5. Is it an offence for parents to post nude childhood photos of their children without their consent?

It depends on the age of the child and whether it can be viewed as a “pornographic depiction”.  Where it was an image of the parent's child without wearing clothes and that such pictures were shared between the respective family members, it can be argued that this does not constitute an offence for child pornography if there is no reasonable cause to suspect such images to be child pornography and that the images were shared amongst the family for a genuine family purpose.
