My name is Wendy Hogan, I am the owner of Kids' Turn Central, formerly, Kids' Exchange at About.com. My job is to help children find things, and communicate safely, online.
As a parent I have the same concerns that you do about what my children do online, where they go, and, who they meet.
The Kids' Turn Central Chat room is a safe, monitored chat room. The room is only open when I, or an adult host are available. Anyone caught breaking the rules of chat are banned immediately.
The Kids' Turn Central - Forum is hosted by Delphi. It is a safe, fun place for kids to exchange questions, post answers and play games. As with the chat room, the forums are monitored daily and abuse is not tolerated. Membership at Delphi is required to access the forums. Membership is free. Children under 13 require parents permission.
The Links Library at Kids' Turn Central is a resources base of thousands of hand picked, personally reviewed web sites for kids. Sorted by categories, kids can find what they need fast. No adult content is ever linked. However, we can not be responsible if the original content is changed over time. We ask that these changes be reported immediately so we can remove or change the link.
The Search Box located at the top of every page at Kids' Turn Central will only search content at Kids' Turn Central.
