    About a year ago I saw one in SoCali with the Hubby Xed out at a local College I attend part-time. The note above said "Position available, inquire within" I saw the Mom (uber-cute) and a potential new family. I was sorely tempted to give her my business card. Oh, the paths we never follow from being faint of heart. LOL

    This is only now a concern? I've thought about anything stuck to my car or my possessions more as a liability than a benefit ever since I can remember. Putting a child's name on the outside of a backpack is the same advertisement for trouble, stickers on a car is nothing different.

    I think the decals with the names of the family members could be a threat to the family. I wouldn't want random people knowing the names of my kids. Paranoid....maybe but it's better to be safe than sorry. Besides, the stickers are becoming a bit overdone anyway!

    It took a while, but I found a place that sold me one of these with a depiction of a beer drinkin' dad.

    So the bad guy sees your minivan at the mall with stickers showing that you have four kids, and a bumper sticker that says your kid is an honor student at Whistlesnitch Middle School. So he starts at the school and drives around every block in the district, hoping to spot your minivan (and hoping that it isn't safely in your garage, so he can...what? Burgle you because people with four kids are more likely to have stuff to steal than people with three kids or six kids?

    My only concern with allowing such stickers to be put on our cars is that it is currently a violation to do so (police can pull you over and issue a ticket for obstructing the rear window).

    For those who worry about a possible implication of easy pickings because their caricature of familial bliss has a picture of a cat rather than dog, or any other kind of subtle invitation to criminals, how's bout adding a shotgun toting father and/or mother to the mix? That should convey a useful countervailing message. Perhaps to the point of **increasing** one's security.

    I like the stickers I saw that said "This vehicle/property protected by Smith & Wesson. Nothing inside worth dying for." That's all the identification I need to show.
