We had, accidentally left an external tap on. It was connected to a spray hose and the water pressure had built up causing a split. That next water bill was a whopper.

While our definition of what constitutes 'oversharing' has softened over time, posting pictures of our kids on social media continues to ignite fierce debate. Seriously throwing their toys out of the pram are the teenagers suing their parents for invasion of privacy for sharing photos of them.

We want our kids to be real, and no one is real on social media . "I never put a picture of myself up when I'm struggling." "I just think [ it is important] to reinforce the notion it 's okay to fail. You may also choose to share photos of your children, but not ones which reveal their faces. Pause before you post.

While our definition of what constitutes 'oversharing' has softened over time, posting pictures of our kids on social media continues to ignite fierce debate.

Last month, midwife-turned-blogger Clemmie Hooper, who posts as @motherofdaughters, felt the wrath of Mumsnet, as users criticised her for 'cashing in' on her girls by using them in promotional Instagram posts. The vitriol was so extreme that Clemmie temporarily quit social media. She's not alone in having a change of heart on sharenting. Earlier this month, Kylie Jenner deleted all the images she'd posted of her five-month-old daughter Stormi. And it's not just mums taking umbrage.

  South Australian hospitals at crisis point, medical professionals warn Medical professionals are concerned that unsafe conditions in South Australia's public hospitals will only worsen with the onset of the winter peak period, as blockages preventing the admission of patients from emergency departments hits crisis point. Australian Nurses and Midwifery Federation state secretary Elizabeth Dabars said she would meet with Health Minister Stephen Wade next week and seek an update to his plans, as the situation across the health system was "untenable".

Children’s right to privacy from exposure on social media can often be undermined by their parents.

Seriously throwing their toys out of the pram are the teenagers suing their parents for invasion of privacy for sharing photos of them. In 2016, French authorities advised parents to stop uploading images of their kids because of a potential violation of their privacy and security rights (punishable with a £40,000 fine and up to a year in prison).

In January this year, in Rome, a mother was forced to delete all images of her son from Facebook and threatened with a £9,000 penalty if she shared any new shots as part of divorce proceedings.

But all the legal warnings aren't stopping the majority of us from putting our kids online. A survey by a baby photo agency found that, on average, a baby has his or her image uploaded to social media within 57.9 minutes of being born. By the age of two, 60 per cent of children have a digital footprint and, by five, the average parent will have posted more than 2000 shots. I'm one of those sharers.

Kids and Social Media - At What Age is it Okay ? But these days, parents also have to worry about what their kids might be doing on the internet. Social media is a draw for kids … it ’s cool, it ’s hip, it ’s so easy to share information- instantly.

4. Oversharing photos /videos of your children with everyone. As much as you’d like to share those wonderful shots you’ve taken of your kids and family on vacation or other places, we suggest being careful about what images you are sharing on social media .

Within a week of having my son Grey, I'd set up the account @mamalovesgrey, dedicated to my journey as a mother. Over the four months since, I've posted about my struggles to breastfeed, learning to cope with lack of sleep and suddenly having 34G breasts – as well as how my appreciation of my own mother, who was a single parent of two, has grown.

While my main personal account is all shoes, fashion shows and fancy holidays, I didn't want to glamourise my experiences with my baby. So, I've put up pictures of balancing a laptop beside my sleeping baby's head, when holed up in bed but still trying to meet a deadline to talk about the pressures of being a working mum. I also posted a picture of my 13-week-old son bawling in his bouncy chair. I knew it would be divisive but, if the standard stream of styalised parenting shots usually shared on social media is to be believed, babies don't cry.

Even aside from privacy concerns, sharing photos means involving your children in social media ’s erratic emotional economy.

The 6 pictures of children you should not post on social media . Before you post and tag those lovely pictures of your child’s birthday party or school outing on Facebook, be sure to check with the parents of other kids who might be in the photos if they are okay with this.

