KidsEmail – A safe email for your child
Miss Sassy Pants has been wanting to have her own email address for quite some time, but I’ve always resisted. All of the free emails that exist aren’t free of possible inappropriate ads, and other than logging in as her, I wouldn’t be able to really monitor too well. When I had the opportunity to try out KidsEmail, I jumped at the chance.
KidsEmail is a completely safe email that allows parents to monitor what their child will be reading and/or sending. The Parental Controls section allows me to choose if I see her incoming and outgoing messages, to create her contact list, to allow attachments or images, and to filter out bad words. I tried to give her as much freedom as possible, but I know that she’s not going to be emailing anyone but her little friends or her dad and grandparents.
So far, Miss Sassy Pants has been excited to read emails from her friends that have moved further away or to tell her dad that she loves him. She doesn’t have much patience to sit there and write an extended note, but she’s learning how to hit “reply” and “send” and how to check her inbox.
If you’re looking for a way to use a safe email for your child (even teenagers!), KidsEmail is the way to go. Prices are not too steep — but who can really put a price on their child’s safety?
