Sharenting: Raising children in the age of social media

Leah attended Harvard College & Harvard Law School and became a lawyer so she could work with kids, parents, and communities on law and the ordinary—those things in our daily lives at the heart of who we are and who we aspire to be. Our families and personal relationships. Our privacy and individual freedoms. Our education. Our economic lives. Our commitment to social justice and equality. Our use of digital technologies and how that is changing everything we do.

She currently works as the associate dean & associate professor at University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law. I also direct UNH Law’s Academic Success program. Down in the metropolis of Cambridge, Massachusetts, I’m a faculty associate with the Youth & Media team at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.  Leah has recently written a book, titled Sharenthood.

Sharenthood is for all the parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, and other grown-ups who want to give our children great nurture in a world that’s digital in nature. Leah will explore how the laws in the United States have led to an over-sharenting crisis that undermines our children—and how we can make choices that restore their privacy & freedom to play & grow.
