A girl shared how she doesn’t want her parents to post photos of her onto Facebook but they keep doing it.
Here is the story:
“I don’t want my parents to post pictures of me on Facebook, but they keep doing so and ignoring my feelings.
I am under 18, which means that I’ve grown up with social media. My parents have had Facebook ever since I was 2 or 3 in 2008 or so. My parents would post pictures of me when I was a toddler, which I’m fine with. I get it. If I was a parent with a cute little kid I probably would have done the same thing.
When I was 6 or 7, my mom would be chasing me with her phone trying to take pictures and I’d yell, “don’t post them on Facebook!” However, she still did and now when she shows me the years old posts, I feel humiliated.
I’m not allowed to have any kind of social media until I’m 25, according to my mom. In my opinion, it’s hypocritical.
This is the main incident. My dad won his fantasy football league and won a stupid trophy with some beer cans and metal plaques. My dad made me sit on the sofa right in front of a giant sunny window with the trophy in front of me.
He took a picture (after I closed my mouth to stop complaining). He then photoshopped the picture to make my skin bright orange, so I was pissed.
I begged him not to post it on Facebook, but he still did. I looked at his phone and he captioned the post “this is a champion household!” Cringe, but whatever. Even my dad’s colleagues saw the post and commented. I didn’t want that photoshopped and forced picture of me on the internet.
This has been ongoing for years. It’s probably petty, but I’m sick of it.”
Editor’s note: It just means that they are proud of you and want to show you off to their friends, you’ll understand when you’re older.
