Its a myth. If you think there is, find the name, item# of the law, and when where that law was passed. There is none.
Get over the old wives tales.

It is against the law to use photos of kids in scenes that would lead to demoralizing them, or making them appear sexual/provocative.

Kids in bathing suits at the beach...playing...is legal. Ask your local law department, your local legal librarian at the local state/provincial legal library.

Agreed - certainly here in the UK it's totally legal.

Although a large number of parents, teachers etc. seem to believe it's illegal or against Data Protection laws (it's not!)

However, I think the OP was referring to bans placed by schools, swimming pools and other bodies banning ALL photography
