So Many Kid Sites, So Little Time

Posted: 09/01/11 05:10 PM ET

Saying that there are a ton of sites for kids on the Internet is like saying there's a lot of sand on the beach. Sifting through all the sites out there to find the good and avoid the bad can be quite the daunting task especially with all the new sites popping up. Should my kids play games online? Is there a safe place for them to explore the web? How secure are the sites that my kids are visiting? There are so many questions and so many sites.

We decided to take stab are looking at some of the many sites out there to help you out. Below are some of the sites we found that cater to kids between the ages of 4 and 13 or so and are worth taking a look at for a variety of reasons.

Of course, every child is different and not every site will work for every situation. Take the time to visit these sites with your kids using this list as an easy starting point.
