Most of you probably don't know, that Greg and I have six grandkids. And that is because I don't write about three of them very often. Not because we aren't in their life, not because we don't love them as much as the others.
I don't write about them because of a scary person in their life. Someone we try to keep from them.
So, no pics online, no names, nothing. The school, the teacher, family, we all know the rules.
But last week, a local newspaper placed a picture of one of them on the front page of the paper (and of course online), complete with first and last name, age, grade and school.
Anyone can now find them. Including the scary person. All because the newspaper didn't think to get permission before printing a photo.
So I'm writing this to remind everyone to get permission before you post pictures, student work, videos etc. anywhere online. It might seem like an insignificant thing to you. But to the family asking you not to post those pictures, etc, it's important, and it doesn't matter what their reason is.
