As a child, I was asked to write letters to my grandparents. What percentage of people write letters over emailing these days? I think this discussion has gotten away from what this app does and on to how our culture exposes children to adult topics too soon (which we do). I heard about this app a while ago - the intention was to take kids using the Internet and filter it through a safe app - with email too. We need to face it - millennial kids are growing up in a different world than we did. In 2006, ninety percent of 3 year old used a computer and sixty percent use the Internet. This is the world they live in. I believe this app was intended to give parental control over this fact (and no, I don't work or have an interest in this company). Kids emailing is not inherently bad. Writing and sentence compositition are good things. With that said, parents need to control the accounts, monitor the communication at this age, and have them email family ... Like we wrote letters when we were kids.View Thread
