KidsEmail.Org Try it Free! One Lucky Winner Gets a Year Free! #SafeEmail4Kids

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

One lucky winner is going to get 1 Year of KidsE-Mail.org (a $38.95 value) to call their own! Why is that a big deal? Well because this isn't an ordinary e-mail system. It is better...way better! Kids Email is a safe alternative for kids that allows them to communicate via the ever-popular format of e-mail, while at the same time helping to ensure they are safe. I know my youngest has asked to create e-mail and social media accounts and I gave him a big fat no for both requests. He's just too young to even know what it means to be responsible in these arenas, and takes most things online at face value, even though I've told him repeatedly that not everything you see or hear online is true. ;)



With the Kids E-Mail, I can definitely tell him 'yes' the next time he asks for e-mail. So, what makes this kind of electronic communication unique? Pull up a chair...this could take awhile. :) 

First and foremost, it allows you to set up time restrictions. Say little Johnny has been naughty and has gotten grounded from all use of electronics. Little Johnny may want to alert his friends via e-mail that he is grounded (*ahem*), but with Kids E-Mail, mom or dad has already put a custom message on his now-temporarily-blocked e-mail, letting him know that signing on is a 'no go.' I shouldn't laugh at this feature, but I totally did when picturing any one of my kids trying to secretly defy being grounded and coming upon a homemade 'mom message' instead. That is the type of thing that incites storytelling that will last generations to come around here. "Remember when mom did this (or that)?" Bwuahahaha.

You can also put time restrictions on the e-mail so they can't access it when you want them to be focusing on other things (like sleep). I remember my daughter went through a 'text all night' mode when she first got her phone. It is thanks to her that her younger brother now has to leave his phone on the kitchen counter with mine, when he heads off to retire for the night. ;)

Another great feature: there are no ads. This is a very big deal to me. Not all ads are created equal, and though it may seem silly to some, I don't want my youngest bombarded with 'alcohol is wonderful,' overly risqué words and images, and/or ads that are dark in nature (just three types of ads that instantly came to mind, I'm sure there are many other kinds I wouldn't be overly fond for him to see either). I don't keep him in a bubble, but my thought process is, why expose his very young mind to junk when he doesn't yet have to see it?

There are a lot of other great features too, such as the ability to remove images or links if you'd like; being able to monitor and/or set parameters for who can contact your child, or who they can (or cannot) contact; spam filtering; offensive word omission, and many more customizable features that will help you feel your child is able to participate and be safe doing so.

It's a great way to introduce the system of e-mail to your children, in an environment that doesn't make you worry. I know the new trend at my son's school is for kids to ask for his e-mail to send birthday party invites. I have always given my e-mail, but I know it would be fun for him to give his own. With KidsEmail.org, it's definitely a possibility.

It's Reasonably Priced ($2.99 a month), but
You Can Try it for Free!

If you purchase the service, it's only $38.95 billed at $2.99 a month), which is very reasonable. BUT KidsEmail.org is so convinced you are going to love what they have to offer, that everyone who visits can try this multiple award-winning service for a limited time, free! Learn more

  1. Christopher has asked me can he use his email to get "free stuff". Big fat no. I told him his account would be ruined with SPAM and there's no such thing as free.

  2. This would be good for my niece and nephew. They sometimes need an email address to sign up for kiddie freebies or they want to keep in contact with relatives (too young for Facebook) so this is a great alternative!

  5. I might want this for myself! Yahoo mail is not honoring my filter list and many spam mails I get are disgusting- filthy porn.

  6. haha that is great with the messages and time limit. No ads too, as some can be rather questionable. Could always let him keep his phone and get a cellphone jammer.

  11. This is so great for giving parents the piece of mind. This is definitely a service I will be looking into when my daughter is a bit older.

  12. This is so important. We just moved out of this stage, my son is now almost 14 and I still have to stay vigilant in all other aspects of social media, not just his email!

  14. I've never heard of this before but I am certainly aware of what the internet can bring to our kids. I would love to check this out. It's really important for me to keep my kids safe.

  15. My children are all grown ups now and email was not yet that popular when they were younger. As a parent, I understand that we must do everything in our means to protect our child. I will let my sister know bout this. She's got two kids, 11 and 13 years old.

  16. I do think that a kid feels special and "grown-up" when he or she has a specialized email account.
    However, I do like the restrictions parents are able to use to keep this privilege in check.

  17. This is a great service because it is important to monitor and be aware of your kids email and social media habits. I love that you can block them when you need to.

  18. This couldn't be better timing. My kids are all asking for their own email. Even my youngest wants an email. This will help keep them safe.

  20. It can be scary to let your kids go online. Love that companies are figuring out how to keep our kids safe.

  21. I think I tested this out a while back and loved it. My kids are a little too old now for it but I fully think it's great for parents of kids learning email. We need to keep the kiddos safe :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I only wished my grand daughter would listen to me. It's so important that we keep our kids safe online.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've heard of this! Will definitely look into it again when my son is a little older. Sounds like a great service!
