Rochdale Online: Parents too scared of social media judgement to admit their child had an accident, new research reveals. “Parents left feeling inadequate after reading posts on Facebook and Instagram reveal they would not be willing to admit to their child suffering a serious accident for fear of being judged on social media, new research reveals. The research, from the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), reveals that nearly three quarters (71%) of parents now feel under too much pressure to be ‘perfect parents’, with one in three (35%) unwilling to admit to an accident or near miss for fear of being judged.”
