Facebook anyway! Some people are idiots when it comes to Facebook.
Has anyone asked the kids whether they want their bits all over FB? As I'm sure as soon as they're old enough to tell yoi it would be a big fat, emphatic NO!

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sat 30-Nov-13 23:02:44

Another point is the hacked one. My brother had his account hacked by a randomer in another country he had never visited.
Why would you feel comfortable with some stranger thousands of miles away looking at your children in the bath if this was to happen to you?
It's not a coffee table bring the albums out type thing to friends on Facebook. You are insanely naive if you think so. It has the potential to go EVERYWHERE!

FredFredGeorge Sat 30-Nov-13 23:10:32

Naked kids on the beach can be easily photo'd and that image shared anywhere too, you don't have to be the photographer, the only difference would be if you never let your child naked in a public place otherwise.

HildaOgden Sat 30-Nov-13 23:16:19

Apart from the naked child photos (not really sure what I think of that,no strong feelings either way I suppose)....does no-one else find it a bit weird,kids sharing a bath with their naked auntie???Seriously?I find it odd...I certainly never saw my aunts in the nip (thank God)

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sat 30-Nov-13 23:19:07

Exactly. It's not like when we were growing up, with just cameras pointing blatantly.
Now it's all instantaneous under the guise of looking at your phone and done surreptitiously by randomers.
Sad state of affairs, but true.
You'd have to be mad to let your kids run around on the beach naked nowadays. Really sad, but true.
Have they expressed an opinion of you uploading their naked bods to the internet? No? Then it is NOT your place. They are people in their own right,

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sat 30-Nov-13 23:21:13

does no-one else find it a bit weird,kids sharing a bath with their naked auntie???Seriously?I find it odd...I certainly never saw my aunts in the nip (thank God

I do! smile Bathing naked with my aunties would have been seriously weird, and would definitely think it weird if my sis decided to bathe with my kids!Weird all round there!

amistillpregnant Sat 30-Nov-13 23:36:22

I think the aunty investigating. If it was an uncle bathing with his niece/nephew & posting pics on face ache...

amistillpregnant Sat 30-Nov-13 23:39:32


WallyBantersJunkBox Sat 30-Nov-13 23:48:55

There aren't that many disgusting people in the world.

Operation Yewtree meant nothing then?

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 23:53:50

The aunty acts like they're her kids. It's all really really bizarre.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 23:54:33

Oh and it was the aunties mum taking the photographs. It's actually really odd.

rpitchfo Sat 30-Nov-13 23:59:29

This thread is depressing

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:00:33

Due to the paedo paranoia or lack of it?

freckledleopard Sun 01-Dec-13 00:03:11

Evenif the photo ended up being copied and fell into the hands of a paedophile who then sent the image to his paedophile buddies, it has no impact on the child in question, does it? Unless you trawl the internet looking for photos of nude children, you wouldn't be aware if your naked child's photo was online and thus, in that case, ignorance is bliss. Whether some vile paedophile is looking at an image of your child or not, how would you know and how would it realistically affect you?

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:04:28

But why would you knowingly put such a photo out there? Regardless of whether you know if a paedo has seen it or not, why take the chance someone might?

knowledgeispowerr Sun 01-Dec-13 00:07:15

Why wouldn't you mind a paedophile having a copy of your child's naked picture? That's the question.

TheArticFunky Sun 01-Dec-13 00:08:44

No Freckled. It wouldn't bother me in the slightest. hmm

freckledleopard Sun 01-Dec-13 00:16:20

Why should I have to censor what is normal and innocent for the sake of some warped fuckers out there? FB wasn't invented when DD was a baby or toddler so no nude photos of her are on fb. However, I don't see why, as and when I have further DCs, I should have to assume that paedophiles are lurking at every corner about to copy an innocent image.

A paedophile could go to the beach, see a naked child and fantasise about that child. You can't control what imagery goes on in someone's head, nor are you aware of that person's thoughts. Hence I don't subscribe to the hysteria on this thread.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 01-Dec-13 00:18:49


My mum wouldn't have photos of me nude for her own family photo album. This was the very late 80's, early 90's. Putting nude photos of children on the Internet is unthinkably stupid.

