Fun Sites for Kids
Most of these sites encourage kids to visit with their parents in tow.
Many, if not most, have sections that give parents and teachers an overview
of the site. As with any Web site, you (the parents)
should take a look at each site with, or even before, your kids.
If you have suggestions for sites that we should add to this list, please let us
know through the feedback
channel. Also, please let us know if you find a site listed here
that is not appropriate for children. (We have checked these sites out as best
as we can, but we can't guarantee that something might change after we look at it.)

We welcome your
comments and questions.
PLEASE NOTE: As with all of this Web site, I try to give
general answers to common questions my patients and their parents ask me
in my (real) office. If you have specific questions about your
child you must ask your child's regular doctor. No doctor can give
completely accurate advice about a particular child without knowing and
examining that child. I will be happy to try and answer
about children's health, but unless your child is a regular patient of
mine I cannot give you specific advice.
