IMHO, what we need is to establish standards of respect for this kind of personal data, where it's not socially acceptable to share potentially sensitive information about someone without their knowledge and consent.
Once upon a time, parents did teach their children this kind of respect. Over time, fewer parents did so. Mine (and my GF's) parents were probably amoung the last. Sadly, my GF and I are not able to give our daughter anywhere near the amount of privacy as our parents did. Not because we don't want to give her that level of privacy, but because the social climate demands that parents watch their children a lot more closely than prior generations of parents. We watch her get on the school bus in the morning (it stops close to our house and there is a public webcam at the stop, as well as a public webcam in the school bus) and watch her get off and walk home each day. When she visits a neighboring friend, we (and the friend's parents) are watching her go and return from the friend's house. Any further than that, one of us takes her to her destination, then gets her, later. And one of us goes with here when she goes bicycling. Within our house, all tools are in either workshop or the kitchen. When she's working on a project, one of us is watching as well as helping with the potentialy dangerous tools.
This is not what we think we should be doing. It was what society demands of us.
In contrast, I was allowed to play outside, roaming all over the neighborhood unsupervised. The only restrictions were that I either be able to hear my parents's bell and return home within 15min, or be where my parents had a phone number to call - and call them to let them know I was there. If I wanted to go beyond the neighborhood, I only had to ask and say how to contact me and about how long I expected to be away. The answer was usually "yes" and I could ride my bike to almost anywhere in town.
And I know I had almost no supervision as I roamed the neighborhood. There were many wooded areas when my friends and I could gather out of sight and out of hearing - something that would scare nearly all today's parents shitless.
As for tools, once I demonstrated I could handle a tool safely, I was allowed to use it - even tools my parents were not skilled enough to safely use. Forexample, when I was a Cub Scout, I built all my Pinewood Derby cars myself - no help from anyone and almost no supervision.
