Should You Post Photos of Your Kids on Social Media?

3 Aug

We share basically everything about our lives on social media nowadays. And it has become norm for parents to share news, updates, and photos of their children’s achievements.

 But is it safe?

Please be cautious because occasionally some bad things can happen when you post photos on social media, but the trick is to stay vigilant about how you share.
Here are some steps you can make to make sure that your children are protected when you post photos of them on the Internet.

1) Location

Turn your smartphone location off when taking pictures of your kids. If not, the smartphone will geotag the location and categorise the pictures based on the location where the picture was taken at.
Also, when uploading photos of your kids, select “NO” when Facebook or Instagram ask if you would like them to tag your current location. This is to protect your children so that people won’t be able to tell the location where the pictures are uploaded.

 2) Privacy Setting

It is easy to custom your privacy settings in most social media platforms. You can choose and set the privacy controls for any albums that contains your children’s pictures. Allow only family members or close friends whom you trust to view them.

3) Don’t “Sharenting” Too Much

“Sharenting” is a new term that describes parents that overshare of photos of their children on social media. If you have been oversharing, now’s the time to curb that habit:

 1) Don’t share photos that reveal personal information such as:

– Your child wearing school uniform that spells the name of their school.

– Your child’s full name and birth date.

 2) Avoid posting embarrassing pictures of your kids.

Remember that facial recognition technology can identify a person from a digital image. 10 years down the road, your pictures may still be available online. Your child could be made fun of at school. 20 years later, prospective employers could come across a compromising photo that could damage your child’s reputation!

Happy “sharenting”!

My Perfect Day

23 Jul

Having children had transformed my life at a cellular level.

“If you were wise enough to know that this life would consist mostly of letting go of things you wanted, then why not get good at the letting go, rather than the trying to have? These exotic revelations bubbled up involuntarily and I began to understand that the sleeplessness and vigilance and constant feedings were a form of brainwashing, a process by which my old self was being molded, slowly but with a steady force, into a new shape: a mother. It hurt. I tried to be conscious while it happened, like watching my own surgery. I hoped to retain a tiny corner of the old me, just enough to warn other women with. But I knew this was unlikely; when the process was complete I wouldn’t have anything left to complain with, it wouldn’t hurt anymore, I wouldn’t remember.”
Miranda July

The biggest part of motherhood transformation for me, is about discovery (or re-discovery). The world has been made entirely new by the presence of my children in it. I had forgotten how wonderful and magical fireworks are. I am as surprised as them every time we go exploring through the little garden and find bright green caterpillars resting on the leaves. It’s beyond imagination that we should be so lucky to blow bubbles in the yard and spot airplanes flying through the sky. And sometimes, when we are very lucky, a red dragonfly would land beside us. The world is insanely, incomprehensively amazing when you are being directed by a three-year-old and one-year-old.

Everything about the world is just so beautiful.

And a perfect day for me, is able to spend time with them, tell them stories and laugh over tiny silly things: such as when someone sneeze and we will all giggle and say bless you!

(I know, it all sound a bit boring and cliché, but being a mother makes you look at life rather differently.)

I no longer stick to my own agenda and the urge of chasing productivity has lost almost entirely. I am humbled. I just want to express a relatively small portion of me to the world, to love people well, to spend time with those that are important in my life. So motherhood constricted me, but it also makes me focus. Never in my life I am so clear about what really matters and what doesn’t.

Some days, I feel stronger and wiser than I have ever been.

Some days, I feel so stretched out and weak.

Some days, it is just perfect.

Like this particular day we spent cuddling in the hotel room and celebrated Annabelle’s 1st birthday.

Sometimes I would think about how I used to be before the children come, especially at night when everyone is asleep. And I realized that I don’t really remember my old self. Motherhood is the beginning of permanent transformation. I did it three years ago and it is the most amazing blessing I’ve ever known.

Thank you so much for reading.

God bless you.
