Bath Tub Photos Spoil the Fun

Dear Mothering Heights,

With the [Demaree] family losing their children to Child Protective Services [for two weeks] for printing bath time pictures of their babies at Wal-Mart, is this something we should be concerned about? Should we resist taking pictures of them in the bath?

Dear Ashley,

Nothing like a family vacation to San Diego, a few pics of the kids in the bathtub and then boom--Wal-mart turns you into Arizona Child Protective Services and your children are taken away. Talk about post-vacation blues. Eventually, all charges were dropped and the kids were reunited with their parents, but what a nightmare! The Demaree family is now suing Wal-mart and the State of Arizona for what I am sure will be a sum worthy of a six-month vacation at the Montage.

So, feel free to take all the pictures you want of your kids, just don’t take them to a store for processing. Wal-mart has an ‘unsuitable print policy’ that allows them to police your photos. I am sure most photo processing places have similar policies. Honestly though, do you want other people and possible weirdoes checking out your family photos? If you want to do the cute baby in the bath pictures, invest in a photo printer. In the long run, it’s cheaper and worth the peace of mind.
