Are your kids itching to get on social media but you’re not sure they are ready for it yet? Most social media sites are designed for adults and can be dangerous places for children. When trying to protect children it’s a hard call to make, right? Are they mature enough for it? What and who will they be exposed to? There are a lot of difficult decisions to make and the realm of social media can be really hard to monitor as a parent.
There is now a new option for social media for kids. It’s called KidMix, and it’s the first social network designed by parents for kids ages 5-12. It’s a new way for kids to arrange their own playdates and to connect with their friends. The best part is that KidMix is a private, secure, monitored environment. It’s a great option for a first step towards teaching your kids about social media and online communication in a realm where you, as a parent, can feel more comfortable. With KidMix your kids can learn how to use social media in a safe positive way and can gain independence by planning some of their own activities while you are able to simply accept, deny, or change them.
This app can be used to connect with their classmates, relatives, sports teams, neighbors, camp friends, and all kinds of other friendships. Your kids can message friends, share their ideas and pictures, while you as a parent can monitor all of their activity using the KidMix integrated parent dashboard. This dashboard also allows you to set parameters of how you want your children to use the network and it allows you to monitor all of their invitations.
KidMix is kidSAFE COPPA + Certified. This means that all members are verified according to the FTC’s compliancy law for child online privacy protection. They use a robust parental ID verification process that requires parents to verify their ID before they’re allowed to create an account, helping to ensure that all members are not only who they say they are, but are using the platform with both parental awareness and permission. The registration process is simple, quick, and best of all, FREE!
If you are looking for a way to ease your children into social media and for them to connect with their friends this summer, why not try KidMix?
