sharenting

While we as parents want to share every new development of our kids with those we love, it’s important to understand the dangers of too much sharenting online.

Sharenting:

Sharing personal information and/or photos of your kids on social media.

A study conducted by the University of Michigan examined parent’s social media sharing habits that involved their children. It found that:

56% of parents shared (potentially) embarrassing information about their children online.

51% provided information that could lead to an identification of their child’s location at a given time.

27% of participants shared (potentially) inappropriate photos.

KIWI suggests getting educated on the risks of oversharing and creating a social media policy for your family. For more information on sharenting, visit Common Sense Media.
