the kids. i don't know of any parent who intentionally would share something that put their kids in a bad light. >> a lot of parents share a lot of the stuff with a good heart. they think their child is adorable. they might think that silly dance is cute and funny. but it can be mortifying. we've all had friends, probably parents post stuff that we later look back on and feel a little bit embarrassed by. >> so should they be asking their kids, is it okay to post this? >> i think it depends on how old your kid is. even at the age of 10, they don't really understand the long-term effects. it's really up to parents to use their best judgment in terms of o post andshingimpact ater ilif getting into schools or jobs? >> absolutely. i mean, i think that just with the amount of time that these kids are sort of spending online and they have a much richer digital gloot print. i did a story on college admissions officers who almost by default google a lot of kids

8:36 am
and have their own accounts. should we be talking to the principals and teachers about what they post? >> schools, clubs, sports teams. a lot of these people, and you know, they are doing it out of the goodness of their heart. they want parents to feel involved and be able to check on instagram and see what they're up to but it's important for parents to have a conversation and say, you know, is this going to live forever? you know, are you tagging these kids names? and kind of having just opening that discussion. >> what's in some of these digital literacy programs? >> yeah, so there are more digital literacy programs aimed at educating kids themselves about their online footprint. making sure they're aware of the fact that they have a presence online. so they're not shocked by it later. and also just thinking critically about social platforms. parents won't know their kids are recently setting up an instagram account when they're 9. a lot of those literacy programs are aimed at educating schools and kids. >> now the kids are googling themselves and checking out to see what you're doing. you're saying to parents, be
