Your stick figure family may be putting your family in danger... of fearmongering reporters

Those stick figure families are a bit of personal vanity, but I seriously doubt people targeted anyone because of them. It does, however, make me wonder what kind of criminal mind works at these victim advocate sites, when they are more enterprising than the criminals they fear.

We’ve all seen the stick figure family stickers on car windows that usually show dad, mom, at least one child, and maybe even a pet. But one group says those stickers could be dangerous to your family.

R.A.C.E. Search and Rescue of Ohio posted the image to the left on their Facebook page detailing how the stickers may be giving away more info about your family than you thought.

Have a picture of little Bobby in his football gear and a “My Son is an Honor Student at Kelley Middle School” bumper sticker?

Congratulations, you just told the world and anyone who may want to harm your child, where they can find him.   

Groups such as the Kids Safe Foundation say the stickers can pose a danger to your family that you may not even realize.
