Sometimes the Internet is a generational divide. Indeed, parents do not always understand Internet kids games and other online entertainment: in their childhood, everything was different. The Internet can accomplish the opposite, however. One mother reunited with her children thanks, that’s right, to the Internet: a nerve-wracking story of 34 years long got a happy ending.
If we allow our sons and daughters to play kids games online, this most likely means more than just kids games websites are visited. Sooner or later, curiosity most likely brings kids to explore other online services. Both good and bad may come of kids’ communication online. Are you ready to sort it all out?
Game websites for kids, of course, are not the only place where young schoolchildren get together. But we’d still bet that there could hardly be more kid-attractive websites than ones with free games for kids. Although we would not at all mind if the situation were to change! And some wise people think that soon there will be more learning-oriented kids online… Games, step aside!

We think that education can! Or, more precisely, the learning process itself.
As we found out from an article in The Guardian, “Pupils do better at school if teachers are not fixated on test results.” This statement is based upon a study conducted by the Institute of Education, London.
We are proud to inform that Driving Kids are the sponsor of the Belarusian team at the 22nd International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI).

Fathers, if somebody tells you that free games for kids may replace free talks with you, that online free kids games are somehow more valued by children, do we have some good news for you! Those who say that “game websites for kids today are more authoritative for kids than the older generation” or “chatting on an online kids game with peeps is a better way to relax than talking in the dining room with old fogeys” don’t have their finger on the pulse of the younger generation.
“The secret to happiness – speak to your father”: we think this headline in The Telegraph has it right. “Young people who said they talked seriously to their dads ‘most days’ gave themselves an 87 per cent score on a happiness scale compared with 79 per cent for those who said they hardly ever spoke to their fathers in this way,” wrote the paper, based on findings made by the University of York and released by the Children’s Society.
Video games for kids are regarded in a special way in Australia. A few months ago we wrote that some virtual sports activities there are regarded as a substitute for real ones. Recently we found out about Australian parents’ attitude towards the video games kids can play. “More than 90 per cent of Victorian parents believe video games can improve their children’s motor skills and problem-solving abilities,” we read in the Herald Sun (Australia).
If you had to choose between free games for kids and free educational games, what would you prefer? With summer at its height, and kids far, far away from their classrooms, children’s games with an educative bent are especially timely!
“Keeping kids learning over summer break is essential,” states Nancy Cecil, a professor of education at Sacramento State (California, U.S.), as we read in The Sacramento Bee’s encouraging article “Hundreds of apps can help kids learn this summer.”

Kids, do your moms know how you find new kids games websites? Do your fathers have any idea what online game for kids is your favorite one? Parents, do you know what your child does online?
A new study conducted by StrategyOne was focused “on the gaps between parents and kids with respect to their online beliefs and behaviors,” as we read on SocialTimes.com.
Summer’s the best time for new kids games! There’s a lot of time to play kids games outside, trade ideas for cool games for kids with the neighbor boys and girls… But it looks like this summer, the playgrounds in our parks won’t see as many children’s games as they could.
According to a new U.S. survey of parents with kids ages 18 and under, released by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and conducted by Zogby International, “nearly 30 percent of parents report their kids will spend more time online this summer than they did during the school year,” we read on StaySafeOnline.org.
