NEW YORK (AP) -- It's hard to believe that in an age when people post about their kids from the time they're conceived until they grow up there are parents who don't want their kids' images online at all.

Some parents are leery about having all those images of their progeny floating around online and aren't shy about letting people know they'd prefer their kids have no online identity at all.

Some say it's for safety reasons, others say they don't want companies or schools to judge their children based on what's posted online.

Still others say their kids should decide how much of an online presence they should have, once they're old enough.

Some parents go so far as to have online aliases for their children for friends and family to use, instead of the child's real name.
