I have a 6 year old who is very curious with everything around her. She asks us endless questions and we are very happy about that. She knows that her Mom works online but hasn’t fully grasped what working online is. Considering the fact that I am always online, some people may think that our little one is probably accustomed to being online herself but she’s not. She’s never really gone online. Honestly, I really don’t know the right age a kid should be allowed to explore the online world or the world wide web as we all know it.
I have come across a lot of sites that claim to be kid friendly. I tried to check some of them to see if any of those sites can be a site our little one can go to but so far, I have not found one that I can really say is appropriate for her age. There are some educational sites that I will probably allow her to visit but I also want something where she can have fun and play. One site that I have come across that is designed for kids ages from 8 -12 is Dizzywood. My daughter has not met the age requirements yet but I still went and checked it. I really like what I have seen so far.
One of the things that attract me to the site is their aim to provide environmental awareness to kids. As a matter of fact, they just announced that in honor of Earth Day, players in their site can plant a virtual tree. By doing so, the players will see the good effects of planting trees to Dizzywood like the clearing of polluted skies. But that’s not the best part, for every virtual tree planted in Dizzywood, a real tree will be planted on Earth through a partnership with Arboy Day Foundation! Isn’t that great? Now I know where I will let my little go in the online world once she’s of age….Dizzywood.
