Recent studies have shown that children are using computers and the Internet at increasingly early ages. With proper guidance and supervision, the time they spend online can serve as both entertaining and educational.
If your little ones are tech-savvy, you might be looking for safe, appropriate websites to try. Maybe you’re looking for websites that can give you craft and activity ideas to do with your child(ren). Or maybe you’re looking for websites where parents can interact with one another, exchange ideas and advice and arrange meet-ups.
Every Wednesday, the PTLL blog will feature a website that may be of interest to you and/or your kids. Feel free to visit the website and let us know what you think in the comments! If you have a recommendation for “Wednesday Websites” send an email to Emily – firstname.lastname@example.org
