    I don’t really see why this is a big deal? Unless she’s taking inappropriate pictures or selling them or some other weird thing, what’s the harm in her showing people?

    Its totally up to you. If it didn’t bother you that she does – you wouldn’t be asking.

    @g_g_dgjb:  Will some sort of harm come to you or your child if your parents see photos of said child? If so, then you should definitely speak up to your sister. But if not, this may not be an issue worth raising with her.

    I understand not having contact with them but why is it a problem if they see you baby? Strangers see your baby everyday

    @g_g_dgjb:  Then I guess you just answered your own question?

    @g_g_dgjb:  What is the reason you don’t have contact with your parents? Is this your choice? Their choice? A mutual thing?

    @g_g_dgjb:  wait–you are putting photos up on your FBOOK page of your child and you are concerned about who sees those photos? Once they are out in the public sphere, you have limited control over them despite what FBOOK tells you you can control.

    If that is a concern, don’t put up your own photos. And sure, don’t let her take photos.

    That just seems like common sense to me, although I don’t understand your basic concern, but I guess that’s another thread.

    @g_g_dgjb:  As you said its your baby your right. However you asked if you should allow your sister to and I said why not. With horrible parents its so easy to get caught up in all the little petty things and be constantly angry with them but its better to let the small things go and enjoy things with your family. 

    Im talking from experience

    What’s your reason for not wanting your parents to see pictures of your baby? And if you have them on FB, then anyone is free to see them. I don’t talk to my mom. I cut her out of my life. but I wouldn’t care if she saw pics of my child. I’ll probably put them on FB on purpose for her to see, to show what she’s missing out in my life. But it depends what’s your reason you lost contact with them.

    @g_g_dgjb:  I’m in the same predicament so I’m in tune with ur concerns. I let my sis take pics and show my fam, that’s the only way they see her anymore. Children have nothing to do with our issues. My goal is to try to overcome the hurt so my baby will know  my family. I agree with the pp as we need to let go of the small petty issues and deal directly with the elephant in the room.

    This isn’t really a question any person on weddingbee or anywhere else can answer for you. If you put up pictures on Facebook, people can see them. If you do not, people cannot. It’s up to you whether you want them up or not.
