Protecting My Son’s Online Privacy

I have always struggled with how much to share on this blog.  I want to be able to share my journey, help other parents and provide a honest look into our lives.  The issue is that it isn’t just my journey.

My partner and I talked at the beginning about if we should use our real names or not.  Our thought is that it is unlikely that anyone socially connected to our son especially when he is older will stumble across this blog.  I do post on Facebook and my friends and family obviously know us and our son but I don’t expect they are going to share the blog with his friends when he is older.

I may change my mind about this in the future….  The internet is an entirely different minefield to navigate.

What are your thoughts on protecting the privacy of children online?  What do you share?  Do you wonder if one day their future employer will see your cute story on their potty training?  Let me know in the comments below.
