You're watching Newsround this Wednesday.
Coming up this hour:
The bird ballet coming to an end in Cumbria.
And, curious and curiouser - the Alice in Wonderland
items up for sale.
First, seeing pictures of your friends, beautiful places
or cute animals on social media can be fun, but what if a picture
of you pops up that you don't like and didn't share yourself?
Some of the people who post the most pictures of you are parents,
and you don't always think that's a good thing, as I've
been finding out.
When my mum takes pictures of me, she'll do it when I'm not looking,
and then she won't ask and she'll just put it on.
My first ever bath, I sort of just collapsed
into it, and my mum posted that on Facebook.
Sometimes, I wish they weren't on social media, because
they might comment embarrassing things on photos that I put on.
They'll take one of me and my siblings and put it on, and it might
be, like, a really bad picture of me, or, like, a baby photo.
More than one in three 10-12 -year-olds
told Newsround they feel embarrassed, anxious or worried when
their parents put pictures of them on social media sites.
So, do mums and dads need to think more about
what they are sharing?
My mum took a picture of me when I was sleeping,
so I obviously didn't know until morning.
She said, look how many comments you've got on this photo,
and I was just really angry at her.
They just, like, post whatever they can find.
They just don't really think about anything.
They might post it just to have a laugh with
their mates, and think it's funny for her,
but it may not be funny for
You think about it, but they don't think about it.
They can get bullied for it, and you don't want
that happening to your own child.
It's not just parents.
More than one in four said they've been unhappy
with a picture someone else has shared of them, and that's mainly
because they didn't like the way they looked, or that person didn't
ask for their permission, and some say they've
even had nasty comments.
My friend posted a story of me, and I didn't like it.
I asked him to take it down, and then he took it
May be the reason that you don't have a social media account is
because you don't want anyone to see your photo,
and then people are sharing photos of you, and I just
think it's not nice without their permission.
When I see nasty comments, I feel really scared to
use social media, because I don't want to be targeted like them.
When my friend posted an embarrassing
picture of me, it made me feel quite frustrated and angry.
More than one in three of the kids we asked said
seeing a picture of them they didn't like made
them feel sad, anxious or
What can you do about feeling that way?
Approach the person who's put the picture online
to ask them to take it down, and tell them that they are worried
about it, and speak to a parent or another trusted adult.
Sometimes, a parent can reassure the child that
although the picture might be embarrassing at the moment, in a
couple of days, the picture will be forgotten about.
But the good news is that mostly mums and dads do get
Nearly half of the 10-12 -year-olds said they were OK with
what their parents posted, and what they saw made them
feel happy and proud.
So, what's your message for parents?
It can affect the child's life further on, and the child's life at
Your child's friends will see what ever you comment on my
Maybe, like, when you post photos, like, they could ask first,
because, like, sometimes, my mum just posts them.
Don't let parents have social media.
So, do you get embarrassed by your mum or dad sharing photos of you?
We want you to know your thoughts, so head online and leave us
a comment, and we'll try to read out as many as we can later.
And some of you have already been in touch.
Nine-year-old Isla says her mum posts super embarrassing pictures
of her, like when she has spilt ice cream on her nose!
Most of the time, Isla doesn't like what her mum posts about her.
And 10-year-old Ruby says just the other day her mum posted
a picture of her on social media and she felt really uncomfortable.
But Ruby spoke to her mum, and she immediately removed them.
Football now, and current Premier league champions Leicester City

Finally, Alice in Wonderland fans won't want to be late for this

items from it have been on display in exhibitions in the UK and Europe.
That's all from me.
