Babies and toddlers are the most wonderful creatures.

婴幼儿无疑是世界上最美妙的生物。

Chubby, soft, cute and without any of the self-consciousness or inhibitions which will one day turn them into sulky teenagers.

胖胖的,软软的,天真可爱,没有任何自我意识或是抑制力会使他们变成生闷气的青少年。

So as they explore the world and go on their own little journey of self-discovery they provide parents with endless moments of joy which are perfect for the family album.

正当他们探索着世界并在自我发现的旅途中前进的时候,父母感受到的是无尽的欢喜,而这正是家庭相册的完美素材。

But now we are in the 21st century, there is no such thing as the family album.

然而,21世纪的我们并没有家庭相册这种东西。

Photographs rarely make it from camera phone to a physical photograph.Instead the photo album is Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

照片很少会从拍照手机中洗出来,而替代相册的是Facebook、Instagram和Twitter这些东西。

 With one click of the mouse the adorable picture of your toddler playing in the sand pit for the first time, splashing in the paddling pool, or digging in the soil can be shared with the world in an instant.

只需轻点鼠标,宝贝的喜人照片便会瞬间分享给这个世界,第一次在沙坑玩耍,在泳池中打水仗或是在土堆上挖洞。
Which is exactly what proud mum Courtney Adamo did when she captured the moment her wellie-wearing daughter Marlow lifted up her dress to reveal her gorgeous little pot belly.

这正是Courtney Adamo,一个以孩子为荣的母亲,在抓拍到她的女儿Marlow正穿着威灵顿长筒靴并掀起裙子露出她令人愉快的的大肚子时候做的事情。

Yet just 24-hours later the mum-of-four found that the image had been deleted and her Instagram account shut down as the picture had breached the site's decency rules.

然而,仅仅24小时后,这个4个孩子的母亲发现照片已经被删除了,而且她的Instagram账户被关闭,因为她上传的照片违反了网站的得体标准。
What is the world coming to when a mum can't share a completely innocent picture of her beautiful baby?

如果一个母亲不能分享她漂亮孩子的天真照片,这个世界会变成什么样子?(是无辜的照片还是照片内容是天真的……搞不清)                                                           

Little Marlow wasn't revealing anything other than her perfect belly and her chubby little legs.

小Marlow只是露出了她可爱的肚子和肉嘟嘟的小腿而已。

Yet it is seemingly fine for celebrities like Rihanna to post suggestive virtually naked pictures of themselves on the site.

但对于像Rihanna这样的名流在贴出极具暗示性而几乎裸体的图片的时候,似乎却是毫无问题的。

Instagram argues that they have to have policies in place to protect young children , but admits that in this case they got it wrong.

Instagram称,他们必须有相关政策来保护儿童,但在这件事上是他们的过失。

Now we all know that the Internet can be a dangerous place. But why should a minority of perverted individuals ruin the fun for the rest of us?

现在我们知道互联网可能是一个危险的地方。但为什么要因为少数行为不当的人而毁掉其余所有人的快乐呢?

But on the other hand, should we as parents think twice before posting pictures of our kids online?

而另一方面,我们做父母的,是不是在上传孩子照片的时候应该三思而后行?
Somewhere in my mum's attic is an album filled with pictures from family holidays gone by, my sister and I playing happily in the garden in just our bikini bottoms.

在我妈妈阁楼的某个地方,有一个装满了过去家庭节日时照片的相册,那时候我妹妹和我只穿着比基尼裤在花园里愉快地玩耍。

All innocent fun, even more so as the only people who are ever likely to see those pictures are family.

所有这些天真的乐趣,更多的是只可能给家庭成员看到。(even more so as是什么句式,谁帮我分析一下)                                     
Would I share pictures of my half-naked children online? Probably not.

我会把我半裸着的孩子的照片上传到网上吗?大概是不会的。

While I agree that the picture of Marlow bearing her belly was totally adorable and Instagram were wrong to take it down, I do think that we as parents have a responsibility to recognise that the Internet is not a family album.

然而,我承认Marlow挺着肚子的照片的确是很可爱的,而Instagram的做法是错误的。不过作为父母,我觉得我们有责任意识到互联网并不是
家庭相册。
Only ever post words or pictures online that you are happy for the whole world to see – perverts and all – as that is exactly who can and will see them.

除非你在网上发布的文字和图片是乐于让全世界看到的——包括那些色狼,因为他们确实有权力和意愿去看。(还是句子结构不是太清晰,尽管明白句子说的是什么,谁给婆剖析下  )
