The Ethics of Posting the Private Events of aChild’s Life

The Ethics of Posting the Private Events of aChild’s Life

As fun as it is to share all of our kids’ funny stories and embarrassing mishaps, we need to think of their right to privacy and not just our right to share.”

By Myra Hamilton  (The Good Man’s Project December 29, 2013)

Read this article a few days ago.  I thought it was important enough to share.  Many of our readers know how we feel regarding  the trend toward posting the intimate happenings of a child’s life.  Myra Hamilton’s article reflects our feelings.  We hope that after reading Myra’s article people will think twice before posting information that may affect their child forever!

  1. I posted this article after years of noticing article after article posted by well-meaning parents, relatives and caregivers. These articles were accompanied by photos of innocents on the toilet, or in situations that are meant for family members only. These kinds of “funny” or intimate moments can easily be archived for family memories in scrapbooks or in private journals. That way, if a child wants the world to see, they can make that informed decision at an appropriate age.
