PARENTS BEWARE: Stop sharing photos of your children with the now-trending hashtag challenge

Our social media feed has been filled with parents posting photos of their children online, and it’s not a bad thing. But what’s alarming about this recent sharing of photos is the use of some of these hashtags:

#drop_your_daughter_pic_challenge
#drop_your_son_pic_challenge
#drop_your_children_pic_challenge
#drop_your_cute_son_challenge
#drop_your_cute_daughter_challenge
#drop_your_cute_children_challenge
#drop_your_daughter_pic_challenge

Yes, we want to show the world how amazing our children are, but let’s be more cautious about doing this. Using these hashtags gives strangers—and pedophiles—an easier way to “save” these photos of our children and, eventually, sell these photos or, heaven forbid, even find a way to track them down. 

Let’s be more mindful and think two or three steps ahead when it comes to our children’s safety. Stop the use of these hashtags now.
