I don't really see a huge problem with this.. the kids weren't dressed indecently, were they? Sounds like a goofy photo opportunity with your kids. Of course, I don't know the context of the photos, and I haven't seen them, but it could be innocent fun, right? Is it because the duct tape hurts to take off? or what?

Its duct tape on a child, not hot coals on their feet. Duct tape is definitely not a good thing for children of this age as a joke but I think people are exasperating this situation quite a bit.
Also it should be noted the children are still with family members. Where do you think the parents got their ideas from in the first place? Way to go child services!

What is wrong with those people!!!!!!!!!!
Duct tape is way too difficult to remove.
They should use something like first aid tape. That way if the cops roll up you can quickly let them loose.

I'm seriously starting to wonder if this isn't the tip of a very large iceberg.
The fact that people see nothing wrong in it to the extent that they're prepared to put pictures on Facebook has really given me pause for thought.
It's appalling. Not just the restriction of movement, not just the fact that it might hurt when the tape is removed but kids have no idea how long they're going to be left like that.
Time goes slowly for little ones and they don't have the ability to 'project' into the future the way adults or older kids do. They can't think 'Oh, I'll just keep still, this might only last for half an hour'. As far as they're concerned that's the rest of their lives that they might be like that, with no hope of escape.
How long before it really is the rest of one of their lives?
