Remember This Tip From The Sheriff’s Office Before You Post Back to School Photos
When school starts back up it is definitely a bittersweet time depending on how you are. It also brings the first day of school pictures.
We all know every year parents love to show off their kids school pictures on social media but one sheriff's department is wanting to remind parents what to do and not do.
We have seen a lot in the news lately of kids being posted on social media and people using that information to try to take the kids or other bad things parents are super scared of so if you are a parent this is a great tip.
When you are going to post your kids to show off remember to not get too detailed on their school, teachers, grades and stuff like that. The Carver County Sheriff's Office wants you to know you shouldn't reveal any personal information about your kid at all.
As seen above they show a good example of what to do and not do. They posted saying not to share " school name, grade, age, and identifying features, etc. - these can all be used by predators and scammers.No matter your privacy setting or friends, it’s best to keep personal information to a minimum."
If you want to take those pictures and keep them for yourself that is totally fine but don't post them anywhere because you will never know who will find them. I know this is going to be really hard but with the chance that something bad could happen, it is the best thing to do.
I hope everyone has a great first day at school and rocks this year!
