Should You Post Pictures Of Your Baby Or Child On Facebook And Instagram?

If you’re going to be posting pictures of your kids, you’ll need to control the number of people who see it. On Facebook, you can share with Friends Only, people that you’re also friends with in real life. Do the same on Instagram. Let your followers be people that you know personally and ensure that your account is private.

Protect your child’s digital footprint and their future. Start teaching your child about what they can and can’t post online.

If they’re old enough, 6 years and older, always ask them if it’s okay with them to have their photo posted online. Even if you’ve taken all the precautions mentioned above but your child doesn’t want their photo posted on Facebook or Instagram, don’t post it.

Photos Of Your Children That You Should Never Post Online

Don’t post photos of them when they’re sick, injured or in a bad mood. I bet you wouldn’t want anyone posting such photos of you!

Another no no is for photos where you’re shaming the child or the photos you’re posting might subject them to bullying.

Also, ensure that the images you post don’t have road signs, landmarks or any name that might show your child’s location.

Last but not least, make sure that you don’t post photos of any unsafe activities or an unsafe environment your child is in.

You might find it funny, but the online community doesn’t have all the facts regarding that image and it may be used to criticize you or even discriminate your child.

When we want to post photos online, we pick them out carefully so that we can depict a certain image.

Why don’t we do the same with our children’s photos? I believe the best option is to keep your child’s photos off your Facebook and Instagram account.

  1. Your children are the greatest gift God will give to you, and their souls the heaviest responsibility he will place in your hands. Take time with them, teach them to have faith in God. Be a person in whom they can have faith. When you are old, nothing else you’ve done will have mattered as much.
