ok so i came across a contest on here that asks u to put naked pics of ur kids on it... and ppl did! i dont know if they realise but anyone can get on circle of mums and look at those pics. they can also copy them. rite now a numba of pedophile cud be gettin off on those poor lil babies! i think it is very wrong that circle of mums wud even allow stuff like that to be put up for ppl to vote on! i'd advise anyone that entered that contest to go delete their entries. does anyone else have a problem with contests like this? cos i've mentioned it b4 and ppl think im over-reacting.

I think those kind of sickos are going to get naked photos of kiddies regardless of where they get them from. As long as the comp is aimed at Moms sharing photos of their bubs being bubs (albeit naked) then that is fine. Noone is getting hurt and it is not designed to encourage pedo's so why let the bastards control you? I havent put any naked photos up but wouldnt let those people dictate my decision to do so - any more than I would let rapists dictate what clothes I wear in public. You cant spend your life worrying about the things you cant control - just make sure that YOU are the only one taking naked photos of your bub and let that be your peace of mind :)

It is a sad fact of the world we live in that you have to protect your children. I agree that posting naked pics of you child on line is insane. But many people only think of pedophiles when thinking of their childrens safety. I do not put my childs name with any photos that I have of him online and I have requested that any of my friends the post pics of him (from birthday parties and bbqs and such) lable him as B(which is not a nickname) and nothing more. I do not want strangers to recognize my son from a picture and be able to address him by name. I am also extreamly careful about who I let on my friend list. And what kinds of pics I post. Trying to avoid things that may tell someone where he goes to school or what parks we go to. You can not always stop other people from doing things you would not. You can only protect your own children.

If anything like this happens again...maybe the best thing to do is stay as far away from contests like that...unfortunately some people just are not as smart!
I'm so glad that the photos have been removed to protect those that didn't think...

If you are taking naked pic's of your child, grand child or any child for that manner, and puuting them for all to see, there is something wrong with you. Yes, some parents may take pics of their kids playing in a bouble bath, but not all parents put them out for everyone to see. Any pics that show a child without cloths should not be veiwed by all. If you take those pic's as cute as they may be to you, they are something else to others. Put it in an album and share only with that child as a looking back on thows years type of thing. I have a pic of my kids being santa in a bouble bath, cute as can be, but if you think I'm gonna share that pic with anyone, your crazy! That is for me and my children to look back on and laugh.

As parents we want to take pics of everything, and who can blame us? We have to be smart, and decide who can see them. Web passages and sites are not safe for these pics. How would you feel if you found out some perve coppied your childs photo out of a site you placed it in? Lets use our heads. We can't fallow them around, but we can choose what we post of our children.

ROFL - athought occured to me...have you all realised that this attitude is just as big a contributer to the sexualisation of babies as any? Why is a pic of a naked baby indecent? What happened to celebrating our children for their asexual nature and their innocence? While I agree that the world can be a dangerous place IT IS NOT THAT BAD!!!


Are you high?? I mean really, are u out of your mind?? Not that bad. Think of it in this perspective, you turn on the pc one day, and you get an e-mail that someone saw or heard about a pic they saw that looked alot like ur nude child in a baby photo, photoshopped up with fith written on it, being passed around the the internet. Would you be ROFL then?  Your lax attitude in unfortunate for your children.  My gf had posted pics of her beautiful children on Yahoo 360.. Months later she got an e-mail from someone she knew. They had come across a profile on their of apparently someone who did not care for her. Her beautiful pictures of her daughter were on there photshopped with some vile words and redone with such pornographic filth. It took over 3 weeks to get yahoo to get that profile down, but it just came  back again under another ID.. Like I have said before, we as parents are the only ones who are the protectors of our children.. Everyone should look after the children, because if we do not, some sick pervert will have no problem helping themselves....

I had posted some photos of my newborn adopted grandson on myspace. He was maybe 3 min old. Myspace sent me a message saying they had deleted those photos because of the nudity of a child. I was shocked, but then sat back and realized they were unfortunatley correct. In this day and age any sick freak can get online post a pic of anyone they find to make a fake profile and view photos of your children. It is sickening. People never think it can happen to them, or to their children, but it does. every single day. My daughter was moleste 2 years ago. The sick freak took photos of her. the police did not confiscate the digital camera they found in the room. I live everyday in fear that a photo of my child will be posted on the internet in some sick forum for pedophiles. Why anyone would post a contest of children, even infants being nude is beyond me, but to me, it sounds like something is not right with that, I dont care if it is on here or not, it should not be allowed, and she be taken down, asap. Just my opinion. We are the only protectors of our children.

