Tom Elliott discusses whether it’s okay to put photos of your kids online

Parents are being warned of the danger of posting photos of their kids online.

Children’s eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman-Grant has questioned whether parents have the ‘moral right’ to post pictures of their children in public forums such as social media.

The agency also recommends parents ask their children for permission before doing so.

Associate Professor Amanda Third from Western Sydney University said it’s an area many parents are still getting used to.

Prof Third said families need to have open discussions about online practices.

But Tom Elliott doesn’t think young children are mentally equipped to answer such questions.
