You might not be the culprit, but we all know someone who’s guilty of posting photos of their kids, nieces or nephews.

Usually, it’s a constant thing… like, we get it, you love your children. But guess what… it’s time to stop!

Law expert Eric Delcroix has predicted that children could soon sue their parents who post photos of them on social media, whether it be FacebookTwitter or Instagram.

He told Le Figaro newspaper, “in a few years, children could easily take their parents to court for publishing photos of them when they were younger.”

It makes total sense when you think about it. The children might not want certain stages of their life photographed and plastered all over the internet for people to see. Parents could be breaching their kids’ right to privacy.

Yeah, it’s kind of a mean thing to sue your own parents. But who knows, if you’re a Mum or Dad, you might be paying your child some seriously pricey compensation down the track.
