Scary…..

Did you know that 92% of Toddlers already have an online presence

  • On average, 23% of parents share images from prenatal sonograms on the web;
  •  7% of babies and toddlers have an e-mail address;
  • 10% of toddlers already have a Facebook account.

Meet Andy…

Now are you glad that…

  • the home videos of you running around naked under the sprinkler are on VHS cassettes tucked away in a dusty attic somewhere never to be seen again?
  • the pics of you throwing a tantrum are hidden away in an old fashioned photo album?

With this in mind it is important that we are cautious about the kinds of information we upload about our children – it will follow them for the rest of their lives (not ours).
