There are several social media websites like Facebook or MySpace designed purely for children under the age of 13, where young people can explore online worlds and make new friends in a safe, child-friendly environment.

The websites are easy to use and have more emphasis on games and interaction than adult social media websites. Most include live monitoring and features to help parents keep track of their children’s online activities.

Imbee.com is very similar to Facebook or MySpace in style and substance. It is aimed at 8 to 14 year-olds and users can create profiles and blogs in much the same way. The website features games, groups, a chat function and has an emphasis on promoting music and cinema. It is free to use and boasts a 'state of the art' kid protection system allowing parents to monitor their children’s activities.

If you are looking for something a little more educational, Whyville is free a virtual world geared towards children aged 8 to 14 years. Children create avatars in their own image which can chat, play and have fun. The site mixes social networking features such as real-time chat with fun and entertaining educational content. Children can upgrade their avatars by earning ‘currency’ and spending it on food and clothing etc.

For younger children Club Penguin has become extremely popular. Over 12 million children have already signed up to Disney’s ClubPenguin.com, where children create an online penguin avatar which they can use to chat, play games and explore online worlds. The website is moderated live and is free to use, but there is a monthly charge of £3.95 to unlock more features.

www.weibo.com I think it's very interesting, but mostly for Chinese. Instagram is also OK for kids to share pictures.

It says that twitter got rid of blocking children, but I honestly doubt it - however since they got rid of blocking kids that's good anyways. Kids are still under apartheid, we must free them - and who actually needs to be blocked is pedophiles, not children!

Well there's tagged.com & mbuzzy.com which also have a mobile version. It's a pretty cool website. Both of them are. If you really like meeting new people then facebook is the best website for that. But I'm a pretty big tagged fan sooo... Hope I helped a little!

I think there might be some out there.....I personally don't think kids should be on things like Twitter, Myspace, and Facebook. Go on KOL.com. There are many websites, but not many are safe. The INTERNET, period isn't that great. Go outside, read a book, call a friend. Thats what I think.

Outside actually there are more dangers than online. Some kids actually may live in areas where there are no local kids at all (I was like that), or schools are too far away (that's why school buses exist). Then, kids may have very different interests - and may vary from interests of local children (if they are present), this causes peer pressure and bullying. Books sometimes may turn out in a childhood obsession - and sometimes also eager to cause peer pressure (i.e. a kid obsessed with Harry Potter lives in an area where 1)nobody knows who he is 2)everybody hates him is very likely to be persuaded and exposed to a peer pressure). Same also goes to comics and animation (incl. anime/manga), games, music etc. So you are not just not right, you are also technophobic.

Then, playgrounds are not that heaven on the earth. There is such thing as vandalism. Nerdy teens may vandalize playgrounds - i.e. write rude words, draw inappropriate pictures (or "correct" them to an inappropriate manner); and this is a reason why these days children are mean (but not all). Trust me, I was experiencing that during a childhood. Then, same geeky dorks may also use drugs intensively, and dispose needles etc of in i.e. sandboxes (which causes childhood HIV infection) or other playground equipment.
Another thing to consider is also parenting. Kids always imprint everything from older people - especially parents and older siblings. Parents should show kids a good example and be a role model - this also relates to older siblings.
