perhaps it could be limited to children of people already in the forum....say an adult "sponsor" of the child, complete with adult password, making the adult responsible for replies, posted...thus insuring supervision, hopefully...with more stringent moderation of replies and content which would include a no-no to too much personal information...which would also be a good "primer" for parents to teach the kids about how to interact responsibly on the internet. I admit, I did not think of all the possible ramifications...my daughter simply wanted to know, "why can't I?" and I am wondering, "why can't she?" Admittedly,
there is much to think about.
