    Luckily my boys, although they love to play computer games, aren’t too into trying to connect socially with other people on the computer (yet). I am concerned that they will not know how to handle “friends” making inappropriate or mean comments. I plan to make sure I have access to their accounts as long as possible, so I can at least monitor things and keep the lines of communication open. Thanks Lindsey!

  2. My biggest concern is cyber bullying. Sometimes you don’t even know it is going on. My email is myprayerpillows@gmail.com

  3. Street_musician says:

    I am always nervous that inappropriate images will pop up on ads.

  4. Laura says:

    Great idea for the 13 year old in the house. We currently only allow a limited amount of computer time & we keep track of activity by using WebWatcher, but this is a nice addition

  5. Brandi says:

    What a wonderful idea!

  6. Meg McCormick says:

    MouseMail sounds like exactly what my 6.5 year old needs! I will def. check it out.

  7. Stephanie Mattos says:

    I am always concerned that my son will click on an ad image and it will take him somewhere he really doesnt need to be!

  8. Melissa Christensen says:

    Definitely going to use this when the time comes and pass on info to friends. thanks for the great tips!!

  9. rulefollower says:

    This is awesome! I might be able to use this in my classroom! Thanks!

  10. Agregor1 says:

    My biggest concern for my students is that we will spend so much time warning about Internet dangers and trying to protect them from what’s out there that they won’t get a chance to learn the amazing capabilities it gives them. Once a week in my classroom we spend an hour learning a new Internet skill and how to use it safely and productively.

  11. Megan F. says:

    Of course I worry about my kids seeing inappropriate things online…but I also worry a lot about cyber bullying. It has become so prevelant these days, and the fact that it can be done so easily, (and anonymously!) is really sad and scary.

  12. rafdarrow says:

    My biggest concern is that although my kids are well educated about internet, they will become stubborn as teenagers and think bad things will never happen to them – and all those rules will fly out the window.

  13. Ann Clark says:

    My biggest concern is all the inappropriate things out there for them to see . All I can do is watch em like a hawk.

  14. Jasmine J says:

    I think my biggest concern would be my child chatting with a child predator thinking it’s another child and possibly giving out our address or where she goes to school. Just the thought makes me shudder!

  15. Amy Tong says:

    My biggest concern is my kids click into websites that they shouldn’t. My 3 and a half year old son loves sending emails to his grandparents. I set up my account to automatically get a copy/record on all emails that he sent out and received. But I do need to sit with him most of the time when he uses the lap top and internet. That’s about the only way to be 100% safe.

  16. JBJ says:

    My 7 and 8 year olds have their own computer set up in the livingroom. As of right now they only play games on them, I have concerns but they need to learn somewhere I like the idea of this email program.

  17. Karina says:

    my biggest concern is that they’ll click on something inappropriate

  26. My biggest concern about my son being online is all of the hidden messages that he doesn’t get yet. He likes to watch Thomas the Train and other train videos on Youtube. Thought he’s never online without me there with him, I am surprised at the number of videos that are of Thomas the Train doing or saying adult things. They always start out as regular Thomas videos, and then turn nasty. Though I’m quick to turn them off, I truly hope he doesn’t get their meaning.

  27. Cardprincess says:

    My biggest concern is that I have seen adults view pornography at the library, even though there is a rule against it. I have walked by and seen it, so kids can walk by and see it too!

    While I like the concept of MouseMail, I’m not in any hurry to let my son (age 6) have email. In all honesty, he hasn’t been asking to have email, and that’s just fine with me. All he wants to do on the computer is play games. My biggest pet peeve with gaming sites are the links that take you to OTHER game sites and yet OTHER game sites ad nauseum. It’s maddening how sly retailers/etc. have wormed their way into the most unassuming locations for children online, and I’m afraid MouseMail is no exception. That said, maybe with time they’ll work out all the kinks with feedback from moms, etc. ūüôā

  29. Kelli MW says:

    Wow. A 7 yr old wants to start a blog?! I have a 6 1/2 yr old on the same path… I’m officially screwed. That being said, the limits MouseMail seem to place on children like yours seem to be right up my alley. Can’t wait to try it.

  30. Cindy G says:

    My 7 y/o asked me for a facebook page so she can talk back and forth with family. I said no ūüôā
    This mousemail sounds good though. Currently, she is allowed on KidZui only and she must be supervised online.

  36. ACV says:

    My son is 14 months and doesn’t use the computer yet, but of course I’d be worried in the future about him accidentally stumbling across an inappropriate site or image. But maybe even more than that, I don’t want him to spend too much time online, which I know will get more difficult the older he gets.

  37. charlesandsara says:

    I haven’t let my sons (4 and 2) use the computer yet – I feel like kids are starting way too early these days (now I sound old – LOL). I’m holding off as long as I can.

  38. Laura Cooper says:

    While I know kids will perform searches at some point, one of my biggest worries are the click on ads that pop up everywhere.¬† It is impossible to block them all and sometimes they redirect a person to places I don’t want my kids to go.¬† Even if the ads are not porn related they are misleading and annoying and often haven viruses or trojans.

    This is really interesting, as I work with technology and kids. Parents are always looking for tools like this so I will have my eye on this one. My kiddo plays online a lot but only under supervision and I will continue that for the forseeable future. I am more worried about what he will come across at friends’ houses, between web sites and violent video games. I’m actually already thinking, years ahead, about how to have conversations about that before playdates (“Is there a gun in your house? Do you let your kid play Grand Theft Auto?”)..

    I’m very concerned about my son coming in contact with adult-oriented material on the web. ¬†I know when I was young, I came across things by accident that I’d never want him seeing. ¬†I also know that it’s even easier to find it now. ¬†I’ll be installing some sort of filtering software on the computer as he starts using the computer more.

    Based on the BlogHer page on this, I gave this a try. My 9 y/o has been begging for an e-mail account for some time now, but I’ve hesitated because I want an easy way to monitor what’s coming and going in her account.

    So, I set it up for her, and she LOVES IT. This was a great tip and a really fun promotion. She checks her e-mail daily, sent her Dad a text message through their text message interface, and taken the little quizzes on the program. Great find!

    It’s definitely the content online that scares me.¬† I am not too worried about predators, but I am still cautious.¬† I don’t allow them to use social networks, except for blogging.¬† I allow them to only use children’s web browsers and I set time limits. I have the computer password protected too.¬† It helps to keep the computer in a central area. I think these things have worked well for me.

    I actually do not have kids of my own, but if I did, this would be
    something I would definitely check out and probably use. My own
    personal opinion is that the family PC should be in the main living area
    or kitchen of the house and only used when parents are home. I know
    that is easier said than done but I think it would really cut back on
    misuse and problems from meeting strangers online, which would def be my biggest fear as a parent.

The things our kids have to learn and endure at such as young age is the MOST. FRIGHTENING. THING. I have encountered as a mom.

  201. Susan says:

    I actually see far more risk for children via social networking sites on the web than through email, but a monitored email account is a very good idea, too.  I truly believe that the only ways we can prevent kids from finding things that we would not like them to encounter online are first to talk to them in an age appropriate manner about why the concern exists- and do this often; use every filtering and monitoring option available; and then constantly check what is being sent and received.  I also think the computer should be in a very high traffic area of the household.

    My biggest concern is unknown people approaching my son and gaining his trust – online predators are crafty and even though my son knows not to give out his name or address, I’ve seen news reports where they can figure out who your child is from school t-shirts, mascots, sports/activites they’re involved in, etc.
