Panel to Explore ““Children’s Privacy Rights Against Their Parents”
The Deacon's Bench ^ | July 20, 2013 | Deacon Greg Kandra

Posted on 07/20/2013 2:06:07 PM PDT by NYer

This flitted by on my Twitter feed, and really gave me pause, from the Association of American Law Schools:

The AALS Section on Defamation and Privacy invites papers for its program on “Children’s Privacy Rights Against their Parents” for the Annual Meeting, to be held on January 2-5, 2014.

Topic Description: Electronic surveillance technology and social media have significantly changed childhood in the Twenty-First Century. The digitization and electronic monitoring of children have altered the parent-child relationship and have significant ramifications for children’s privacy. At the same time, privacy scholars’ discussion of children’s privacy has focused mainly on the privacy of children from third parties, such as companies that collect personal information on the Internet. Similarly, family law scholars have paid little attention to children’s privacy, limiting the discussion to medical decision-making, and particularly abortion decisions. Yet, few have explored whether children have a general right to privacy against their parents. The panel will explore areas of tension involving privacy rights of children against their parents. Panelists will address, among other issues, the impact of parental electronic surveillance online and offline, such as GPS monitoring and use of software to monitor online surfing. It will also explore potential parental privacy threatening activities online, such as posting information on children on Facebook or intervening in the creation of a child online persona. This program is co-sponsored by the Section on Juvenile and Family Law and the Section on Children and the Law.

The utter insanity of evil spreads...

For Christians, the family is the nuclear small church community. It is also a great blessing to healthy societies.

No wonder the evil one is attacking it from every angle.
