When it comes to my children I am overly protective; no matter what they’re doing or where they are, I always want to make sure that they are safe…especially online.
I take many precautions when it comes to protecting my privacy and that of my children online; here on Misadventures in Baby Raising I am always extremely careful about not exposing where we live, the schools my children go to and even their names—and I make sure that I take the same precautions everywhere that I have an online presence. My children however, are a completely different story, they could care less about privacy and what they share online and that is a major issue for me and I’m sure many other parents as well.
Since nearly everyone, adult and child, has a smart phone, it’s really easy to access Facebook, Twitter and everywhere else tweens and teens hang out online. For kids, that easy access is just part of their everyday lives , for parents that easy access raises many red flags—or it should. I don’t know about you, but the whole idea of Facebook and privacy settings and photo sharing with just about everyone my kids know, makes my head spin. Since I don’t see my children giving up their beloved social media hangouts anytime soon, it’s probably a good idea for me to ensure that they know about web privacy and maybe even introduce them to a website where they can share photos safely with the people they choose…you know, like Out My Window!
outmywindowTM is an online photo sharing site that allows users to upload and share photos with only the people they want to share them with—making privacy a number one priority! You can download the Out My Window App on iTunes for your IOS device or use the Out My Window website so you can share photos safely with those you love at home or on the go! This is one that all of you moms and dads need to check out and share with your kiddos—it’s just an a little added peace of mind for parents and that’s always a good thing!
