I was just wondering if anyone else wonders from time to time that we all put WAY too much information about our kids out here for anyone to see? Not the stories. But their names, ages, pictures, where they live, etc......

 Not looking for any drama at all! I make it a point to avoid all that nonsense. Just wondering what others think.....

Feb. 1, 2008 at 7:37 PM I thinks it's ok if you are not too specific about where you live. I'll tell you what worries me; when I see babies or young children naked on the beach and I wonder "do those parents realise that with digital cameras and the internet that child's naked body can be on every pedophiles computer screen in minutes?"

It is why I don't mention my kids names often, definitely not their last names.  The pictures that I post are only here and only for friends. 

I'm not big on posting pics and info about my children.  I made a big deal with my ex husband's wife about that.  She had pics of a couple of my children at my house and they aren't his kids, on her website! I had her take them off.  Only one of my children is his.

So yeah, I think we all need to be wary of what we put up and how we go about it.  : )

Feb. 1, 2008 at 10:10 PM I always feel paranoid about everything! My husband is an artist and my nephew asked for some custome painted shoes for his birthday. The whole time he was working on them I kept bugging him because he was putting my nephews name on them. What if some crazy person uses his name to lure him away? Aargh! I hate the things we moms have to think about!

Feb. 2, 2008 at 9:55 AM I feel that way when I see names of kids on the back of people's vehicles. Or they wear their names on their clothes. I hate it, but I feel myself becoming more and more paranoid!!! LOL.

I thought long and hard about this before posting my kids names and pics.  Here is my take on it.  If you really follow around my profile, you can find me.  I have a couple of retail businesses and a couple of online businesses. So my name and address is out there.  If you come into one of my shops, you will see my pictures of my children.  If you are watching me or following me, you will see my childrens' faces. 

Flip the coin:

I also have a gun (licensed) and a temper and a lot of friends.  So if you mess with me, I will respond accordingly.  I was not brought up to be anonymous.  I want my children to be proud of who they are and I don't want them to be afraid of the world.  If they run for president, or hope to marry a real prince, they will be scrutinized.  How much easier if it's all right there on the table.
