All Mom-tested, Mom•Logic approved.


Stardoll: Combines social networking with online gaming. Girls ages 10-17 can play games, create a MeDoll and put them in a scene with a celebrity stardoll like Zac Efron, and chat with cyber friends if given written parental permission. Stardoll also notifies parents if kids are on the the site for an extended period of time.

Whyville: Perfect for budding entrepreneurs and politicians. "Citizens" can write for its newspaper, start a business, buy a car and earn "clams." You cannot access the site unless you receive parental permission and take a "chat license test."

Imbee: Tweens create their own avatars, write blogs, share trading cards, upload videos, and join groups. Parents sign kids up and there are built-in security settings with age-appropriate parameters for your child.

Allykatzz: A safe, monitored social networking site for girls ages 10-15 that lets them see the world through the eyes of other girls. It not only gives tweens the chance to interact, but also shares news that matters to kids and parents.

Yamod: A safe alternative to YouTube for kids age 14 and younger, combining social networking with video and photo sharing.

Is the Yamod link correct. This is exactly what my 9year old has been asking for. I think he’s too young for youTube.

You guys should check out ( It is by far the best social networking website for teens and tweens. It is exclusive to just us (no older people) and there are many cool other features that myspace and facebook don’t have like shopping, goal-setting, an other planning tools to keep you on top of school and social plans. Def check it out.

I agree with Sara. Check out It’s the safest site I have seen for teen / tween social networking and has some really cool tools, some even educational. My parents actually encourage me to go on Scallyroo, if you can believe it.

@Markus I get your drift on where you were going there. I often think of my past and use it as a means to analyze where I am and where I want to get to. Where I struggel is balancing it all out. How do you guys balance things out?
