Shielding is the refusal to post photos of your babies/kids on the Internet ie Facebook. The opposite of sharenting / oversharing . Shielding is the protection of the baby/kids right to privacy. In an era where parents are digitally documenting and excessively oversharing what should be private baby/kids photos on on social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat. And posting private details such as date of birth, favourite colour etc. Parents shielding are shielding their babys/kids from being on social media

By shielding, not sharenting, parents are shielding their babies/kids from identity fraud, a digital footprint, data mining, predators and the future meltdown of their now teenage offsprings reaction to their entire childhood from babyscan though to birth to school being digitally documented and posted on Facebook for the world to see.
"Ergh all the other mum's oversharing who don't give a fuck about their babies privacy. How is a baby supposed to consent to photos of themselves being constantly and excessively posted online daily. A kid is too young to understand the repercussions of their lives being posted online. I'm shielding mine from the Internet altogether!" - Daisy
