"Get Your Chat On" - Free Chat Sites For You and the Kids

The best things in life are free!

And, when you're lonely - or simply want to participate in an online environment where you can be who you want to be and meet other people, it's always nice to find free chat sites  to "get your chat on" in. What's even more fun is the virtual video chat rooms that provides to people...but, for those of you who want more...

You can join a multi-people video chat, create a friends list, and share photos and files. Or...

Hop into an Avatar chat, where a fun virtual world awaits you, decked out with a cafe, park, restaurant, game room and hotel.

Chat Rooms for Kids

Just the concept of  chat room for kids can certainly spur up some interesting debates and conversations in a circle of parents. Do you allow your children to participate in chat rooms? Do you encourage chat room environments for children? Do you think online chat rooms for children are safe? How can you protect your children while they are participating in chat rooms?

For those of you parents who do allow their children to participate in chat rooms:

  • Do you monitor your child's chat room activities?
  • Do you talk about chat room etiquette and safety with them?
  • How do you know that your children are safe? 

I, personally, try to divert my children to sites where there friends from school hang out, and then monitor their activities, as well. In my opinion, you cannot be too overprotective regarding your children and the Internet. So, allow them only on well-known websites and ensure that the chat rooms that they are participating in are safe - and monitored by you, the parent!

Do you allow your children to participate in online chat rooms for kids? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
