When it comes to the safety of your kids, it’s never enough to be told once. Come to think of it, it’s not even enough to be told twice. So proud mamas, please take note of this. You’ve probably heard it before, but it wouldn’t hurt to be reminded of it again.
When it comes to sharing information about your kids, you’re all for it. Nothing will stop you from doing it. After all, sharing “too much information” or “TMI” for short, is something every proud mom is guilty of doing. I myself was guilty of TMI too. LOL
Thanks to social media, sharing TMI has become way too easy. These days, there’s such thing as digital TMI. Photos of kids are posted and shared liberally on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and whatever social network or app your heart desires.
With many parents wanting to show family and friends how great their kids are, it is no surprise that some parents are over sharing at the expense of privacy and online safety. The University of Michigan study found that:
“While 67% of parents said social media helped them learn from other parents, many also had safety concerns about sharing too much.”
There’s just no doubt that photos of kids are always cute and endearing but you need to be careful. In the midst of your eagerness to share, you might just be endangering your kids or somebody else’s kids.
