TRIBE chat: Can children REALLY consent to being online?
As social beings we like to connect with each other, from sharing stories to sharing photos. As we continue the discussion of consent and trust, is it a breach in boundaries to post content online of our children who may or may not fully consent?

About the event
These past few years we’ve all gone through a transformation. Mine has been to get more grounded in family. Im practicing being more present and intentional with my relationships, especially with my husband and children.
The last season we decided to get grounded by turning off tablets, tvs and limiting phones.
That did us all a favor. We built new connections and mended broken ones.
I still took some pics and videos for yall of course. And one day while filming my daughter said, “I don’t want to take a picture of me.”
Now she could’ve been in a grumpy mood, which is her baseline til about 4 in the afternoon (Come on Mr. Sun! Shine on us!). But I’ll give her credit that she’s fully aware of her feelings, likes and dislikes. It’s just now I’ve been able to understand her communicating those feelings to me.
It got me thinking 🤔
What about the other times she’s been on Social media, before she was even aware that a photo or video was taken?
Not only that but…what about when i talk about my current experiences as a mom and she becomes an adult and looks back on it.
Will she have the same lense as me?
How will she feel?
Will she be thankful that i documented her life or will she be embarrassed?
So the question posed is…
Is it ok to film and display your children online without their full understanding and consent?
Join us for a Tribe chat where we talk about real life decisions like this.
