A man named David’s wife wanted to become an influencer on TikTok and YouTube, creating mommy content and content about her day-to-day life. When she first mentioned it, David didn’t have a problem with it, but he told her that he didn’t want their children (4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter) in any of her content.

David didn’t monitor his wife’s channel, but he decided to watch it recently to see what she does in her day-to-day life. He found that their children’s faces were in almost all of her content. He told his wife that she needed to remove all of the content with their children, but she didn’t think it was a big deal.

He Was Very Concerned

David expressed his discomfort with his children’s content, feeling that when children make a profit, they become less like kids and more like a product. He could see that this had happened with his wife, who had posted a video of their 2-year-old daughter having a tantrum and how she dealt with it. David was concerned that her first instinct was to record and hold a camera while their baby was crying.

He Was Considering a Divorce

His wife started crying, saying that she had built this up and that deleting her content would ruin her dream. David responded by saying that he didn’t care, and if she didn’t delete it, he would consider a divorce.

She Hinted He Was Controlling

His wife told her friends and hinted on her social media accounts that David was over-controlling and narcissistic, leading to ridicule from her friends. David wondered if he was actually being over-controlling and narcissistic.

Not All the Content Was Bad

The content that David’s wife posted was not harmful, just videos of her feeding and playing with their children. However, David had a problem with the videos of their children having tantrums and their daughter in her diapers.

A Reminder

David’s wife’s reaction also serves as a reminder that it’s important to listen to and validate our partner’s concerns, even if we don’t agree with them. Making fun of or ridiculing our partner’s feelings can cause further harm to the relationship.

This commenter wrote, “Honestly, I fully expect there to be lawsuits on this topic in the next few years, of kids who have serious mental issues as a result of their parents doing this stuff. And I hope it dies the painful death it deserves.”

Another person commented, “This. I think parents doing this, deliberately being intrusive and posting day to day life of their kids for the world to see, feels abusive to me. They can’t consent. They don’t understand. All for money.”

A Final Comment

This last person posted this opinion and said, “And honestly, the bigger problem is the trust thing. She agreed to something, to your face, then just turned around and did whatever she wanted because she knew you wouldn’t agree. Stuff like kids’ visibility online is an important joint parenting decision, and it’s super concerning that she just completely ignored that. It’s disrespectful to you as a partner.”
