How to Deal with Back to Preschool Stress. Is Stress Affecting Your Family? Try This.
A brouhaha broke out on Instagram recently over a picture of a 3-year-old eating ice cream while taking a bath. The issue was not about eating ice cream in the bath tub — truthfully I think the concept is brilliant — but instead, everyone freaked out about the blogger publicly posting a full frontal nude photo of her child for the viewing pleasure of her 25,plus followers. I have many pics like this!
Let friends in your social network know what you are reading about. If you took a bath time picture of your naked baby, you can relax. A federal appeals court has ruled that's not reason enough for DCS to take your kids away.
If you post all over social media then yes there is a problem. If you take a few photos for your photo album, then nothing is wrong with that. They weren't even naked photos.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a parent nowadays without at least one naked baby bum or shirtless toddler somewhere in their camera roll. Babies and small children are naked beasties, and they're fairly adorable. The nudity is innocent, and it feels almost sacrilegious to consider it anything but the sweetness that it represents.
Last year, I wrote a story about a woman who stated that while she trusted her husband, she would not allow him to bathe their daughter. There were people who took issue with the stance. But it seemed Smith upped the ante in this situation.
I didn't offer an opinion when you asked before about this matter because my parenting of small children was in the "olden times" - before screens as small as the palm of your hand could broadcast worldwide - heck, when I still had to take my undeveloped film to the store and wait a week to see any images at all, naked or not. But, once again, you have brought to the table a thoughtful and thought-provoking perspective to what it is like to mother with gentleness and fierceness, with anxiety and fearlessness in a world overloaded with too many choices, too much evil, yes, but also too much joy not to revel in every single day with your sweet little ones. I send you, as always, much love.
