We live in a world where technology is in almost every home. With technology, people are able to communicate with friends and family from all over the world. While there are many email options for adults, kids have a harder time getting an email account that is safe for them to use. This can be a thing of the past with Kids Email. We have been spending time using our subscription to Kids Email Safe Email for Kids.
Kids Email is a safe email program for kids to use. This gives them the freedom to connect family and friends while being safe and protected from unwanted emails. This means that they won’t get those nasty spam emails that we deal with as adults. They also won’t get emails from unknown people who could cause danger to your children.
With Kids Email, you as the parent, have control over the account. You will be able to set up the account for your child in the way that you see fit. There are options for younger kids and older kids, including teens. We used this with Ray Ray (9) and Little Miss (6), so we used the kids account for both of them.
There are numerous options to make this email experience one fo the best for both you and your child. The one that I really loved was the contact manager. My kids could not get emails from anyone who I did not previously approve. If an email comes to their account from an unapproved contact, it goes to my account first. I have to approve the contact to email my kids before my kids even knew they were getting that email.
Now, my kids don’t use this email on any devices other than the computers on the main living floor. If they had access to their emails from other devices, I could set time limits on their accounts. This means that I could set a time, during the night or school hours, that they could not access their account.
We have family that lives close to us. That means that the kids don’t typically need to email anyone. However, we had the chance to connect with other homeschool families who also had access to Kids Email Safe Email for Kids. They were able to make new friends from all over the world!
The first thing the kids wanted to do was to customize their email accounts. They were able to pick their backgrounds, and I was able to give them an email with @kmail instead of @kidsemail. While my kids were not too worried about this feature, others may not want their friends to know they have a “kids email” account.
Since we don’t have family far away from us, we haven’t been using the email as often as others may. However, we have been checking it at least once a week. The kids love to read their new emails, but they don’t always like taking the time to write back. In fact, they often ask me to do the typing while they tell me what to write.
The kids loved having the option of meeting new friends from around the world, and I loved that they could email without the worry of the spam or unknown people emailing. They loved having their own email account, and I loved being in control of it without being a control freak.
