Conversations Live: Sharenting

In this age of social media, it’s not uncommon for people to share aspects of their lives, not just with friends and family, but with the public. Parents enjoy sharing photos and video of the children. But what happens when parents overshare the lives of their children? What are the consequences, especially when it involves sensitive content? On this episode of Conversations Live, we’ll look at sharenting.
