KidSpirit Online presents a selection of candid and forthright ideas, personal stories, observations, and quotes from deep thinking teens. Kids from Hindi, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Mormon, and Baha'i traditions respond to questions on topics of faith, gender, and all manner of thought, opening up a world of perspectives for both adult and youthful readers. Kid authors exhibit evolving wisdom and confidence as part of the writing and publishing process -- the writing is heartfelt, relevant, and mature.

For kids looking to get involved online, submission guidelines can be tricky to locate, but once found, the Contribute page details everything from file format to best column to begin with (Global Beat). While the site's forums aren't that active, KidSpirit Online has active Facebook and Twitter communities. Overall, it's a thoughtful, non-judgemental place for teens to explore big ideas.

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.
