The start of the 2018-19 school year is right around the corner and with parents purchasing school supplies, several are asking if it's safe to embroider your child's name on their backpack. 

Some argue names on backpacks could be a safety issue. Embroidered backpacks could make kids an easy target for predators attempting to gain familiarity with the child.
