Parents Putting Their Babies on the Internet

Are Web Savvy Mums More Alarming Than Clueless Ones?

Most babies aren't born with the Internet reflex, yet 92 percent of US toddlers have a presence online by the time they're 2. From having their photos posted to their own email addresses and social networking profiles, it's web-savvy parents who decide to send their tots off into cyberspace. This practice is in stark contrast to the moms and pops who don't know how to use a mouse — much less monitor what their offspring are doing online. But all things considered, which situation is more alarming?

it's such a strange reality that before was never a problem before, but it's so true that putting pictures and other info about your kids is not only a breach of their privacy and could embarass them later in life; but in my opinion potentially dangerous. however, I, of course, understand how and why parents are excited to show off their children as well as keep in touch with their relatives and friends who do not live nearby.it's just an issue that people need to be smart and careful about...