I totally agree with you.. i feel like they are tormenting those poor children, and i feel bad for them!! As for the skimpy outfits, i just wanna smack every mother that does that to their children!













I don't actually watch that show, but I have seen some shows about these issues, and don't you just love the way the mother's say "But she WANTS to do it, she loves it!!" 








You feel like saying 'of course she wants to do it - she is SCARED of disappointing you!!!"









 





I did watch it the other day,  and one of the fathers was actually crying when he learnt that his daughter was done with the competition, i guess she got as far as she could, and some trophy( i dunno).. the little girl was 2, he was telling her that she is done now, what is she  gonna do now.. i mean it was really weird and mean!! The little girl just stood there looking at him all < i did what you wanted, why are you disappointed < I was very sad for her!!

I was refering to an old case/arguement about tight jeans and rape. I dont think rape is only about clothes (in fact I KNOW it's not) Not ignorant just using an out of date reference I guess.

As far as the rest of it - as long as noone is hurting my child am I not protecting her? How are you going to ensure that there is noone masturbating to watching your child play on an oval with friends or walking to school (which happens ALOT too)? You cant control these things - what I can try and control is WHO photographs her and WHO touches her in ANY way - and that is where I believe my priority is in protecting my child. While it is not beyond possibility that a pedo could use my daughters photo to get off she wouldnt need to be naked for them to do so, so should I not post any pics of my daughter for people to see?

Whilst you are "Rolling on the floor laughing" about this issue Lydia, I suggest you read the papers. People on Facebook swapping naked baby pics, nursery school assistants takiing explicit photos during nappy changes, not exactly GOOD is it? And certainly not a laughing matter.



EXACTLY!  Lydia, the world IS that bad, unfortunately.  yes there is still beauty in the world and there are still trustworthy wonderful people out there, but there are plenty of dirt bags that we need to protect our children from because they can't yet protect themselves.  i have to ask, would you feel differently if the police approached your door with a photo of your child telling you they were trying to identify all the photos of children found when the broke up a child pornography ring?  because that does happen.  wouldn't you feel that your child's innocence was violated?  would you then "let" those sickos "control your actions"?  as for not letting the fact that there are rapists out there dictate how you dress, that's a poor example,  a woman is not raped because she is dressed provockatively, and it is ignorant to beleive that, rape goes so much deeper than that.  as it is ignorant to take such a laid back attitude when it comes to your child's safety and say that you won't let pedophiles control your life and influence your decisions....



 there are niave parents out there who don't understand internet safety for themselves and their children, we should all be more aware.  and i am pretty sure it isn't just my "perception", i'm pretty sure most mothers would agree with me that we need to do everything we can to protect our children from these sickos

I have read the paper and talked to people actually involved in child abuse situations. I am not condoning indecent pictures of any kind but indecent kiddie pictures are not exclusively nuddie pictures and nuddie pictures are not inherently indecent pictures. Im not saying that people should put pictures up - if you feel it is a safety issue then dont do it but dont condemn those mums who dont agree with you! For me the assumption that evil is inevitable in every aspect of a childs life is actually quite humorous - but I am entitled to that opinion

There is no such thing to over reacting to something like that. I would blow up on any one of my friends that post a naked pic of their child or any other child on a site like that. You can't be to careful these days. There are to many pervs out there, in our nieghborhoods. It is scary being a parent when there are peole like that every where you go..

I like your attitude Stacey-I read all the posts and I had one thought that no one else mentioned-how would the kids feel about it? To me, putting a picture on the internet is a little like putting it in the newspaper, or on t.v. Because I do have older kids, I can't help but think that they would not be pleased to know that I had ever put naked pictures of them out in public in any format. I am positive that my teenage boys would have a fit if I put naked pics of their baby sisters on the internet. I think for anyone to create a contest asking for such a thing is just wrong. I also agree with several posters, that any contest that compares one precious child against another is wrong anyway. They are all beautiful, and should never be made to feel less wonderful than another child based on the way they look. And the fact that the mothers of the little girls in the pageants say "she wants to do it!" just makes me laugh. I want to ask them "well if she wanted to jump off a bridge would you let her?" HAHA. We are all proud of our children, and we all just know that our own are the most beautiful, talented, brilliant little miracles anywhere on earth. Can't we just enjoy that knowledge, without asking strangers to vote on it?

