    At what age should a kid be allowed to have a personal email account?

    My daughter is 8 and told me a lot of her friends have email accounts. She now wants one too. Any thoughts?

    I think as long as it is supervised I don't think there is anything wrong with it.

    Yeah I have to agree, with all the trash in this world. It would have to be supervised.

    I agree any age is ok as long as you keep an eye one it. With the way technology is expanding kids are going to use it earlier and earlier its just a matter of making sure that they are safe. But it will mostly rest on your comfort level with letting your daughter have an email address

    It depends a lot on the kid and how mature they are, and should be supervised no matter what. If she is a responsible kid and you can make sure she's using it properly, 8 doesn't sound too young.

    We set it up for her. It was funny when i asked her to make up a password. I assumed she would use her dogs name or something like that. Instead she picked something like "k38nl5t1q".

    I was thinking the same thing. She seems to remember it. She's been checking email regularly.

    Its funny how kids are. I remember when I was a kid I used to have a hard time understanding how some adults would forget the most mundane things. Now that I am an adult myself I totally see why those mundane things are forgotten.
