Mother Uses Facebook to Teach Daughter Important Lesson

1581-cfb4ad347a86177fcaac9c0c48025e71

southernmamaA picture on Facebook, from a community page for parents, has gone viral — and that’s exactly the teaching moment intended for the subject in the photo.

The picture was re-posted on March 18, on the page “Southern mama.”  The mother, Kira Hudson, from Colorado, originally asked friends on her Facebook page to share the picture of her daughter. 

The picture the young girl is holding says “Mom is trying to show me how many people can see a picture once it’s on the internet.”

It was shared on the page earlier today and since then has been shared 54,637 times (at 9:45 p.m.), which obviously proves the point. A viral picture you may regret later can spread beyond your control pretty quickly.

Here are some online safety rules for parents and kids, courtesy of CNN:

  • Educate yourself
  • Take advantage of existing tools
  • Set and enforce limits
  • Keep the real and virtual worlds separate

      If you Google Kira Hudson And read how badly this lesson went wrong you may change your mind, sadly the mother didn’t understand Facebook security herself.

      But she actually did the thing to her daughter that she wwanted to protect her from, posted her picture with identifying details publicly, if you look up how other sites reported the full story you will see how badly planned this was.

    Great lesson at the child’s expense. Next lesson, she makes her daughter walk into a busy road to show her that they are dangerous. I think this mother is a child abuser.

    What this article doesn’t tell you is that at the time the mother posted this pic she had her Facebook page completely public now thousands upon thousands of people know an incredible amount information about this little girl. Mom’s done more harm than good I’m afraid.

      Let’s hope that nobody Googles a Kira Hudson of Colorado, or searches Facebook. We know there is a angry girl there possibly ready to run away. I hope she stays safe.

      I think it’s insane. She wanted to teach her daughter a lesson about how it is bad to post a picture online that is inappropriate, by spreading a picture of her to many people that do not like publicly shaming kids?

      Way to go mom! Did she teach her kid to not cross the road without looking by blindfolding her and having her cross the road?

      Certain online groups that raided her mom’s open FB, ordered pizza’s to her house in her name, they will get a ton of free internet products now, like free Koran’s, free mormon stuff, free subscriptions to inappropriate magazines, in the mail and online, etc etc. They contacted the child’s divorced father, sent him pictures of his child holding up inappropriate messaging in the sign, and saying, you left and this is what happens to me under my mothers care, free BJ’s at my house.. etc etc. Sent them to the school principle too I understand.

      This mother did nothing right. Public shaming of kids has to stop. There was no good intentions here either. Her mom was laughing and loving the attention she got at first… but when it turned bad, then she claimed she was a victim… no.. she made her child a victim the moment she posted this and said go ahead world… share it.

      I fear this child will have a serious breakdown and risk for suicide. They already made a death memorial website of this child, saying she killed herself. This story has not ended yet. it will get worse for the family, they do not realize the Pandora’s box they opened when you have pranksters online with no morals that have issues with people publicly shaming their children online.

    Great lesson! Sometimes our children just don’t understand how bad the consequences of their actions could really be. The child may be angry now, but I believe it will be a great lesson learned.

    • dorian

      Look up how other sites report this, she didn’t think it throughit sounds clever but She actually put her child in exactly the same risk as if she had just let her use Facebook.

    Wooooow, my niece uses facebook and when she wants to take a picture she has her mother upload it, if it is that big of and issue, then get rid of your own facebook. REMEMBER YOU LEAD BY EXAMPLE!!!

  • EDWARD

    I AGREE “GREAT MOM TEACHER ” BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME VERY SICK MINDED POOR ESCUSES FOR MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE THAT WOULD FIND HER SOMEHOW AND POSSIBLY RAPE AND OR KILL HER. BUT THERE ARE SOME NICE RESPECTABLE PEOPLE TOO LIKE ME IN THIS WORLD TOO THAT WOULD NEVER HURT YOUR DAUGHTER IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. BUT EVEN STILL TEACH HER I THINK THATS GREAT MOM

    It completely doesn’t matter if the profile is public or not. If someone wants to see the information on a particular account they can..albeit a Facebook employee, the Government, a foreign Government, a business with a paid Administrative Facebook Account, or just some kid hacker.
