Madness!! by Spursfan on 29 September 2009 7:35am
 
Isn't this just STOOOOPID ?? And when you've read it, click on the first link underneath about photographing your kid in the bath!!

This sort of stuff makes me so mad. We have taken pix of our kids and grandkids naked (when they were little of course - they wouldn't thank us now hahaha!) in the bath etc - but these are innocent 'pleasures' surely? Photos of kids having innocent fun?

Yes by all means be vigilant for any kind of abuse - but surely common sense must be foremost?

Oh for God's sake. Shows just what a stupid paranoid world we live in.

OMG The UK is farked.

Some relatives in the UK told me that the garboes often won't even collect their trash when it's raining. Health and Safety regulations, of course.

Haha they must NEVER collect the trash then, it rains there every day! (well almost...)that'd be the world's easiest job!

Total insanity I agree. They outlaw babysitting, force you to pay an absolute fortune for registered child minders, so that it's not financially viable for a woman to go to work, then wonder why we are all becoming mired in poverty and debt. This from a 'Labour' Government that was supposed to represent the needs of normal working people rather than crucify them.

WIA that's why I an home with Ava! Well it's not entirely coz I love being home with her (they're not little for long) but for me to work at my old job would be utterly pointless, as what I would earn would almost go entirely on childcare. The extra money would be of enormous use to us but as you say it's not viable. I'll be home with her until she's of school age, then will work during school hours.

Yes, it's all getting so ridiculous.
