Everyone’s children are online these days, and while we may think that the kids understand how to be safe while online, that’s not always the case.
Angeline has an Instagram account, like most high schoolers, and spends a lot of time using it each day. She’s so proud of her hundreds of followers! One day a few months ago, she showed me her account because she was so happy about reaching a follower milestone…
And that’s when I realized that she had her FULL NAME on her Instagram profile!
Even my internet-savvy daughter didn’t think twice about adding her last name to an entirely public app, and we had to have a talk about how dangerous that was!
I am sure that I am not the only one with kids online, so I hope that this infographic helps others as much as it has helped me!
