Millennials Parenting in the Era of Social Media

My latest on

An excerpt:
Clearly feeling scrutinized and judged IS NOT a 21st-century thing – it’s a human thing. Sometimes it’s even a sin thing. The only difference with parenting now is that oversharing can be done instantly via social media for the whole world to see.

The truth is, every generation has done parenting before! The terrain of Instragram and Facebook and other social media is not the same terrain that moms faced even ten years ago. It’s much smoother. After all, you can unplug a computer and put down the iPhone. In the last 100 years, new moms have dealt with recessions, many wars and even the Great Depression. Putting food on the table trumps getting upset over a pretty Pinterest post.
