Posting pictures of our kids online

"Do you wish there more pictures of you as a tween? Probably not. Think about your top ten most embarrassing moments as a tween and imagine if there were pictures to record each of your failings. Or hairstyles. Shared. With everybody."

Some really good points to consider as my kids enter this next phase of childhood. I generally do not post pictures of them in a public forum, such as this one, although I do post on FB where I have a reasonably small list of people who can see it. I think this website is actually quite a good resource.

What is your policy around posting pictures of kids? How are you "raising digitial natives?"

    I don't mind posting pictures if it's here or facebook. All of my friends on facebook are either family or I've known them for a long time. I don't mind all the digital-ness of our lives these days. I know some parents fight it; they limit screen time, don't ever get video games, discourage use of the internet until the pre-teen years or more. I don't, though, really. Our world is moving in a more technological direction.

      Oh, Christina, that is sad. I don't think the question is whether we should take pictures, but whether we put them up there for all the world to see. Things are just very different now than they were when we were kids.

        I am pretty choosey. I will for blog posts and here but I really do limit how many photos I post of our children. I don't like Facebook's policy about photos (at least my understanding of it) but do post occasional photos there, but usually for blog business purposes.
