Parents are becoming more comfortable with sharing their children in the online world, but is it safe?
Parents of today are living in a different world than their parents did,
and an online presence continues to be more important than ever.
However, there are risks to this as well.
According to Security, the Wall Street Journal was the first to use the term “sharenting” back in 2012.
This act may have become so “normal,” that the risks of it can be barely recognizable.
When Security did a survey about the habits of parents online,
it found that over 80% of parents used their children’s real names.
Why wouldn’t they? They assume their pages are just for their families and friends, however,
8 in 10 parents said that they noticed they have followers that they have never met.
If you want to share pictures and information of your children online,
keep the details vague or out altogether.
Another large concern is back to school.
Consent is a very important topic that all moms are teaching their children
be an active part of their digital presence online.
