The Concord Bookshop presents Leah Plunkett’s Sharenthood: Why We Should Think Before We Talk About Our Kids Online, part of the Strong Ideas series from the MIT Press. Sharenthood explores how parents, teachers and other trusted adults excessively compile and digitally share children’s personal data, creating an over-sharenting crisis that undermines our children. Plunkett, a law professor who’s passionate about protecting kids’ privacy, discusses how we can make choices that give children the freedom to play, learn from mistakes, and grow.
