Kids Putting Foot Down On Parents Posting Their Pics To Social Media
You might think kids are sharing too much on social media, but in many cases it's parents who are doing it -- with kids complaining that their moms and dads are revealing way too much.
For 14-year-old Lillian Durben of Silverlake, Washington, her mom Kate was posting photos of her without permission.
"I was very upset," Lillian told ABC News' Good Morning America.
Kate explained, "I justified it by saying, 'It's fine, it's a cute picture. Why wouldn't she want me to share it?'"
"It really wasn't the picture I was upset about," Lillian explained. "...I just was hurt [she posted] after I clearly didn't want her to."
Even celebrity moms have found themselves in hot water. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was recently scolded by her daughter, Apple, after posting a photo of her on Instagram.
Jodi Gold, a child and adolescent psychologist, said parents of middle-schoolers and above should get consent from their children before posting.
"We're all on social media and all of our kids are on social media, so we're now going to have to navigate the parental-child relationship [there]," Gold told GMA.
She added, "The naked [baby] pictures in the bathroom are really cute, but will the 20- or 25-year-old children really appreciate them? Probably not."
