The French government is warning that parents could face fines and even jail time for posting intimate pictures of their children without their permission.

 

It is said parents could face fines up to €45,000 if found to be in breach of their children's right to privacy.

 

And there are others now stepping forward to support this claim.

 

Professor Nicola Whitton from Manchester Metropolitan University told The Guardian:

 

"I think we’re going to get a backlash in years to come from young people coming to realise that they’ve had their whole lives, from the day they were born, available to social media.

 

"Parents have to work out what’s right for them, but be aware that this is another person, another human being, who may not thank them for it in 15 years to come.

 

"It may seem hard, but my line would be don’t put pictures online until they’re of an age where it’s appropriate to discuss it with them."

 

However, there are those who argued this saying that if parents are honest with their kids about what they do and want to do online.
