  • Whoever your internet provider is will usually give you 5 or 10 free email accts with your service, and you can use those for basically anyone or anything you want. There's no law regarding what age kids can use email. DS has had one since he was 6 or 7. The only people he talks to on it are family who live out of state.

  • That's just gmail's policy. Use your ISP.

  • My 10 year old has a yahoo email address that my mom set up. We all have his password so that we can check it if need be.