Like many new mums, I live a long way away from any family (my mum is in France and my brother and dad are in Germany). And, because I got divorced at 30 and lost a circle of friends, I don't have any close mates in London with older kids. So it's basically just me all day until 6.30pm, when my boyfriend gets home. Me trying to work out why my little boy is puking/screaming/ writhing in apparent pain (he has reflux). Without the support I received from my Instagram followers, I don't know how I'd have coped with those brutal early weeks.

But I did think long and hard about how I was going to feature Grey on social media. I didn't want my personal account to become baby spam and wanted at least one space where I wasn't knee-deep in nappies. Also, as I'd struggled to conceive and had found it difficult to see all those gorgeous bassinet and bump pictures on social media, I really wanted my followers to have the choice to 'opt in' to this new content. And yet, when I did become a mum, I realised that if we omit our kids from our online lives, we're obscuring the all-encompassing nature of motherhood and creating false expectations for other new mums.

What To Pack When You're Travelling With Little Kids

  What To Pack When You're Travelling With Little Kids I just returned from a trip to Europe with my husband's extended family.I'm can't yet say I'm a pro at globetrotting with kids, but I've been obsessively stealing tips from parents who are - particularly those who've mastered the art and science of packing. With this holiday, here are some things I'm so glad I brought along, and some that I wish I had thought of.

It 's a topic of debate that's been sparked after a mum asked whether she should continue sharing pictures of her kids on social media in case they might not like looking back at them when they're older.

It feels natural to share that joy with others, and social media has made that process effortless. (FYI to the photo hunters: Some of the photos you say are my daughter? They’re actually me as a kid !)

As founder of jewellery brand Lei Van Kash, Leila Kashanipour, says, 'My son is now the most important part of my life, and while I don't want to overdo it, I also don't want to hide that I'm now a mum.' Fashion stylist and blogger Alex Stedman of @thefrugality explains she's featured her daughter Peggy on her platform because, 'I'm currently spending 24 hours a day with her, so I'm sharing my journey as a mum a bit more than when I go back to blogging full-time.' However, she decided to steer clear of brand collaborations for now. 'I've promised myself so far that I won't use her in sponsored content and I'd definitely never want to rely on Peggy for likes (even though she gets way more engagement!).'

As for how Grey will feel in the future, I hope he'll understand that I needed to reach out to others going through the same things – something I believe has helped me avoid post-natal depression – and that my posts helped other women fee les alone in the long, sometimes intense days with their babies. I also hope he'll understand that by 'cashing in' on social media, I've been able to care for him full-time while providing for him. I haven't done any sponsored posts with him yet, only shoots, but I have a couple coming up soon. My policy for any collaboration involving him is that if there is something I think other women will benefit from discovering, I'd do it. Also, as with my personal account, I would always clearly state that it was a paid project.

Preschool nutrition 101: What and how much little kids should eat

A huge online conversation happens on social media as soon as a new episode of a popular show is broadcast. Any time you watch an episode of a dramatic TV show, your impulse is to share what you thought of it with your friends. In this article but I’m going to do my best to look at when it ’s okay to do

Sharing photos of kids seems to be pretty common on social media sites. It ’s fun to post videos and pictures of special events of your kids with family and friends. Social media makes it so easy and quick.

Money is so tight when you have young children that however you make ends meet should surely be applauded. Clemmie, for example, works for the NHS and has four mouths to feed. So she posts a few pictures of her kids online and gets paid for it – so what? How is that different from parents allowing their children to be used in ads? I'd also argue a lot of the venom directed at mum bloggers is really about envy – because which mum isn't looking for the kind of work-life balance that social media businesswomen have achieved?

The key, as ever, is restraint. While I may share images of my baby crying to honestly reflect what we're experiencing. I wouldn't post naked pictures. I'll always consider how he might feel in the future about things I post – crucial when you think about challenges ahead, like bed-wetting. I'll also avoid anything that could compromise his safety – especially geo-tagging. But if when my boy is older he doesn't like the pictures and asks me to remove them, I will.

Equally, I would never judge another parent for deciding to keep their child off social media. It's a personal choice. But for me, the advantages of being part of a community of supportive people – virtual, yes, but still people I feel connected to – outweighs the dangers of sharenting.
