There’s a video doing the rounds at the minute of a two-year old having a tantrum. The responses range from the predictable viral game of pass-the-parcel in the name of bland entertainment, while the more self-regarding sites have ushered in a few revered talking heads to give some consideration to parental responses to toddler tantrums. Which is all very harmless and right-on and will appeal to the mass parenting reading market. But this curmudgeon is sitting tight with a face on her like a badger’s arse and a curled lip for someone to “weigh in” on the issue of children’s privacy, specifically their right to privacy on the net, irrespective of their age. Especially because of their age.
As you were.
I know I am out of kilter with so many, but every day I question what I am looking at online. Anything for a view, unless they really don’t for a moment believe their children have a right to privacy and a future without their babydays online following them.
Revenge will come when their parents are old and drooling. #LookwhatsillyGrandmadidtoday
Well there’s a Philip Larkin moment!!!
And another thing….
Had you there ho ho. Worry not, I read my little book of calm this morning.
Are you sure about that, cos I’ve just read your latest post 🙂
Oh yeah.. The Little Book of Calm the fuck down.
(You really don’t want to hear about my court summons)
Well, if you will get up to no good in the CCTV areas…..
I agree with you. The child has a right to privacy. That video will be there forever more.
I’m at my grumpiest and sanctimoniously insufferable when it comes to this lark. So I aim to keep my trap shut.
