How can we respect our child’s rights in the digital space?
Your child depends on you and your decisions

In addition to safety, consent is also an important issue. Every child has the right to express an opinion on matters that affect them and it is our responsibility as parents to raise the children in a way that respects them (and their rights).

Our child is dependent on us and on our decisions

A child’s opinion (according to the law) must be taken into account according to their age and capacity. The situation is particularly difficult when the child is so young that s/he is completely dependent on us, that is, s/he is at the mercy of our decisions, awareness, protection, and care. There are parents who, for this reason, choose not to post any pictures of their child or they make sure that the child’s face is not visible or recognisable in the pictures.

Safety on the internet

Every child has the right to be safe online and, of course, the right to get prepared to use the internet that s/he can take advantage of the opportunities offered by technical progress without any risk.

With good settings (for example, only those who are really part of the family can see the pictures), conscious sharing, and by keeping the child’s safety in mind and later treating the child as a partner, we will be able to be good enough parents in the digital world as well.
