If you have been a long-time reader here at “Deal”ectable Mommies, then you know full well that I’m a social networking junkie. At any given moment, I can typically be found on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and/or other social networking sites, spreading the news about great deals or just connecting with my online and offline friends.
What I haven’t told you, is that I’m terrified of the thought of my kids engaging in social networking activities, primarily because of safety and privacy issues – in fact, I don’t see myself allowing my girls to have Facebook accounts until their old enough to get married….perhaps about the age of 29 or so! That sounds about right, doesn’t it?
Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that social networking is here to stay, and sooner than later she will be asking to engage with others via these outlets. When that time arrives, I believe it’s my job as a parent to ensure that she’s doing it safely, and that each move is carefully monitored. In fact, online site, Kidzworld, does just that!
What Is Kidzworld?
Established in 2001, Kidzworld is the first kids social network for kids between the ages 9 – 14. Kidzworld encourages kids to express themselves through the creation of original content in a safe online world. Children can interact with each other in our moderated chat rooms, message boards and forums. In the KW Zone (our kids social network), their user profile is a safe and secure place to share photos, create groups, write a blog, or post poems and stories. This area is continually supervised; the number one priority for a kids social network. In fact, all the social networking children do at Kidzworld is monitored for safety and bullying. Consequently, there is no ability to share or disclose personally identifiable or private information. Kidzworld is truly a safe social network for kids and teens.
Kidzworld is compromised of over 1 million kids that your child can connect with! Think of it as the new way to have multiple online pen-pals! Kidzworld currently features the following content:
