The pros and cons of ‘sharenting’ | Life and style | The Guardian.

 

Are sharents – parents who blog, tweet and post pictures about all aspects of their children’s lives – doing their children harm by crossing the boundaries between public and private life? 

 

They have been dubbed “sharents” – the mums and dads who blog, tweet and post pictures from their children‘s lives – often simultaneously.
