Parents all around the country upload images of their bright progeny dolled up and ready for their first day of school since the emergence of social media. We often see joyful kids holding a sign with their grade on the family front porch, almost always with the requisite backpack.

We all “Like” the photographs and comment on how swiftly time flies and how rapidly children grow up in response. It’s all so lovely and adorable.

Of course, the after photographs don’t take a-way from the thrill of a new school year, and let’s hope that most of these youngsters are disheveled because they had so much joy and activities during the day. The photos serve as a timely reminder that social media representations don’t always convey the whole story, and that children’s lives aren’t always as straightforward as we assume.
