Social Media

My partner and I agreed to delete all social media and didn’t want pictures of our daughter posted. However everyone seems to be so obsessed with their phones, so her aunties, uncles, my friends and even grandparents have posted photos. I am a very awkward person and just don’t know what to say or do as I’m not really that happy with this. Any help or advice... please?!

Its kind of hard to say! For me I shared only what I want out there I never post a pic of my kids without a filter or with me or my SO in it and we never give enough space to get cropped out by someone without it being obvious the pic was altered. As far as your family let them no how you feel. The hard part is you can tell someone not post anything but if they do then they do all that happens is you get upset. I got to a point where my kids never left my side. So I never got a break after that. Make it known and be clear what you want.

We are the same way. We want to keep these early year moments to us and close family/friends. We asked family and friends not to post any pictures in social media. If my parents want to share the pictures with extended family or close friends, they can share them privately via message or text or refer them to the limited pictures that my husband and I post. You’re the parent so you should control how pictures get distributed. I know it’s tough but stay strong! Remember you’ll never regret NOT posting a picture. 🙂

We didn't allow any social media in our home till our oldest was 12. Each child has to learn rules and responsibility before they are allowed to even use the internet. After that they could only use it supervised. 12 and up to use it on a phone and even then thier account is hooked up to ours and we do random phone checks.

Hi I know what you mean I was exactly the same however I didn’t mind pictures as long as her face wasn’t in them I don’t however agree when people post pictures of their children in the bath and if they’re half naked to be honest social media is a virus I think and I not safe and I have made it very clear to all my friends and my family that I don’t want pictures of my daughter and they have respected that in the end it’s your child so your choice xx
