Children on the blog...

Today I was reminded of a very important and sensitive issue. One of my co-workers created a website for her class that showed pictures of some of the students. Showing children's pictures on the internet, namely through a personal blog (such as this one) or a website is a definite NO-NO! There are many, many legal issues associated with this. This is the reason that you do not see pictures of my students on this blog. The only way that you can show a picture of a child that is not yours is if the parents give you permission. I would have them sign a written permission slip, just to cover yourself even more. Please be mindful of this when working on your blogs or websites.
