Hi,

I've a 9 year old boy that loves the web, obviously want to steer him clear of the dodgy stuff but also want to keep his interest levels up ... so that one day he can keep me in the manner to which I wish I was accustomed Money mouth

Anyone know of any good sites for him to look at? He already goes to Miniclips, and all the major "telly" sites like Disney, Nickel etc etc ... am looking for other stuff for him. If anyone knows of anything educational yet interesting, that would be awesome.

Thanks to any people who reply in advance.

My 8 year old loved nick.co.nz/.com, I think he's a bit bored of it now tho.  He played around on http://www.disney.com.au/DisneyChannel/ for a bit too and is now visiting http://www.clubpenguin.com/

He doesn't get a lot of Internet time but I'll ask him tomorrow to see if he has any others that he wants to share :)

There is an extension for Firefox called Glubble that will transform Firefox into a child-friendly web browser, with nice large buttons, thumbnails for bookmarks and gives you full control. It also comes with a variety of trusted websites and if they deviate you have to provide a password to let them access websites that aren't in the trusted zone. Might be worth a look.
