Screen Retriever, is a monitoring program that allows parents to record and remotely view their children’s computer screen in real time.The program lets you “check-in” on your children from time to time without being too intrusive.
Instead, pre-teen models dreaming of becoming supermodels are preening for the cameras.
In addition, some have videos available for purchase for about .95. The sites post these suggestive poses with a disclaimer that apparently fits perfectly through a loophole in our laws. But aren’t these legal “pre-teen model” sites effectively getting away with child pornography-lite, and at the children’s expense?
These sites mention no contact information to hire the pre-teen models for future jobs, or availability of the clothes modeled for purchase—clearly showing the sites’ only profit coming from membership dues or video revenue. Each site has the identical disclaimer: All models on this site have their parents consent to appear on this site and have signed authorization and Model release papers. And of course I had to wonder, aren’t there laws to protect us from this sort of thing?
Child modeling, on the other hand, is a more recent phenomenon developed rapidly through internet Web sites that display portfolios of child models.
Parents who support pre-teen modeling say that this exposure helps develop these children into better adult models, and earns money for their college education.
