Questions

I've been thinking and wondering lately, how will this generation be affected by their parents sharing everything about them on the internet?  Our kids lives are being broadcast on facebook  and personal blogs.  How will our children feel about this when they are older? Will it affect them at all? Will it feel like an invasion of their privacy or will it simply be the norm? At this point I'm not for or against it but as with all things I think that it is something to think about.  I shouldn't do it blindly without considering consequences simply because it seems normal.  Everyone's doing it.  This is the first generation that will have to deal with this.  Maybe it will be more of an issue in the teen years.  Then again are we teaching them to overshare and be under cautious?  I'm interested to hear your feedback in the comments. Please feel free to weigh in.

  1. This is an interesting thing to think about. It's one of the reasons why I have a private blog rather than a public one, but even having that doesn't excuse me from disregarding altogether what I choose to share and what I don't. I think I tend to go on the side of sharing too much. So thank you for the reminder to make sure I am only sharing things that would not embarrass my daughter or feel like an invasion of her privacy when she is older! :)
