Transcript for Parents face backlash from their own children for posting on social media
First we have a parenting alert about a trend called oversharenting when you overshare on social media and this time it's the kids who are complaining. Concerned mom and dad are revealing too much. Juju, tell it all. In the olden days when your kid go something great or hi lair house, you maybe picked up the phone but now we post about it. When does posting about your child or oversharenting become an invasion of their privacy? For the mother and daughter you're about to meet. That question turned into a showdown. Oh, hi. Reporter: From first steps all the way to graduation, parents love to post about their kids on social media, but this morning, some parents facing backlash from their own children after oversharing. To be honest, I was very upset. Reporter: 14-year-old Lillian asked her mother not to post any photos of her without permission. But her mom Kate admits she just couldn't resist. I knew she didn't want me to share them. I justified it by saying, oh, it's fine, it's a cute picture, like why wouldn't she want me to share that or why would she care because she looks cute. I thought she looked cute. But that's not really the issue, is it? It really wasn't the picture I was upset. That she posted it after I clearly like didn't want her to. And I had agreed not to. Yeah. So. Reporter: All of these photos were approved by Lillian for us to use. Mom Kate has since pulled down the photos in question and they've been deleted. Actors Gwyneth paltrow recently finding herself in muddy waters posting this image with her daughter apple who quickly scolded her, mom, we have discussed this. You may not post anything without my consent. This is a huge issue. We're all on social media and all of our kids are on social media so we're now going to have to navigate the parental/child relationship in the realm of social media. Reporter: Jody Gould says parents of middle schoolers and above should get concept from their kids before posting and warns that when your kids are too young to care, use discretion. The baby pictures are lovely but the naked pictures in the bathroom are really cute but with a 20, 25-year-old child really appreciate them? Maybe not. Reporter: It's not just photos, recently an anonymous middle schoolers vented on Reddit. My mom posted literally every aspect of my life. If we get in a fight she's on Facebook asking for advice. I feel like I have absolutely no privacy. I can't talk to my own mother for fear she'll post it on social media. I'm her child, not her dog. Parenting 101 is about keeping the dialogue open. As long as your kids are talking to you you're doing a good job as a parent. It is very dangerous if you start posting information about bass's going on with you and your child because you will shut down that dialogue immediately and you will lose your child's trust. Reporter: As for Lillian and her mom -- When it's very clear that it's something they don't want you to do, damage could be done if you don't -- if you don't pay attention to that and show them that, okay, I respect that. It's not my story to tell anymore. It's something she wants to have control over. You're your own person. You always were. But you, you know, now she's got her own image to manage. It is all about that control. Teenagers want to control their images and their reputation rightly so, now mom Kate says she has stopped posting anything about Lillian without her permission but the irony is that many of these bad behavior posts get a lot of likes which just reinforces that bad behavior, but as parents, maybe before we teach our kids the difference between what's appropriate and not, we have to look in the mirror, right? Okay. So you have three adorable sons. What's your policy? Well, I get permission, not just about image, I have to clear it and then I have to get the caption cleared and, in fact, I think we have one image of my son I ran by him because he thought the caption was funny, the caption was like proof that he never puts his phone down and he was okay with that, but the truth is, I'm surprised at the images or the captions that get rejected and a lot of them do. So I think, oh, it's cute, blah, blah, blah, it's not cute. It's really up to them to decide because it's their digital footprint for a long time. You're communicating. Absolutely. What you said, juju. All right, ginger, what about you? With those We are starting in the
