A TikTok mom is urging fellow parents to take pictures of their children off their social media platforms.

The concerned mother believes that the mom of a TikTok famous toddler is allowing her daughter to be targeted by potential predators on the social media platform.

Kelso first began raising awareness over the dangers of sharing footage of young children online in a video that has garnered over 1.8 million views.

"Me deleting any TikTok my daughter is in, removing tons of followers from my Instagram and setting it to private after hearing about Wren," she wrote in the clip, which she captioned with the hashtag 'save the children'.

In a follow-up video, the mom explained in further detail the worrying trend she had noticed.

She began by introducing viewers to TikToker Eleanor, who used her social media platform to share videos of her adorable three-year-old daughter Wren.

"What caught my attention was there was a video of her little girl that had a tampon in it. She was posed in kind of an inappropriate way.... and she was playing with the tampon," she continued.

Kelso explained that the video has been saved hundreds of thousands of times. "You go in the comments and there are all of these creepers commenting all of this crazy weird s***."

She continued: "Not to mention in the search bar there is 'Wren eating a corndog', 'Wren scandalous outfits' - she's three!"

The mom went on to say that it is seriously irresponsible of Wren's mom to keep the footage of her child online when she knows it is being looked at inappropriately.

"There are a lot of things you cannot control when it comes to protecting children. But you can control the content that you post of your own children on social media," she argued.

"People sell these videos, they screenshot pictures of your kids, and they sell these images to online predators," the TikToker said, adding that in extreme cases, these children would be tracked down, kidnapped, and sold into sex trafficking.

Many people took to the comments section of Kelso's video to agree that children's images should be taken down from social media.

"I appreciate you putting this out there I wasn’t aware and am removing content now," one wrote, while another agreed: "That’s absolutely right, they are everywhere so we need to protect our children."
