For National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Child Rescue Coalition is launching a campaign to take over more than 100 hashtags that overexpose kids on Instagram with pictures of kids holding “Privacy Please” signs.

Parents love to share pictures of their kids online, but using hashtags like #pottytraining, #nakedkids, or #kidsbathing can overexpose children by showcasing private moments that shouldn’t be shared with a large audience.

The Child Rescue Coalition says using these hashtags could make kids vulnerable to pedophiles and sex offenders.