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:19:40

Riiiiight then. An image in someone's head is very different from having a copy of a photograph.
Why make it easier for paedophiles? Distributing images of children is a crime. Putting photos out there that anyone can access is just wrong.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 01-Dec-13 00:25:29

I do wonder about children growing up with their parents putting photos on the Internet.

Will they think it's normal? Will it be something they could potentially be upset by? Be angry about?

I don't have children yet but think, at the moment anyway, I will avoid doing it.

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:26:09

Oh for god's sake, its a little boy with his willy out. It doesn't become a pornographic picture just because some sick fuck might get off on it, I think it is abhorrent your first thought is to report it for that reason.

shock at the utter naïveté of Freckled....

Very worrying.

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sun 01-Dec-13 00:28:40

A random thought in a sicko's mind is an entirely different scenario to willingly putting your child's pic up there publically for everyone to see.
Look at it this way.
Would you walk down the high street with a huge batch of photos you'd just printed off at Boots or wherever of your kidsnaked in the bath, and start distributing them to everyone you passed in the street when in town?
Genuine question.

salsmum Sun 01-Dec-13 00:29:04

I suppose it's natural to be worried for children who are vulnerable and thinks F/B has a lot to answer for...I saw a video that had been shared of a woman in her teens/20s who obviously had stunted growth and learning difficulties doing a twerking (sp) type dance which had obviously been shared for fun because of how she looked (she was clothed BTW) it made me feel uncomfortable because it could have been taken by someone in a position of trust such as a carer maybe..I did not 'share it and thought it was in poor taste the origin of the video would have been hard to trace and may not have been U.K. (the girl didn't speak) F/B do not take VERY offence sites down so would not react on report sad I'm sure that lady thought she was just having a dance in her room with a trusted adult.She certainly wouldn't know it was going on WWW I don't know if YABU but I do think folks need to be think before putting pics up of naked children because they can be copied etc and put on porn sites. I do support and help animal charities amongst others a site came up promoting Bestiality
(sex with animals- which is still legal in some countries) when some of my rescue friends sent messages to the site opposing it the 'respectable looking' female University student who set up the site got on the rescuers F/B pages and posted pictures of them and their pets on this horrific site to look like they were promoting the site even if the lady in the baths friends only can view the pics what of their partners/family members who also have access to her computer??? F/B is a great site if used with caution.

And now fuckwittery.....

Facebook is not secure. Why on god's earth would anyone post naked pictures of ANYONE on there?! C'mon!

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:29:29

Op distributing indecent images of children is a crime, this picture is not indecent ffs!

Flibbedyjibbet Sun 01-Dec-13 00:30:11

Sliced lemon Thanks to your post about the globe/2 heads I just went and checked all my albums. Nearly all of them are the 2 heads- friends only but my profile pics has a globe. Any idea how I can change the privacy setting please?

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:30:15

I genuinely don't understand why parents take naked pictures of their children. I don't have any of mine and as far as I know my mum doesn't have any of me.

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:31:09

Curlyhaired because I don't worry about my friends and family who have access to my private fb profile distributing child porn, oh and wait, because a pic of my DC in the bath is not child porn!

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:31:44

It's child porn if the wrong person sees it surely?

BrandiBroke Sun 01-Dec-13 00:31:51

I never used to think there was a paedophile round every corner and freckled, your post about it not really affecting anyone if a photo did get looked at by someone like that used to be pretty much my opinion.

Then a few months ago someone quite close to my husband was jailed for downloading and distributing indecent photos of children. He was also an active member of a network of people who would discuss their sick, twisted fantasies together. No evidence was found of him actually molesting children but I think that is where his actions would have led if he hadn't been caught. A few weeks later someone related to someone else I know was arrested for similar offences.

I never used to think paedophiles were everywhere but now I think there are far more out there than anyone would want to imagine. And I do think that lots of them could move on from looking at innocent bath photos to actually molesting a child. So I would never post naked photos online. Plus, I also think that most children are not going to be very happy if, as adults, they find there are naked photos of themselves on the internet.

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:32:28

What about babies? My first pic of DD1 and DD2 they are both naked as the day they were born, on the day they were born. i put those pics on FB. For my family to see.

