Safe Blogging for Kids?
The neighbor kids asked me to help them set up a website for them. I suggested a blog. Their parents are cool with the idea of them having a blog, but I want to be sure to make it as safe for them as possible. I already gave them the lecture on not posting private information (and we talked for a while about what that might be, etc.). But I’m concerned about people posting inappropriate comments (particularly since it will be obvious that it’s young kids posting, and I can just see some jerk sending them something inappropriate just for kicks).
My thought is to set the blog up with an adult (one of their parents, or myself) as the administrator, and the two kids as authors, and then set “moderate all comments”. Does that seem like a reasonable plan? Other suggestions?
They are busily thinking up screen names for themselves 😉
