Q: My 8-year-old son went to a classmate’s birthday party, and his pal’s mom posted photos of the fete on Facebook. What do I do?
A: Navigating online spaces such as Facebook is part of modern life. If you don’t want your child’s picture posted online, ask this mom to remove the photos that include him. Don’t chastise her; simply say you’re uncomfortable having your son on Facebook. In the future, when you RSVP for a party, ask the parent not to include your son in party photos she posts online.
