5 Safety Tips for Sharing Photos of Kids

Who wouldn’t want to share that adorable baby picture, the latest accomplishment your kid had, or the incredible new dance costume that won the competition? Your smartphone and tablet applications let you chose where you want to upload your favorite shots — and then what you captured can be posted to all of your social media channels in an instant.

My nephew recently turned 10, and there is no doubt he’s what the experts call a “digital native” — screen time is a big part of his life. I want him to be safe, but also encourage his curiosity and learning as he explores these gadgets that will be so much a part of his life as he grows up.

To help you in your own quest for kid-safe goodies, here are some of the products I found that are fun, and also will allow him to enjoy his technology safely:

Not long ago, we used our mobile phones soley to make and receive calls. But now our phones are the nerve center of our busy lives, enabling us to text, tweet, take photos, watch movies, listen to music and audiobooks, get directions, surf the Web and use millions of apps for finding everything from cheap airfare to learning deep-breathing exercises.

That’s why Gary Braley, a Twin Cities writer and speaker who prides himself on using plain English to explain mobile technology, never makes a recommendation regarding which phone someone should buy without first understanding the person’s needs.
