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).
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!"
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.