Turnipsandpumpkins Sun 01-Dec-13 00:32:36

I agree that it is wrong to put pictures of naked children on the internet. That child cannot give consent, and once the picture is posted it is very difficult to contain it. I.e. the 'share',function.
FB has a clear policy on this for a reason, it cannot be expected to police the photos to determine which is an innocent picture of a child posted by a relative, and which are posted by someone with malicious intentions.
YANBU to report it. I would be fuming if someone posted a pic like that of my DCs.

Kyrptonite Sun 01-Dec-13 00:33:48

Nope no naked newborn photos. Towels, nappies, vests etc. but nothing with them naked.

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sun 01-Dec-13 00:34:10

but my profile pics has a globe. Any idea how I can change the privacy setting please?

Go into privacy setting on the right hand side and set EVERYTHING to friends only.
Sometimes profile pics come up as everyone can see - simply hide them from your timeline as soon as you post them. smile
Do this by hovering at the right hand side of the post until a drop down menu comes - where it says hide from timeline, click on there. Sorted for anyone else outside of your friend list seeing it smile

A picture of a fully dressed child playing innocently can be used as porn if the viewer is so inclined.

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:34:44

I should think that photo has to be objectively indecent not just in the mind of a paedophile to meet the offence but would be interested to hear from any criminal lawyers who know

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:37:21

I've just realised the photos are of the fb poster's niece and nephew i.e. not her own children. I read it originally as the OPs niece and nephew. I don't think its on to post naked pics if not your own children.

Flibbedyjibbet Sun 01-Dec-13 00:37:49

Thank you Santa.
Next time I hear that will be on Christmas morning aaah.

Agree with everything Brandi says. I also have known someone jailed for similar things. Won't go into details. But suffice it to say I would never, EVER post naked pictures of my children online. I have got naked pictures of them playing in the bath etc but they are our family pictures and the thought of some sicko getting off on them and distributing them (and it more than likely WOULD happen) turns my stomach - how on earth can anybody be of the opinion that it's ok if you and your child are oblivious to that?!


fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:52:23

Brandi its not OK that someone gets off on it but on a balancing of risk, the risk that a paedophile gets hold of my child's naked innocuous bath photo from my private fb profile is v v low and I'd rather not censor innocent childhood photos due to that v low risk. I don't have any full naked pics apart from baby pics (naked on scales and me and dd3 naked in birth pool although you cant see my bits underwater) but I wouldn't hold off on posting a v small child's pic. My mum's got a couple of me naked in a paddling pool in our family album, never felt any concern when I've looked at that album.

fuckwittery Sun 01-Dec-13 00:52:52

Sorry last post to Curlyhairedassassin not brandi

Dubjackeen Sun 01-Dec-13 01:18:59

Same here. And not something I plan to inflict on my nieces and nephews. Ever.

Droflove Sun 01-Dec-13 01:31:38

I think it's all vey ridiculous. Maybe someone should ban children from public in case someone sick looks at them in a certain way......

foreverondiet Sun 01-Dec-13 01:44:16

I would have send a message suggesting she removes, but if she didn't I'd remove. What did the children's parents say? I'd be hopping mad if my brothers or sisters did this.

caruthers Sun 01-Dec-13 01:49:34

Pictures of naked children on FB is weird full stop.

Add to that you've got a naked adult with them who isn't a parent and i'm afraid i'd be very suspicious of their motives.

Surely nobody could be that naive?

minionmadness Sun 01-Dec-13 09:37:37

As I pointed out way up thread... These are NOT the FB posters children! Surely this is the real issue here.

I have made it very clear to my family that I don't want pictures of my dc they may have taken posted on FB. I should be the only one who decides which pictures to share pictures of my dc.

People often forget that friends and family may sometimes have hundreds of friends who you don't actually know so why would you want some random strangers looking a pictures of your dc in the bath.

VulvaVoom Sun 01-Dec-13 10:08:38

My mum's husband put pics of DD, who was 9 months at the time, naked in the paddling pool on FB, I was not amused and a bit shock that he thought it was OK, so I get where you're coming from. Some people are a bit clueless thick

MmeLindor Sun 01-Dec-13 11:13:20

Yes, it would disturb me to think that some nameless, unidentified paedophile was getting his rocks off to a pic of my naked child.

I run a website for preteens and some of the search terms that lead to my website are horrendous. They make me sick to the stomach.

