No. They are too immature.

ONLY if there is a kids topic.

Yes, but reviewed first.

What are kids doing on here?

Go read a book!

This is really a hard one to judge. Where do you draw the line at immaturity, 18 or 80. I've been a moderator for an internet chat room, open to all from everywhere in the world, and trust me, I've met a lot of under 18 year olds that were more mature than many of the adults. I DON'T feel that they should be allowed to just post arbitrarily through. Unfortunately, postings or chats, anything for that matter, over the internet is impossible to verify age. The best that can be done at this point is to read the post, and if out of line, report it. Younger people learn from what they see and hear, and who could be better teachers than responsible posters.

Gilbert Girl needs some place to tell the world how smart and responsible and goody two shoes she is. She got a few people to pat her on the head for being so responsible but any parrot worth its salt can repeat cliches and phrases that it thinks people want to hear.

If you ever needed an example of why they shouldn't be on here, just go to the thread about "Prison, Morgue Tours For At Risk Youth" and read the majority of the second page. That kid is such a shameless suck-up it is absolutely hilarious! Either she didn't get enough attention from mommy and daddy or she got entirely too much.

I know. But let her rant. If it raises her self-esteem enough to keep her happy, what the heck. I guess it beats some of the racists they have on here, right? I guess she means well, even if she does go on and on like a machine.

Yeah, I guess you are right at that, Lori. Just that Goody Two Shoes mentality / personality grates like fingernails on a chalkboard same as it was in high school. Even at that, you are right about it being better than the racists. LOL

It's like 2 round pieces of a cookie style crust (softer though) with ice cream in the middle. I was so addicted to those but they are so damm good!!.
