kmail_logo_zps5f9zg7ifMy family has recently had the opportunity to review something I think is rather unique. It is a one-year subscription to Kids Email Safe Email for Kids from KidsEmail.org.  My son has been given the opportunity to use an email account outfitted with many safety features perfect for kids.

My kids have had email accounts for a while.  My husband has it set up so every email that comes or goes from the accounts also goes to one of his accounts.  We’ve had no trouble at all so far.  Honestly, very few of my kids friends use email any more so it hasn’t been much of a burden. But when the chance to review this product came through we thought it’d be interesting to see if there was some way my kids could get more out of email.

This is an email service that protects children from ads, popups, spam, and junk mail. The most wonderful thing about KidsEmail.org is all of the parental controls available to you.

What We Thought

My oldest son is 12 and after a couple of years of using a regular email account he didn’t see much sense in the new program but he rolled with it.  I asked him to try and think of people to email.  He mostly just ended up emailing me just for purposes of the review.  His email account is primarily so he can have an address to log in with for homeschool related online programs. There is a drawing board feature.  He thought it was fun to add some drawings and all sorts of pictures to the emails he was sending me.

There are some fun email templates.  Children can switch up how the emails look with fun colors and drawings.  My son wasn’t much into them as they were rather cutesy but I thought it was a great thing.  Anything to be unique.

KidsEmail.org is pretty intuitive and easy to learn how to use.  The parent controls are what make the program for me.  I’m sure I receiving copies of all emails coming and going and limiting who can email your child is something a lot of parents will like.

I think the most challenging thing for us really didn’t have anything to do with the program itself but something else I feared… not too many of the people he’d like to communicate with are actively using email.  All of my children’s friends prefer Facetime and texting.  He is even texting his grandparents these days.

If emailing is a thing that is important to your family and you want to be super vigilant about online safety in emails then I highly recommend this program. They have a great try before you buy the program so you can decide for yourself if this is a program for your family.  You can find out more about that on their website.  You can also find them on social media on FacebookTwitterPinterestInstagram, and Google+.
