5 Safe Sites for Your Kids to Sharpen Their Social Networking Skills

We revolve around all things social - from Facebook to Twitter and other sites. These sites are not for children under a certain age though – which usually becomes a topic of conversation for your little ones. The “why can’t I join” question comes up a lot. Instead of just saying no, you could consider letting them join a site that is specifically for kids. These sites take care of parental worries such as bullying, the use of bad language and much more.

Safe Sites for Your Kids to Sharpen Their Social Networking Skills

If you want your kids to be social, but safe, these sites mentioned below are some of the best sites online for the younger generation:

Kudos It is a photo sharing social media app that offers children a unique social experience in a safe environment. Children can share their edited pictures with their friends who can like, react, and comment on them. Photos are monitored to ensure they are appropriate.

Kibooku This offers children a safe environment to interact and play online. It also has a parental control area and allows 14-day parental verification of kids’ content. Children can meet new friends, hang out, and play safely.

Scuttle Pad It is a social network for children between 6-11 years of age. Children can add friends, update statuses through word lists (pre-defined) and upload photos. All photos are reviewed manually. Pre-defined word lists prevent usage of profane language on the site.

Franktown Rocks If your child loves music, they will really enjoy this website because it’s geared towards music. Kids can also play games and earn franks when they win. These franks can be used to buy items in the virtual world FTR.

Kidzworld If you want a site that really controls things like unwanted solicitations, bad language, and bullying, Kidzworld is the site for your children. They can play games, quizzes, and chat with other kids in a safe and monitored environment.

Let your child join one of these social media sites to provide them with a safe social networking experience!