As far as pics posted, my rule of thumb is this; and this is just MY rule I don't intend for everyone to agree with it.... but I will not post any pics of my gorgeous angel that I wouldn't want posted of myself, and I am a very modest person and expect my baby girl to be that way too. As far as I am concerned, her grandmas can see her naked tushy, but no one else! Again. this is just what I do I never claim to be right or perfect. :)

I completely agree with you there simone look at the news theses days 3people on facebook sharing indecent images they have of childrfen who aint even able to speak or understand their own bodies. I hope they remove the contest its degrading to the children. Not only that I understand parents shouldnt be scared witless of displaying pictures of their children, but I thought parents would have the cormmen sense not to publish nude pictures after the reports of pedofiles on the internet increasing.

yeah they are going to get naked pics of children one way or another but why be an enabler?  why put your naked child out there?  as a mother it is your job to protect your children from harm, and if part of that means simply not posting photos of them naked on a public forum.....  and as for the "why let the bastards control you?"  i don't think it's a matter of letting them control you, but it damn sure is a matter of (again) protecting your children from such monsters, you best beleive that knowing such disgraces to the human race live throughout the world sways my decisions on how i raise my children, what i allow them to do, and my own actions as well. 





Fear is a form of control - and from talking to family/friends in the police I am more concerned about her in public spaces than on the internet. I choose not to assume that just because there are pictures of my child on the internet that they are being misused. I am not judging the contest as right or wrong - it is what it is. I dont see why living our lives on the assumption that the wrong people are always lurking around the corner is productive?



 



I dont take unnecessary risks but I dont hold back because of what might possibly maybe happen either. Thats just my choice - I do protect my child and I dont enter these competitions regardless of the theme but I dont see how you can assume that those mums who chose to enter it DONT protect their children - its just that their ideas of what this involves is obviously different to yours!

I don't watch that Show either, the darn Previews are bad enough as it is.

I agree Kids want to please their Parents.

And I could imagine that one of the main Reasons the Girls "want to do it" is because they simply don't know any better and are spoiled rotten!

Just let your Kids be Kids, I don't understand why some Moms and Dads have to teach their Kid the kind of Mentality that Beauty is everything and if you shake your Stuff around enough, you'll get a Trophy. WTF?

I would never put thoughs pics on this site or any other site, cause their are people who prey on our ignorance as parents. But the ones who will suffer are the children. On your side, they need to do something about that contest. Have they taken it off yet, cause I will complain too if they havent.

I agree that naked photos of your children should not be posted online, but I don't think it's right that a couple would be arrested for developing naked photos of their own child. I have photos from the day of my son's birth and he wasn't clothed yet because they were still cleaning him up. Thanks to digital photography, I don't need to worry, but I don't think it's right that parents can't even have innocent photos of their babies butts.

Hi, my children are all grown up now. When they were younger the town where we lived had a yearly carnival/festival one of the attractions at this was a baby show. I went along with my oldest daughter when she was 9 months old but only too see what happened. Having been to the show as a spectator I made the decision never to enter any of my children in a baby show. Your child is perfect whatever they are like. I do not think it is right to compare them with other children in this way and say one is better than another . They are all different. I would certainly never have entered them in a naked baby contest. I think my mum has a photo of me taken just after bath time. but it stays in the photo album as others have said. I do like to see photo's of my nieces childern on line when they are enjoying holiday times etc., they are clothed though, as I live quite a distance away from them and it is nice to see how they are both prgressing..

[deleted account]

yes me too.. the pics could come up on any search not just fb or myspace even set to private.. there are hackers out there that can see what i just typed if they wanted to, i only put pics up that i dont mind if anyone sees.. protecting our children is very imp esp now, a lot of sickos

I agree with Lydia, pedophiles will get there porn regardless. I refuse to live in fear or teach my child to be ashamed of his body. Instead I will focus on teaching him awareness and safety in life and online. Part of that online safety is not entering my child into strange, on-line naked baby photo contests, but I don't have a problem with a photo of an infant at bath time.

I do have a problem with posting naked pictures of children online for our children's safety's sake. There's no need for that, and it's questionable, even for what seems like legitimate reasons. There's a fine line between artistic photography and child pornography.
