As my kids are getting older they are asking more and more to go on the computer and explore websites and play games. I have a tough time with this because I know what the internet is like. So I sat down and went on a hunt for some great websites for kids, that they could play on and be safe. I set up a folder for them and now when they ask, I will log them in and click whichever website they want to go to and they can sit at the table and play. I don’t have to help them, but I do watch them.
I try to find the most educational games, but that can sometimes be boring so I’ve got a mix. A lot of these websites I haven’t heard of before, but my kids rather enjoy playing them when given the chance.

There are SO many great websites on the internet for kids. Safe, Fun and Educational it just takes time to find ones that are worthwhile. My kids have played all the above and really enjoy them. I still NEVER leave my kids alone on the internet. I am always sitting close by on the couch or at the table. Yep, I’m one of those moms. You can just never be too careful. We also have parenting filters set up and a very long block list.
Online safety is no joke, and talking to kids about online behaviour and bullying is a great idea as well. You can find some advice on this on Broadband Search if you need some guidance.
