The 47-year-old actress is keen to keep her kids out of the public limelight as much as she can. She cites the reason, her own awareness of how 'gnarly' social media can be for young people.
Garner who carries impressive fashion sense said: "It's so gnarly to be a kid now. I guard my kids' privacy as much as I possibly can, and I've never posted pictures of them on Instagram. I used to refuse to say their names during interviews - but everyone knows their names! I would just say 'my eldest,' which I still do out of habit a lot.
I'm sure there are times my kids would really love to see themselves reflected on my social media in a fun way and to have the attention they would get from that. But I've fought too hard against it. It would feel hypocritical."

The 'Miracles From Heaven' actress prefers not to be judgmental towards the parents who share pictures of their children online. However, she feels her family is a bit different where privacy's become essential after getting 'completely hounded' for so long.
Jennifer who is dating boyfriend John Miller recently spoke to the InStyle magazine for their 25th anniversary where she said, "There's no implied judgment of people who do put their kids up there; I just don't think most kids have been hounded in the way that mine were when they were little."
The actress revealed they were 'completely hounded 24/7 for 10 solid years'. This sort of tends to change people. Simple stuff like going to your mailbox can no longer be taken for granted. "I even stopped going to the farmers market because I was being photographed there constantly. I realised, 'I'm ruining the farmers market for everyone; this is selfish.' "
