    ...and seeing how behave at the slight mention of some rather more 'adult' words, and even some less 'adult' words, I wouldn't like to think that any of them were on here. I don't mean shelter them and protect them from the unknown, the scary stuff that we all have been...

    Adult Issues And Adult Dangers

    I think EP is both inappropriate and unsafe for "tweens". It's very obvious who is an underage user and who isn't just by the way profiles are set up. Having an adult-centered site that has its membership open to children and then labels them as such just blatantly...

    No Entry

    I think they should be kept out,as you will get predators here like anywhere,we have to protect our youth,and be protected also,we also need to root out any predators in this EP.

    Not to Be Mean!

    I do have some in my circle who are 13 and below that age. They are very nice kids and I do enjoy talking with them. :-) BUT, my maternal instincts kick in and I worry like heck for them! EP is one of the nicer web-communities, but it is full of adults, who are talking...

    GO Away Little Kids!

    Let us adults play in our own space and be free from the censoring that has to be done to protect you little s$%ts from the real world.  :)

    It makes me cringe to know

    that there are 13-15 year olds reading some of the stories on here. I wish there was a way to block certain stories/experiences so that the youngsters can't see them.

    Not At All!

    I do not believe EP is the place for tweens. I just don't believe in allowing the kids here on EP. they should be out there out side having fun, playing dressed up, and **** like that, not sitting behind a computer screen. When I joined Ep, I was 17, almost 18, and I remember...

    Mature

    Teenagers should not be submitted to some of the context on EP. I believe there is also a legal precident behimd this type of behavior. Some parents do not know that their children are on this site and I am sure some may not agree with it. Some of the dirty content is not...

    It's Not Meant For Children

    I don't believe EP was meant for children. It disturbs me that they are on here because I know a lot of times people lie about theur ages on this sight. Those under thirteen and teenagers themselves pretend to be my age and those who are my age or older pretend to be teenagers. I...

    Because

    I think they have plenty of  online chat places...i use to be on gaia but it is creepy when a twenty two year old is chating with ten to twelve year olds... this is why I love EP so much...It is so many age ranges...and it is not all about sex.

    Not Appropriate

    Don't get me wrong, I think EP is a great place and don't know what I would do with it. However, like most sites it is not the place for tweens. There are far too many adult groups here and EP does have some weirdo and perverts. Those people are everywhere and with many parents...

    Then We Can Get Rid of These Stupid Asterisks!

    Kids already have their own places to post, all COPPA sanitized and all that. So, Hey, log out and go chase some cars, kid.

    Tweens? No

    I define a tween as someone under the age of 15-16. I think that members should @ leave have to be 16 to be on this site. Not because they don't deserve a place for support and understanding, but because there is SO much stuff on here, that children under the age of 15 should not...

    13???

    i was just told that Ep allows self-confessed 13 year olds to have a profile. Anyone else have stuff they shared that isn't appropiate for a 13 year old??

    Can't Say I Agree

    EP is amazing for helping people discover they are not alone. Why shouldn't tweens be allowed this comfort too?   I understand there's a lot of X-rated material on here that's not suitable for them, but you can change your settings can't you? So they blank the swearwords...

    A Good Example.. I Hope.....

    My main issue with this whole having kids on here is about their parents/carers letting them have access to such sites. But I just stumbled across something reassuring. I just joined a group made by one of  our younger members. But what was really nice, her mum is on here...
