There is no such thing as a secret even though some secret holders believe great power is held in that sealing. When you tell someone a secret — and ask them to keep the faith while not acting on the information — you create a false covenant by believing people will refuse to act in their own best interest.

We need to have a blunt conversation. I realize this may not be a popular article if you have children and you celebrate them online by posting their photos for public viewing.
There has been a lot of talk about protecting children when they are interactively online but I suggest parents take an even larger step backward and realize even one-way interaction where your children are being viewed by people you do not know is just as dangerous to the welfare of your child as an unmonitored online chat session.
