How people parent is a case-by-case basis. Granted, there are some things you absolutely shouldn’t do where kids are concerned, but generally speaking, how one decides to raise one’s spawn is entirely up to each respective parenting party. Something that has child-rearers severely divided is whether or not to publish photos of their children on social media. Some are against, claiming it’s inappropriate to expose kids in that fashion; others find it perfectly fine. What do you think?

Social media’s negative effects have been well documented by pretty much everyone. Posting your children from when they’re babies (or, in some cases, sonograms) doesn’t exactly seem like it’ll contribute much to their wellbeing. It’s also really, really annoying.

Plus, a seemingly innocent post of your child opens them up to nefarious, unseen forces that could be looking at them on the internet. Keep them safe, keep their faces private.

People are free to post whatever they’d like, kids or no kids. It’s not uncommon for people to post the personal, like weddings and the like. Why not upload a picture of little Bartholomew (smugly) winning his spelling bee? If people don’t like it, they don’t have to like it. Not your problem, champ.

Not to mention, in all the whiney and dark Tweets out there, sometimes it’s just nice to see a proud parent post something about their child. It doesn’t have to be doom and gloom all the time, you know.
