When my son started crawling about 13 years ago, my immediate thoughts besides how exciting it was, were about his safety.  How can I keep him from crawling up the stairs, or under the dining room table where he could bump his head, or from sticking a finger in an outlet?   I baby proofed our home to the max.  There were baby gates around every turn, ever outlet was protected, cabinet doors had safety locks on them.. you get the picture.  I did the same with my daughter.  Baby gates everywhere, covered outlets, etc..

Then, as he grew up, we had to consider and education him about other safety issues such as riding a bike safely, ‘stranger danger’, and teaching him to never run behind a car pulling out of a driveway.  Those are all real dangers and something else that I have learned about since having my son, is the danger of identity theft. Your child’s clean and unmonitored credit file is a gold mine for identity thieves.  Can you imagine if your child’s credit was ruined before he was even old enough to use and appreciate the meaning of credit?

Now there is a service called LifeLock that will give parents peace of mind by protecting their own and their child’s identity protected in various ways.

What Does LifeLock® Do?

LifeLock gives members the opportunity to use a suite of services (including credit monitoring) that work together to protect their identity from various risks including, but not limited, to credit fraud.    LifeLock actively monitors applications including credit, mortgage, retail credit, and wireless credit applications to name a few, within an extensive network for attempts to use your child’s personal data, and alerts members if suspicious activity is detected.

As I parent, I appreciate the LifeLock Junior service which monitors your child’s personal information with proactive protection features designed specifically for children.
