  3. 3. 1. No legal repercussions for eavesdropping on your children? A new exception to the state’s eavesdropping law gives parents the right to supervise and monitor the electronic accounts of their children without fear that the child will file lawsuit against them. House Bill 3038
  4. 4. 2. School cannot ask for children's social media passwords The Privacy in the School Setting Act prohibits a college or university from requesting or requiring a student or his or her parents to provide a password to a student’s account or profile on a social networking website.

  5. 5. 3. If you have joint custody, YOU should be the first option for temporary care of your child This law states that if the parent responsible for the care of a child needs to find temporary care for the child, they must first offer the option of temporary care to the other parent before hiring a babysitter. House Bill 2992

  7. 7. 5. Under 18? No more tanning for you. Under previous Illinois law, young people were allowed to tan with their parents’ permission.

The new law prohibits all commercial tanning facilities from allowing people younger than 18 to tan unless they have a doctor’s prescription. Underage tanning in private homes is still allowed. House Bill 188
