Let's face it, whether we like it or not our kids are growing up surrounded with all the latest technology (as opposed to playing golf when I was a kid).
And sometimes this can be super scary with all the accessibility they have. I think the worst part is not knowing who they are talking to, or who can get a hold of them online. There are a lot of bad people out there and some of those are even children that come in the form of "bullies". I think that is one of my biggest fears as a parent is having my kids tortured in school by other kids. Between that and scary predators its really a challenge to keep safety nets without acting like a "helicopter" parent. There are different parental controls on your computer to keep kids from visiting certain sites but they only work to a certain extent in blocking content and have nothing to do with who they are talking to, and then when another person goes on the computer they need to change the settings if they wish to go to certain sites. So I am very pleased with this amazing program for kids called KIDSEMAIL.ORG. It is a safe way for your kids to send email. They have created an amazing system where you decide what boundaries to set for your child. You can choose from a ton of different safety settings when setting up their very own email account like:
RECEIVE/SEND MAIL FROM CONTACT LIST ONLY?
MAIL A COPY OF INCOMING
MESSAGES TO YOU?
REMOVE IMAGES FROM INCOMING
REMOVE LINKS FROM EMAILS?
FILTER OUT BAD WORDS?
Additional tasks include:
- Ground Child
- Time Restrictions
- Blocked Senders
- Child's Account
- Activity Logs
They have options for the complexity of the child's account page to range from toddler up to teens and they can even choose a background for their account page.
Here is what the format looks like when they are sending an email from their kidsemail.org account. Notice how simplified the setup is. I truly love the fact that I have the option to choose who my child is sending and receiving email from that way there is no wondering who they are talking to. You need to let your child learn and discover with technology so why not do it the safest way possible? And in my opinion the only way to do that is to use kidsemail.org!
