What is Sharenting?

‘Sharenting’ is a combination of the words ‘parent’ and ‘sharing’ and is a term used to describe the over-use of social media by parents to share information online relating to their children such as pictures, information and private moments. 

A child’s digital footprint very often now begins when they are in the womb. Many parents choose to announce their pregnancy news on social media using their baby’s first scan picture.

Exposure to Inappropriate Content Online
Online Safety

One of the main concerns a parent may have around their child’s online activity is potential exposure to inappropriate content.

Having access to the vast array of content and information which the online world presents carries many benefits, as well as risks. While there are some potential dangers to children online,  there are many things you as a parent can do to help ensure your child is safe.
