In the photo, Kardashian West is seen from behind in front of a mirror, wearing only black workout leggings and an undone bra. Much of the controversy had to do with how people interpreted the photo to be highly sexualized; some Instagram commenters even accused Kardashian of setting a poor example in allowing her daughter to snap the nearly nude photo. How a mother or father chooses to teach their children about how to be comfortable in their own bodies—including about sexuality and consent —is up to them, and no parent should feel the need to justify themselves to anyone else. Meet the Expert. Gayle Peterson, PhD, is a family therapist who specializes in family development and prenatal counseling. For instance, if a father is uncomfortable with his wife being naked around their kids, their children are going to pick up on his discomfort. And because American children tend to be exposed to sexualization in the media at that age, Peterson says they're "probably better off with some sense of privacy, but obviously that may change depending on the family and the children involved. When I reached out to members of the private MyDomaine Moms Facebook group to find out what other parents thought about the subject of parental nudity in front of children, the message across the board was loud and clear: Let's put an end to shaming.
This resource sheet provides information about safety and good practice when images of children and young people are displayed online. It outlines the legal obligations for Internet users who post images of children and young people on the Internet, and some of the emerging issues associated with the displaying of online images by children and young people. Guidance is also provided for supporting children and young people to be safe online. Throughout this paper, a child or young person refers to a person under the age of 18 years. The Internet has become a popular communication tool for children and young people, as well as adults, businesses and organisations. There are a range of reasons why people or organisations might wish to publish images of people online, including for recording, documenting and advertising or for promoting an organisation's activities and experiences. Organisations involved with children and young people, such as sporting and performing arts groups, often include photos or visual recordings of children and young people on their websites to promote their activities or services. Many children and young people also share images of themselves and their friends on social networking websites such as Facebook, and on their own blogs and web pages. The accessibility of the Internet and the increasing popularity of social networking sites for both young people and adults has made the sharing and disseminating of images very easy. This has resulted in concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people online, and protection of their privacy.
Natural law Latin : ius naturale , lex naturalis is law that is held to exist independently of the positive law of a given political order, society or nation-state. As determined by nature, the law of nature is implied to be objective and universal;  it exists independently of human understanding, and of the positive law of a given state , political order , legislature or society at large. Historically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature to deduce binding rules of moral behavior from nature's or God's creation of reality and mankind. The concept of natural law was documented in ancient Greek philosophy , including Aristotle ,  and was referred to in Roman philosophy by Cicero. The School of Salamanca made notable contributions during the Renaissance. Modern natural law theories were greatly developed in the Age of Enlightenment , combining inspiration from Roman law with philosophies like social contract theory. It was used to challenge the divine right of kings , and became an alternative justification for the establishment of a social contract , positive law , and government —and thus legal rights—in the form of classical republicanism. Conversely, the concept of natural rights is used by others to challenge the legitimacy of all such establishments.
