Mom, stop posting photos of me online!

Over the holidays, like most of the time, Spark producer Michelle Parise took a lot of photos of her 7-year-old daughter, Lola. So she was shocked when Lola took issue with how many photos of her Michelle was posting online.
Spark Producer Michelle Parise's daughter Lola approved of this photo being posted to Instagram. She doesn't always.

Next week, we have a story about kids changing sense of self as they watch the "Likes" pile up on their parents' social media accounts. And it all got us wondering if other parents are finding themselves having these conversations with their kids. Or with nieces and nephews or any other significant children. So...we'd like your help! 

We want to hear from you - How have the kids in your life reacted to you posting photos of them online?

You can leave us a comment here, or, if you're on mobile right now, record a voice memo on your phone and email it to us at spark@cbc.ca
