Oversharenting: Giving Up Too Much Information About Your Kids Online
BOSTON (CBS) — As a proud mother of two Jill Cordes, a blogger for Parents.com, shares insights and sometimes intimate details
“First poop, first pee, diapers not diapers, circumcised not circumcised,” said Cordes.
And with all the social networking sites out there the daily events and accomplishments of Fia and Emmett are instantly available to the world.
“In this day and age, it’s really cool to express all that in this online forum,” said Cordes.
But who can blame her? Right?
“Your kids are going to get older, they are going to google all kinds of things,” said Cordes.
It’s a new term that fuses the words oversharing with parenting. Call it “Oversharenting.”
You know, TMI via technology.
“’Did I just oversharent?’” said Cordes.
But when are you oversharenting?
Carin Goldstein, also a parent blogger and a marriage and family therapist, believes when you’re over analyzing, you’re probably over doing it.
“If you have to think about, ‘Hmm is this crossing the line?’ don’t do it,” she said.
