If you have older kids as I do, 10 and 12, than you know that they want to be online, like constantly. My daughter is an aspiring blogger and my son has been begging for his own YouTube channel. The problem with that is how do I keep them from getting spammy and inappropriate emails? Well, I am glad you asked. Enter Kidsemail.org an email provider with your kids online safety in mind. I was lucky enough to have a dear blogger friend who gave me this nifty little tip.
OK, so registration is a breeze and everyone gets a 30 day free trial, you don’t even have to enter any payment information.
After you are all signed up it is time to add the kids and pick their email addresses.
This part is super simple. Just make sure to make the email address something that is easy to remember. You can also customize the look of your child’s background…
Once you have added your kids it is time to set some safety features…
Setting Safety Features
Parents are able to receive a copy of all incoming and/or outgoing email that is sent to/from your child. This is a simple setting that can be enabled/disabled if desired.
You can choose to restrict times of the day and days of the week that your child can login. You can even ground them for a certain period of time and display a custom message from you when they attempt to log in!
THE MAIL QUEUE
The Mail Queue allows the parent to intercept an email that failed the safety rules that you set for your child (such as someone not in their contact list attempting to send them an email). The parent can then approve the email to be sent to their child or deny and remove the email from the mail queue.
If you allow your child to receive email from anyone, you can still block specific people by adding them to a custom blacklist.
You can add family and friends to your child’s contact list. You can also deny the sending and/or receiving of emails to/from anyone not belonging to that child’s contact list.
We don’t offer any advertising on our site! So your child will never see anything inappropriate.
We work hard to keep spam out of your kids email inbox! Parents can rest assured that their child won’t get inappropriate spam in their inbox.
CUSTOM MAILBOX FOLDERS
Your child can create their own custom mail folder to organize received email.
After setting the safety features that best suit your child’s needs you can add people to their approved contacts.
Approved Contacts List
Only those people on your child’s contact list may send them emails. if someone outside of their contact list sends them an email you will get notified and must approve it before your child can read it. You can also set features of what is allowed in the emails that your child sends and receives. You can choose to not allow links to outside sites or pictures.
As well as web platforms such as Chrome and Internet Explorer.
As you can see the price is very reasonable, but let’s be honest your child’s online safety is invaluable.
My two oldest children have been asking for their own email addresses for months. I did not want to give in because as an adult with an adult email address I can attest to the kinds of inappropriate emails that I receive daily. Not only that but the sheer amount of spam is mind boggling. I am so glad that I was steered towards kidsemail.org. I can feel confident now that my kids will be able to safely send and receive emails. The pricing is great and so are the many available safety features. I shared this site with my monthly moms group and they are all going to get email addresses for their kids now.
As a parent I am sure you will agree that keeping our children safe is our #1 priority. Whether it be in the real world or online. The people at Kidsemail.org have your families safety set as their top priority and I feel confident that my kids online activities are being monitored by me.
