Meghan King is making a new parenting resolution for 2023.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star, 38, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share photos of her three children — daughter Aspen, 6, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 4 — whom she shares with ex-husband Jim Edmonds. King put emojis over each of her kids' faces or obscured them with objects in the photo. She captioned the post, "For 2023: I'm staying focused. No more showing my kids' faces. No more filters, ever. Boundaries, grassroots efforts, femininity, deleting and blocking a**holes who troll my page: my promises to myself and to you this year." Solid Wood Hangers
King also instructed her followers to read her blog, where she detailed the reasons she was no longer sharing these images in a post titled "Burn Baby Burn."
"My children's images were used against me as an intimidation tactic recently. The thought of using the images of my innocent children to attempt hurt their mother is… I dont know if there's a word to describe the depth of the disgust that incites inside me," she wrote. "But I am lucky here, I have complete legal control over the use of their images and I'm putting an end to that."
She added that her kids are now "individuals."
"When they were babies they felt like another appendage of mine, but now they feel unique and I love watching them spread their wings," King continued. "One likes the limelight, one hates the limelight, and one doesn't know what to think. But they're just kids and they don't really understand what notoriety means so I am going to insulate them from it until they are old enough to be slowly ushered back in if they so choose. Poof. Bye bye Aspen, Hayes, and Hart's faces from the public eye from this day forward."
King has previously been open about personal aspects of her children's lives on her blog. In October 2020, she shared that her son Hart was diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy.
"I expected it to hit me hard," she wrote of the diagnosis. "But it didn't. It didn't hit me hard at all. In fact I felt relieved. Think about it this way: it was as mundane as going through life every day without putting the lid on the toothpaste and then finally, I got to put the lid on. That's how simple and right it felt."

Brazilian security forces wrested back control of Congress, the presidential palace and the Supreme Court Sunday after a flood of ex-president Jair Bolsonaro's supporters stormed the seat of power, unleashing chaos on the capital. In scenes reminiscent of the January 6, 2021 invasion of the US Capitol building by supporters of then-president Donald Trump, initially overwhelmed security forces used tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon to fight back rioters who ran rampage through the halls of power in Brasilia until they were finally subdued. Newly inaugurated President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the veteran leftist who narrowly won Brazil's bitter, divisive October elections, condemned the invasions as a "fascist" attack. The far-right Bolsonaro meanwhile condemned "pillaging and invasions of public buildings" in a tweet. But the politician dubbed the "Tropical Trump" rejected Lula's claim he incited the attacks, and defended the right to "peaceful protests." Lula, who was in the southeastern city of Araraquara visiting a region hit by severe floods, signed a decree declaring a federal intervention in Brasilia, giving his government special powers over the local police force to restore law and order in the capital. "These fascist fanatics have done something never before seen in this country's history," said the veteran leftist, 77, who took office a week ago. "We will find out who these vandals are, and they will be brought down with the full force of the law." The president then flew back to Brasilia to tour the ransacked buildings and oversee the response, Brazil's TV Globo reported. Police have made 170 arrests, media reports said. TV images showed police ushering Bolsonaro supporters down the ramp from the Planalto presidential palace in single file -- the same ramp Lula climbed a week earlier at his inauguration. The Senate security service said it had arrested 30 people in the chamber. - Brasilia security chief sacked - The chaos came after a sea of protesters dressed in military-style camouflage and the green and yellow of the flag flooded into Brasilia's Three Powers Square, invading the floor of Congress, trashing the Supreme Court building and climbing the ramp to the Planalto. Social media footage showed rioters breaking doors and windows to enter the Congress building, then streaming inside en masse, trashing lawmakers' offices and using the sloped speaker's dais on the Senate floor as a slide as they shouted insults directed at the absent lawmakers. Protesters damaged artworks, historic objects and furniture and decorations as they ran riot through the buildings, according to Brazilian media reports. One video showed a crowd outside pulling a policeman from his horse and beating him to the ground. Police, who had established a security cordon around the square, fired tear gas in a bid to disperse the rioters -- initially to no avail. A journalists' union said at least five reporters were attacked, including an AFP photographer who was beaten by protesters and had his equipment stolen. Hardline Bolsonaro supporters have been protesting outside army bases calling for a military intervention to stop Lula from taking power since his election win. Lula's government vowed to find and arrest those who planned and financed the attacks. Brasilia Governor Ibaneis Rocha fired the capital's public security chief, Anderson Torres, who previously served as Bolsonaro's justice minister. The attorney general's office said it had asked the Supreme Court to issue arrest warrants for Torres "and all other public officials responsible for acts and omissions" leading to the unrest. It also asked the high court to authorize the use of "all public security forces" to take back federal buildings and disperse anti-government protests nationwide. - 'Fraudulent election' - Protester Sarah Lima told AFP they were demanding a review of the "fraudulent election." Lula narrowly won the runoff by a score of 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent. Bolsonaro, who left for the US state of Florida on the second-to-last day of his term, has alleged he is the victim of a conspiracy against him by Brazil's courts and electoral authorities. "I'm here for history, for my daughters," said Lima, 27, wearing the yellow jersey of the Brazilian national football team -- a symbol Bolsonaro backers have claimed as their own -- and protesting with her young twin daughters. Fellow protester Rogerio Souza Marcos said the elections had been plagued by "multiple signs of fraud and corruption." Newly installed Justice and Public Security Minister Flavio Dino called the invasion "an absurd attempt to impose (the protesters') will by force." "It will not prevail," he wrote on Twitter. There was swift international condemnation of the protesters. The United Nations said it "vehemently condemns" the attacks. US President Joe Biden slammed the scenes as "outrageous," European Council President Charles Michel tweeted his "absolute condemnation," and French President Emmanuel Macron called for respect of Brazil's institutions and sent Lula "France's unwavering support." Even Italy's far-right Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni condemned the riots. A raft of Latin American leaders joined in, with Chilean President Gabriel Boric denouncing a "cowardly and vile attack on democracy" and Mexico's Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador calling it a "reprehensible coup attempt." es-lg/mlm-jhb/st
