Social network services are popular among the adults, but should it be the same for kids? According to Retrevo.com report “Parenting and Social Media,” social networks are not for kids of pre-school and early school age: only 8% of respondents marked the age of 12 and lower as appropriate time to join social media.
The best time to create a profile in social network is when children are 16-18 years old, 36% of parents suppose. Although if your teenager is a little bit younger, 13 or older, it also might be OK (30% of parents think so).
Childhood is a magic time when kids play games and learn new skills. Kids don’t need to “escape” the real world like some adults do using social media. For kids Internet should be rather a place for learning and smart playing than for wasting time!
Driving Kids joins parents who prefer children websites with kids’ online games to social media. Pre-school and early school kids should be provided with special playful and children-friendly services like websites with educational kids’ games where it’s easy and safe to play and to meet new friends.
That’s why children who play our online kids’ game are invited to play free educational games and to communicate online in safe kids’ chat. Boys and girls who can play online games but not yet familiar with typing are welcomed to exchange small icons with smiles and useful signs.
Playing in Driving Kids, children don’t have to upload their real photos or enter certain personal data like full address, phone number. Kids have many interesting things to do instead of sharing private info or talking about something what touches the adults only!
And we would like parents don’t leave kids online alone. Even the best free online games for kids and the best websites with kids’ games will never take place of caring parents and teachers: all we agree with this, but do we always remember about it?
