It's no surprise that parents can be cringeworthy at times. Parents are embarrassing their children more than ever through the use of social media, with research showing that more than one in four teens have experienced this online. Posting unflattering photos, cringey comments, or friending their school friends on Facebook are just some of the ways that parents might embarrass their children online.

Have your parents ever embarrassed you through the use of social media, or in any other ways? Share some of your stories here!

    Hey @Greta, great post, I think most of us have experience of this!! There's a long standing joke with my family and friends that literally within seconds of posting anything on Facebook, my partner's mum will 'Like' it first. Don't know how she's on Facebook so much as she's got a full time job  =)=) must not be very busy haha
    Treat yourself as you would treat a good friend

    @Lucy307 That's so funny I have an aunt who does the same thing with all my posts on Facebook! I don't know how they do it haha. My dad used to post the most embarassing pictures of me and then they'd show up on my timeline :persevere: Luckily now he knows to untag me before posting!

    Thankfully not. I used a different name on my social media so as to confuse a nosy aunt. It worked. =)

    I remember my dad commenting on one of my posts. It was mostly cringeworthy because its nothing he would say to my face cause dont even say much to him let alone anything postive & it was so fake it was cringy and embarrassing & embarassing for him aswell

    My da has definitely had a few times,

    I remember when I changed my facebook cover photo to "where's my cookies!?" and he started talking about cookies to my brother in law and started saying stuff like "damn straight momma" 

    Honestly though it doesn't affect me in that way as its all good fun and I get a heck of a laugh out of it 😂

    I think this is quite common, I have definitely experienced this a few times before.
