    It's just another way of saying "We don't think these photographs are appropriate for Jack to share with his classmates."

    What do you mean by "a real English grammar rule"?
    "We don't think these photographs are appropriate for Jack to be sharing
    with his classmates."

    This sentence is correct, if that is what you are asking.
