Fun Sites for Kids

Children's Health Pediatric Resources Fun Sites for Kids HP Palmtops Dr. Reddy's Home Page Feedback Our Real Office

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 general questions about children's health, but unless your child is a regular patient of mine I cannot give you specific advice.
