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
