sharenting

blending; noun
The trend of excessive sharing and coverage by parents of ones child through social media.
 
Sharenting typically is a noun that describes the overall trend of sharing the lives of ones kids, rather than a specific incident or person; the term “oversharenting” is occasionally used as a verb to describe specific incidences or people. Sharenting carries with it a negative connotation, and was most likely coined as a response to the widespread use of social media, particularly as generations growing up with technology reach childbearing ages. Sharenting also carries with it questions about privacy and rights, given the inability of a child to decide on whether or not his or her image is shared online.
Etymology : Formed by blend of share and parenting.
