In the world that we live in these days, it is easy to find small children, even toddlers with social media accounts with thousands if not millions of social media fans.
Most of these children’s parents are celebrities who use social media for marketing their brand with their kids following the same path.
Many citizens have come out to question this strategy as these innocent children get exposed to harsh online critics unknowingly.
Many have been asking, “What if your child grows up and discovers he is not comfortable with parading his life on social media?”
Unlike many other celebrities, celebrated musician Vivianne and her husband Sam West rarely post or show off any of their children on social media.
During a recent Q&A session on her Instagram stories, Vivianne opened up on why she has protected her children from the public eye.
The Simpo Simpo hitmaker revealed that her children are yet to reach their legal age.
Due to this fact, she vowed not to involve them in her world before they are old enough to choose whether being in the public eye is what they want or not.
She added that as soon as her children reach 18, they will be free to do as they wanted.
“When they are 18, they can use, do, as they please. Until then, my little angels will remain protected from the whims of social media,” answered Vivianne.
Citizen TV presenter Lilian Muli was the latest celebrity to throw a jab at parents who have paraded their young children’s lives on social media.
Lilian believes that privacy is power, and thus children should be allowed to grow up before consciously deciding whether they want to be on social media or not.
“When we open Instagram accounts for our babies, have we given them an option to grow up and decide whether they want a public life?” asked Lilian Muli.
