You are a parent, you are engaged in social media, you are proud of it and you may have overexposed your children with pictures and videos. Welcome to the Sharenting era!

What is Sharenting?

Sharenting is a peak and a combination of sharing and raising. According to an American study around 569 parents from 0 to 4-year old children in the University of Michigan, more than half of the mothers and a third of fathers share their children´s life before they are born. Have you ever thought of this being a risk in the future? How will the child react when he/she is consented? The majority has an extended digital track, created by their own parents”, signed by Sarah Clark.

As you know, babies and children are the major stars or celebrities of social media, who has seen YouTube videos of children falling off the swing, running into toys, getting hurt, laughing or crying? Parents who post these types of videos are not aware these videos can become viral and ruin their child´s life.

Ex CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, has confirmed in some interviews the following: “in the meantime we will have online information about embarrassing teenage pictures.”
