Speaker: Stacey Steinberg, Author of Growing Up Shared: How Parents Can Share Smarter on Social Media and What You Can Do To Keep Your Family Safe in a No-Privacy World
It has never been easier to share our lives online—from meals to selfies and relationship statuses to locations, information about our daily activities flows freely. But what about our right to share our kids’ lives? In today’s age of “sharenting”, striking the right balance between engaging in online communities and respecting a child’s privacy and safety can be difficult. In Growing Up Shared, Stacey Steinberg, law professor, mother, and expert on the intersection of social media and parenting, shares her insights.
From her years of research, Steinberg outlines what parents should and should not feel comfortable sharing, while providing suggestions and ideas for a wide range of approaches, including:
- How we can benefit from sharing, and how screens can connect us
- The dangers of oversharing
- How to model behavior online
- The difference in how parents and kids view online sharing
- The importance of educating kids about technology
Engaging, approachable, and with concrete takeaways for today’s parents, Growing Up Shared investigates the benefits and risks of sharing our kids’ lives on social media, and will help any parent decide on the right path for their family to follow in the online world.
