School Year's Resolutions: Edit What Goes on Internet!

School Year's Resolutions: Edit What Goes on Internet!

As the kiddos return to school, proud parents will snap shots of their children heading into class. Some mommy bloggers have launched photo contests encouraging fellow moms to upload pictures of their youngsters under their school signs. Tweens post their class assignments and schedules on Facebook to compare with friends. Young athletes tweet the location of their sports practice and games. And looking to hang out with others, kids twitter their whereabouts and contact information. While technology allows families the benefit of being constantly connected, take precaution. Too much seemingly harmless information on public sites allows strangers access to your personal lives. Here are some good tips to follow on public forums:

  • Do not post pictures of your children with uniforms or signs that identify where they go to school.
  • Do not post your child's class or sports schedule.
  • Educate your tweens so they do not tweet their whereabouts.
  • Do not publish personal contact information including phone numbers and addresses.
  • Do not publish the means of transportation your child uses — pictures of car with license plate, bus line, or the route they walk.

my girls school has been irritated a few times with me because i won't allow my childrens' pictures used in newspaper articles, brochures or the school's web site. i told the woman in charge that i don't want some freak to know exactly where to find my cute little child m-f. seems like a no brainer.

wow.. im fairly open online, have a blog and such, but encouraging contests for pictures taken with school signs is pretty stupid. A blaring moment of idiocy, actually. I feel embarressed for them. :\
