What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site is a safe place for teen girls to hang out online -- and actually learn something. A sister site to GoGirlsOnly, the Girl Scouts' site for the 5 to 12 set, this is a much more sophisticated site, full of engaging articles, projects, and scholarship opportunities -- all written in a teen-friendly tone (by teens, in many cases).

What's it about?

Studio 2B: A Place for Teens is the destination for girls who are Girl Scout Guides (the stage after being a scout), former scouts, or who simply want to spend time online learning something. Site features include well-written articles about nutrition and fitness, a play-by-play of a car accident (and how to avoid one), along with an interesting story about girls becoming auto mechanics. Writer's Block: A Space for Poems and Stories features the writings of members (mostly about being confident). There are also plenty of ideas about saving the environment and helping those in need.

Is it any good?

For parents eager to steer their daughters away from all the teen-oriented fluff on the Web, this refreshing site is just the ticket. With its user-friendly layout and intelligent voice, the site gets the thumbs-up for both quality and quantity as there's enough content on the site that it practically begs for multiple visits.

One of the best areas of the site shows girls how to get their friends (or even their classroom) involved in a CSI-type crime investigation, which ends up teaching more about DNA than any 3-D model of the double helix ever could. Bottom line: This site is fun and smart enough that you just might find yourself saying "You go, girl!"

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about some of the different issues covered on the site and what teens can gain from learning about important things such as self-esteem. Is it refreshing to visit a site that doesn't only cover boys and clothes? How can you create a balance in your life for those things and other heavier topics such as health issues and protecting the environment? Families can also discuss the Girl Scout Challenge -- a character-building exercise that promotes honesty, courage, and respect for diversity.
