A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Like most social networking sites, there's some rude and nonsensical content on profiles and in comments, but the overall feeling is positive.

Violence
Sex

No overt sexual content, but a few of the profiles feature photos of shirtless boys and some cheeky comments.

Language
Consumerism

There's an online store selling the Kids Who Rip DVD series. No other ads.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Not widespread, but at least one profile has a drug reference: "Nemo Couldn't Find You Because You Were Out Getting High."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a social networking site for kids who love X Games-style sports -- snowboarding, kiteboarding, skateboarding, surfing, bike racing, and more. There's a bit of questionable content in the member profiles, but overall it's a positive place for kids with a common passion.

What's it about?

KIDSWHORIP.COM bills itself as a place \"where kids and their families can connect with other kids and families and share photos and videos about their hobbies, their achievements and their dreams.\" Members can create profiles and post videos or photos of their latest tricks, races, and awards for comment by other members. Parental permission is required for membership to kids under 13.

Is it any good?

For kids who are into X Games sports, KidsWhoRip.com is a great place to meet kindred spirits, share tips and tricks, and just-plain show off. But it is a social networking site, so your family's standard rules apply here as they do to Facebook.com. Some kids are posting more on their profiles than they should (full name, for example), and some comments and photos in profiles can be inappropriate. Also, a few more safety reminders would be a welcome addition for the parents of kids who rip.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why joining a social networking site based on a common interest may be more useful than one of the giant general social networking sites. Also, talk about why safety rules apply online everywhere your child goes, even if you're talking to someone who shares (or claims to share) similar interests.
