As parents, it is hard to remember to ask permission before we post information about our little ones, but it is really important to keep in mind. Children understand at a very early age that online is forever and they don't want embarrassing stories publicly posted for everyone to see.

That is fair: Would you want your most embarrassing moments online for everyone to eventually read about?
