I deleted your picture


OK, 4-year old Cadence accidentally deleted a photo of Uncle Dave. I get it. I watched the video. She is really upset. I get that too, but what I don’t get is why her parents haven’t set up a system to backup their photos so they can’t be accidentally deleted. I mean, you have a four year old in the house. The possibilities are endless, and then you are surprised when something is accidentally deleted. At that point, blame yourself, not the poor, little girl.

    Totally Agree! A 4 yr. old……on the computer…..unsupervised? Seriously? The parents should get a little more involved in what their child is doing!

    I agree with Cheryl, but things can happen very quickly when there is a 4 year old around. My granddaughter is very adept at taking pictures with my iPhone, but if she wants a picture deleted because it is poor quality, she hands the phone to me to have it done. Too many opportunities to delete the wrong thing. – Fawn

  4. Totally agree, photos should be backed up, children need to be supervised and need to be taught “rules”. With that said, there are always instances where photos are accidenatlly deleted. This video of Candace breaks my heart.
