It’s funny how little comments can stick with you. Over the holiday weekend, Grammy asked if we ever worried about putting our kids’ pictures and names on the internet, because of “predators”.
I’ve never given that much thought. Perhaps I’m naive but I just can’t imagine anyone taking the time to track down some random child. I know my kids are gorgeous and brilliant, but what could follow from someone reading this blog?
But then Anthropapa pointed out that all of our favorite parents’ blogs use pseudonyms for themselves and their kids. So I’m wondering, what level of privacy is necessary? What are the assumptions behind the privacy of information on the internet? What are the actual risks?
Any thoughts, O my loyal 2-3 readers?
