What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the aim of this site is to show girls what it's like to be a Girl Scout (or a Daisy or Brownie, as the younger scouts are called) -- all by promoting character, kindness, and responsibility. The site requires no membership and is easy to navigate, meaning anyone can enjoy the wholesome games and quizzes and ask questions. It does link to the main Girl Scouts site.

What's it about?

Girls will enjoy spending time on GOGIRLSONLY.ORG, whether or not they're curious about the Girl Scouts. There are quizzes tailored to preteen concerns and the opportunity to email questions to "Dr. M. and Molly," a therapist and a teenager who address questions about friendship, menstruation, and body image. The game called "Uniquely Me" lets girls create a virtual collage by answering questions like "favorite color" and "someone I admire" and then dragging icons into a frame to create a printable poster celebrating their favorite things. Other links explain how a Daisy graduates to being a Brownie and finally a Scout, a very complicated process involving lots of steps.

Is it any good?

GoGirlsOnly.org is a cute and colorful site whose only downside is that the content is a little thin. But what is there promotes healthy self-image and environmental awareness, along with the traditional Girl Scout values of character, kindness, and responsibility -- qualities that never go out of style.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it means to be a part of a group. You can look at the site together and discuss the long history of the Girl Scouts. Was Mom a Girl Scout? Or Grandma? Look on the alumnae page to find out about Girl Scouts from the previous generations. How have things changed? How can you promote the ideals of what being a Scout is all about in everyday life?
