Think Before You Post Information About Your Child's School

Edit Your Family's Back-to-School Online Info For Safety!

As the kiddos return to school, proud parents will snap shots of their children heading into class. 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  • Do not publish personal contact information including phone numbers and addresses.
  • Do not publish the means of transportation your child uses — pictures of a car with license plate, bus line, or the route they walk.
