There are always news items and discussions about children and alcohol, so thought I would touch upon it….gently!
Children on the internet.
Going to Alfie’s assembly the other day triggered this as no photos were allowed until the very end and none were to be put on social media. I realise this is a very touchy subject with many in the yes or no camp. I can understand schools going with the NO social media rule as then that covers them.
I do not think there is any harm in it and my two daughters have no objections with me including their off spring in my blog posts with both of them also posting pictures from time to time. One daughter even saves all the blog post’s, I was very touched by that. Instagram is getting popular now as you just have your family or close friends on it and many post there instead of Facebook. I think if you are posting nice pictures it is like a photo album collected over the years on-line. My granddaughter Kara has many different folders on Facebook of all her friends and family and I think for that generation it is all very natural and that’s what you do.
Some mothers go with the argument that until the child is of an age that they can choose whether they want their picture all over the internet they are keeping it off. You also have the fear that the photos may be used for less savoury things but then you keep ALL your settings to private and make sure your friends are friends know not to share your posts.
What are your views? Very interesting subject, I think.
