Breach of privacy of children when parents post images of minors on social media

What are the potential legal consequences of parents posting images and other private information about their young children on the internet

Very few parents give a second thought to the potential consequences of breaching the privacy of their children by posting images and other private information on the internet.

In this podcast we look at two aspects of this issue. The first is the legal aspect. We ask whether children have a right to sue their parents in court for breach of their right to private life. The answer might surprise most parents.

The second issue we we are considering in this podcast is is the potential emotional impact on the child following what the child might consider as years of constant invasion their privacy, all facilitated by the people who were meant to protect them and look after their best interest, their parents.

There is a very serious food for thoughts here.
