The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this site sticks the tween label on girls as young as 6, yet some of the site's content -- like the advice column's discussion about obsessive crushes, as well as some of the games -- clearly isn't crafted for first graders. The site does encourage girls to earn up to 500 "goddess gold" pieces a day so they can buy things for their goddess. Girls can safely chat with other goddess friends who are on their invite-only list.

What's it about?
"There's a goddess in every girl," says GOGODDESS.COM. Girls start by watching a snippet about six modern goddess characters. Then they register -- with a parent's email permission for those under 13 -- and select from a girl-power list of user names and choose a symbol to identify themselves on the site. Girls can play games, chat with invited-only buddies on their list, keep a private journal, take quizzes, and enter contests.
Is it any good?
