I know you all will be aware of the baby picture contest. My wife was so sharply against it but I said no big deal up to the extent she started a discussion on it on our family get together! Okay I too i am starting it with my fellow mylotters. Will you feature your your baby or its picture in such worldwide or local competitions.

I would enter my baby's pictures on a contest if I have a chance. But maybe your wife has her reasons. Maybe she has very big reasons to go against it that's why she can't help bringing it out on your family discussion. Have you asked her why? She's the mother and you should consider her opinion. She maybe sees an aspect that you are not seeing. It's essentials that parents agree on matters about the kids. This is also not a very great deal to argue with. If she does not want to for any reason, then don't do it.

it is true that we have differing opinions in life. for most of us, there is nothing wrong with this activity. however, there will always be some persons who will detest the idea of pictures being paraded in a competition, and babies at that! i agree with you, marisriel, that surely the wife has her reasons. and since that our friend's wife here has even blurted her views to the relatives, she had indeed made her views and points loud and clear already. now, i have been wondering as to what her reasons are.

Oh yes she actually put it out loud and clear simply because my siser has a very beautiful baby and the husband has fallen in love with the idea so in case my inlaw does not go ahead to put their baby in for the contest is the reason why she has to put it in the open. She actually gave some security reasons- us being in politics, etc.

I do not have any small children anymore but never entered them into photo contests. I do not have any particular reason why, just never did. None of my children, save the last, were comfortable with public display. My youngest should have been a movie star, she loves attention but in a positive way. I think that is a very personal decision that only parents or guardians can make. As far as it being safe, it is as safe as posting your picture on the internet I suppose.

I would put my baby picture in a contest but i wouldnt put my 6yr old daughter in one as i see there are alot of really sick people out there that would get off on a school age child but in dont think with a baby that can only just walk but yea i jst do baby pics more safer that way and i would ask if it is only keep with them and not spread all over the internet for all to see.

Okay there should be some sort of age limit to it, right? Think its more safer with baby but is it safer for the arents you know your name will be there and you will be there if she wins and some 'sick' people might cash in on that!

i do not see any problem here. let all those who feel like joining in, join in. there are some parents who are so proud to be showing the pictures of their babies to their friends and relatives. in fact, some will show those pictures to people they don't even know. now, here comes the opportunity to show it to everyone who loves to take a good sight of well taken baby pictures. now, grab that opportunity dear parents! go ahead and have a heyday. may you be the lucky one whose submitted picture will be judged the best.
