Child Eyes is campaigning hard to get sexual images out of children's sight. Porn in the form of lad's mags, The Sport, The Sun page three and more are bombarding our children's lives and parents are struggling. Mumsnet lads mags campaign was fab but not the heat is off it is worse than ever. We need the Government to step up legislation and MAKE retailers put children above profits.

Mumsnet support Child Eyes please!

That video sad isn't it essentially child abuse allowing children to see sexualised images seeing as most of those images are pornographic.

I totally support Child Eyes, it's a brilliant and long overdue campaign. A few years ago parents sucessfully lobbied for supermarkets to stop displaying sweets at children's eye-level at checkouts. This campaign should be as easy to understand and as easily dealt with as that one.
David Cameron, with his 'turn the page' comment gives 100% responsibility to the parents. Ok parents, let's take it!! Let's all sign the petition and complain to supermarkets and turn newspapers over and kick up a big stink until the government is forced to take us seriously! And Mumsnet, your support would make it happen quicker!

As a mother and teacher, I fully support the work of the Child Eyes campaign. These images are eroding ideas of real consensual relationships as they objectify women (in a way that just does not happen with men) and they cause women and young girls to self-objectify with all the problems that that entails. www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kMS4VJKekW8

Absolutely imperative Mumsnet get on board with this campaign (as it is with No More Page 3!) A no-brainer!

Yes please support this Mumsnet! My ds has just turned 3 and just started showing an interest in the photos in newspapers - I'm dreading his first questions about the highly sexualised front page photos on display in lots of shops. My lovely local newsagents keep all these papers well out of sight but I can't say the same for local supermarkets. I can't believe how many people have to see those horrible pornographic front covers of the Sport etc in shops because of a small number of people who want to buy them. It's rubbish.

I've only just heard about this. Much needed. Bumping.
