Sharenting: How Much Is Too Much?

In the 21st century, social media has become an integral part of our daily lives, permeating every aspect. Sharenting has become more prevalent. It refers to the practice of parents publicizing large amount of sensitive content about their children on social media platforms, e.g. by posting photos, videos or sharing personal stories. In so doing, parents can stay connected with the outside world and gain community support. However, sharenting may have undesirable impact on children, e.g. shaping these children’s digital identities and intrusion of their rights and individual boundaries.

In this presentation, we will understand the phenomenon of Sharenting from the perspective of Bowen theory. The presenter will discuss how both the parents and children’s differentiation of self, family emotional processes and the societal emotional processes come into play in this phenomenon of sharenting. She will also discuss insights on how to be mindful parents in the digital age without crossing the line into over-sharenting.
