In the lively world of social media, Filipino parent influencers have taken center stage, showcasing their parenting journey for all to see, often referred to as “sharenting”.
This trend involves parents sharing aspects of their family life on platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram and showing snippets of their daily lives online.
A few notable figures in this realm include Team Kramer’s Doug and Chesca, Cong TV and Viy Cortez, Jubi and Xian, and Kryz Uy with Slater Young.
1. Doug Kramer and Chesca Garcia
Team Kramer, composed of Doug, Chesca, and their three children, is a pioneer in Filipino family vlogging. Their content extends beyond mere entertainment, serving as a platform that reflects essential values such as love, respect, and togetherness.
Through their heartwarming videos, Team Kramer has established itself not only as a commercial figure but also as a beacon for promoting positive familial bonds in the digital space.
2. Cong TV and Viy Cortez
Cong and Viy, members of Team Payaman, are some of the most established content creators in the Philippines. This power couple is known for their humorous and relatable content.
They started as a couple of vloggers and are now parents to their child, Kidlat. They started sharing their family journey when they lost their first baby after Viy suffered from a miscarriage in December 2020.
3. Jubi and Xian
TikTok couple Jervymae Baluyot, aka Jubi or Mamiju, and her partner Xian Dela Peña, also known as Dadiju are the parents of the cute TikTok baby called “Baby Ju”.
From sharing Baby Ju’s cuteness overload to documenting precious family moments to sharing parenting insights, they’ve provided a transparent look into their lives and a glimpse into the joys and challenges of parenthood.
4. Kryz Uy and Slater Young
Internet sensation couple Kryz and Slater are the parents of Scott and Sevi. They bring a touch of glamor to the parenting scene, blending style with the realities of raising a child.
Kryz and Slater also share powerful and purposeful parenting conversations through their podcast channel.
These influencers not only entertain but also create a sense of community, connecting with other parents and sharing tips and experiences.
While sharenting can provide a sense of community and support for parents, it raises important questions about the privacy and consent of the children involved. Social media influencer parents often walk a fine line between sharing meaningful moments and potentially exploiting their children for likes and followers.
As influencer parents continue to shape the digital parenting landscape, the challenges and rewards of sharenting persist, reminding us of the delicate line between sharing and protecting in the age of social media.
