In this informative column for the OC Family section of the Orange County Register I tackle a sensitive topic: what parents do and do no post about their children online. I interviewed mothers at the ends of the spectrum to explain why they either post all the time or not at all.

And beyond anecdotes, I shared information on the main things to be wary of when posting information about one’s child online.

I was asked to write about how motherhood has changed over the past 100 years. I first tackled the topic by thinking of the main themes: technology, family structures, jobs, communities and the state of the country.

I read stories autobiographical stories on how mothering has changed and I reviewed statistical information collected by the Census and federal agencies. My main subjects were a mother, her mother and her grandmother who I found by contacting local moms organizations.
