    I agree. But to be fair to @delerium I doubt she's posting negative comments on Bec's Instagram saying "you're too thin" or "you're misrepresenting how women are perceived in society". Yes this conversation is public but honestly with 4 kids I doubt Bec Judd is reading them. And she's heard it before. Doesn't make it ok which is why I'd refrain personally from saying "I can't stand the woman" etc. It's ok to not like what she's doing but for me comments like that cross a line.

    My daughter likes to post videos on Musical.ly. We thought it was ok until we realised her account wasn't private. So she was posting videos for anyone to watch but luckily she had only posted 2

    My DH described it like this. You wouldn't dance in front of a couple of men at the park so why is it ok to do it online? She was horrified thinking about it that way.

    I agree that for someone so young they should keep it private (I don't even know what Musical.ly is!) unless of course it is something they are making a career of. And I do think that is part of what we teach as well when it comes to social media.

    I suppose my point is also that even if she does not frequent BubHub etc talking about her in such a derogatory way is like 'mean girls' i.e. lets just talk about this person on a different forum (or behind their back). I suppose what I was trying to say is that we are the ones teaching our children about how to interact with people. If we expect manners from them IRL we should teach them the same online. And we should also be doing the same. And the things being said here is not nice. And not ok.

    I agree.

    all the haters should go check out the latest pic on her insta: she looks decidedly "normal". still glowing and gorgeous but pretty sure make up free. she looks like any other exhausted and glowing new mum.

    I am finding her 'what's his name?' 'Which baby is it again' posts amusing too. I only just started following her from this. And noted a lot of IG people I follow also follow her. Small world.

    On a slightly different topic to the above I want to shout out to @HollyGolightly81 for pulling me up on here one day and thinking about social media and the impact our words have on people.

    I would rather my kids follow neither. How on earth a woman focusing on her own physical appearance and media coverage 24/7 is a good example for kids is beyond me. Does she offer anything to aspire to other than "she's not as bad as Kim."?

    If I'm honest, when my daughter reaches a stage where outside and celebrity influences are going to so dramatic to her self esteem, I would rather steer her towards someone like Bec who from what I can see is a decent wife and mother, who found a career (or several by the sounds of it) doing something that makes her feel happy, regardless of what it is. As opposed to sending her to somewhere on the internet like Bubhub or other similar forums. Most of the time this is a great place, but I have seen people savagely pounce on someone who has put themselves out in a vulnerable place. And I truly believe that, that will do a whole lot more damage than occasionally looking at pictures of someone who likes feeling pretty.

    Can't open it as not a subscriber.

    If it's what I think it's about I've read it before.