I don't think there are peeeedos everywhere, but I know there are people who search and share such photos online and I would prefer if my kids weren't part of that.

It is totally different than a child naked on a beach because there is a permanent record of that moment, which may be shared.

If the person posting the pic has no privacy settings set, she is sharing her family pics with complete strangers. Or at least friends and their friends.

Mignonette Sun 01-Dec-13 11:17:53

It isn't paranoia to be sensible. Those who depend most on social media are often the least equipped to risk assess. Because they cannot be objective.

ZombieMojaveWonderer Sun 01-Dec-13 12:01:00

I would be furious if my brother posted naked pics of my kids online. However innocent I don't want people I don't know seeing them (I don't want people I know either tbh) My kids have also never been naked in public so why on earth would I want them all over the Internet. Obviously the kids parents may not feel the same and are happy for it but I also don't wanna naked kids all over Facebook and I'm sure neither do a lot of people.

catgirl1976 Sun 01-Dec-13 12:05:34

Wouldn't bother me, except they are not her children and the parents might be bothered

But that would be for them to get concerned about I think

WallyBantersJunkBox Sun 01-Dec-13 12:27:01

So if there is nothing wrong with people viewing photos of naked children by accessing Facebook accounts belonging to others and saving them as a personal cache are the same people happy to let strangers take photos of their children naked on a beach?

It's not Peadophile hysteria, it's general respect. If my niece and nephew posted a naked picture of me, or their Gran on FB without permission they'd be overstepping the mark.

Why don't children deserve to be treated with dignity? Why does everyone/anyone need to see a photo of anyone naked in a bath?

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sun 01-Dec-13 13:16:38

No it's not odd or weird to share a bath with your Auntie. I did with my and my niece and nephew do with me. I loved it as a kid and they love it too.

I don't understand people who think nakedness is a huge deal or have pointedly never taken photos of their children naked.

There are photos of me in my baby book - in the bath, lying on a rug etc naked as the day I was born, I don't feel at all disrespected or violated - I think that's such a daft way to think. Lots of my friends, boyfriends etc have seen them - so what?

AnyFuckerWillDo Sun 01-Dec-13 13:23:38

YANBU. Those places are havens for peadophiles

MostWicked Sun 01-Dec-13 14:32:11

"FFS. I hate how something as innocent as that gets all twisted and tarnished by sick minded individuals looking for something to be offended by"

It hasn't been twisted and tarnished by sick minded individuals looking for something to be offended by, it's been twisted and tarnished by sick minded individuals looking for something to w*nk over.

People do share these kinds of images. They also manipulate them to make them look even more abusive.
Posting pictures of naked children on Facebook is really, really dim. The notion that you have privacy because you have your photos set to "friends only" is so flawed. All it takes is ONE friend to get hacked, and all of your privacy has disappeared.

How would you feel, if one of these lovely innocent photos of your child standing naked in the bath, was manipulated to show your child performing a sex act, then that photo was posted online and you saw it?

Facebook will always remove naked children if reported. If people are so stupid as to post them in the first place, then responsible adults should report them.

And children have rights too. I would hate for naked photos of me as a child, to be posted online. Once posted, you no longer have control over them, so they can't just be deleted. Parents who do this, show a completely selfish lack of respect for their children.

I would have a blue fit if my sister put a picture of her and my naked kids on facebook for her close intimate circle of 300 facebook friends to see.

It's like a cool kids ganging up on the nerds whenever this issue is raised. It's perfectly okay not to want people to flash your childs bits on the internet. This doesn't mean your a PO or a mealy mouthed spoil sport looking for paedophiles behind every curtain.

I think its quite nice to share a bath with relatives. And seeing a toddlers penis or vagina on Facebook wouldnt bother me. If it had bothered me I would have messaged the poster of the pic first.

So there is no doubt YABU.

My DS shares a bath with my sister when he stays at hers I don't think its weird. In fact I didn't think anything of it at all he's also had baths with his gay male godparents when he was younger. To me its entirely innocent and don't think anything of it as I don;t think any of them are paedo's!!!

I have a pic of my son in then bath playing with is toy shaving kit. Its an innocent pic but I'll wait for the safe guarding people to pop round confused
