Thought I had today: Children memorizing their phone numbers and addresses.

Today I was in 7 Eleven, and I heard someone talking about children memorizing their addresses. A thought came to my mind to be careful about this. If someone you or your children do not know well asks them if they have memorized their phone number or address, they may be doing it for ulterior motives.
A lot of people do ask kids if they have them memorized, just to see where they are or if they think they should have them memorized by a certain age, but it would be an EASY way for a predator to get your phone number or address.
As parents, we may want to "show off" how smart our children are by having them recite this, but it could be dangerous.
I just thought I would share this with you all in the hopes that it may help someone.
Have a great day!
