What You Shouldn't Share About Your Kids On Social Media
Don't share everywhere you are, everything you're doing, all of the timeBryson's feet have grown two sizes in two weeks so we are back at Foot Locker in the Oxford Mall! Checking in all the time gives away your location. When you are home, making public what is otherwise private information about your residence is also a threat. Security should be a first priority. Just like you would instruct your child not to tell a stranger where they live, you should take the same advice into consideration.
Don't share details about your child that could be used to access personal informationThere have been multiple warnings against posting pictures of plane tickets, passports, driver licenses and personal information. Personal details like birth dates, ages, hospital locations, and other profile indicators could be used by hackers.
Don't ask for the public's help in shaming your childGarnering support and validation for being right as a parent is a sought after pastime. Viral photos and videos go around of parents punishing their children through social media in order to prove a point. Though the merits of transparency might be admirable, the content of public shaming can be damaging to them now and in the future. If you happen to tag your child in the video or reveal any of those personal details, a potential employer could find that in the future. Good , you might think now. Sorry , you'll probably think later.
Most importantly, don't post about your child's addiction struggles, treatment experience, or their recovery without their explicit permission. Recovery is anonymous and deeply personal. At Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center, we bring the family together through life-cleansing, foundation-building recovery and academic support.
