My oldest daughter adores this website.

My oldest daughter loves to go on Sweety High, she goes on it almost every day. She has made lots of friends through Sweety High, but I have one problem. There is a little bit of romantic content I don't want Angeline (my oldest daughter) to see, she's still a little bit too young. I would recommend this site for kids 8-13. Have a great day. -Lisa R.

Poor Communication

I received an email at 6:58 PM on August 9th, 2012 to notify me that effective August 9th, 2012 Sweety High parental accounts will no longer be available. Very poor communication to delete the parental account and notify you after the fact. If you want to monitor or change anything for your daughter you will now have to login under the username and password of your daughter. So if your child then decided to change their password you then no longer have access to see anything that they are posting. In the 6 months or so that my daughter has been on this website I have not felt the need to monitor everything she does on the website but liked knowing I had the ability to view or delete anything she posted. I only ever accessed the parental account in the first week to make sure I knew how to navigate the site if I ever did need to review what my daughter was doing or delete anything. I don't appreciate the website taking that away without any prior warning. Overall my 11 year old likes the website and I feel it is a good alternative to other social media websites that children are drawn to that were not created for children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (44 ):

Sweety High has some fun features and a stylish design. The video channels offer entertaining, well-produced fare, and some of the contests encourage creativity, like asking girls to write a song for the chance to duet with a well-known performer. The social networking features go beyond the basics -- girls can give each other hearts and gifts, and in turn, they'll earn karma points that unlock extra rewards. Sweety High does a good job creating a safe, positive atmosphere, and users' comments are encouraging and upbeat.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
