All 3 of my kids have email addresses. My oldest is 8 and my youngest is 11 months. Now the younger 2 don't use theirs for anything I use them to sign them up for things that need a different email address for each person. I have let my son use his for signing up for games online but I check out the games before he can use it.

Both of my kids 7 and 8 have their own email address! We did a lot of research before we just gave them one. We gave them both an FREE account from zilliadog.com
Email for Kids
* Parents have their own password to set up the "buddy list" in the address book (yes, you get to pick their friends).
* Parents can be copied on all outgoing messages.
* Kids can only receive email from their approved “buddy list”, so there is no spam.
We love it! I don't have to do anything. Everything shows up in my email inbox. I get automatic blind carbon copies of everything. I always get blind carbon copies of outgoing mail, but sometimes I do get blind carbon copies of the incoming mail. We also use Littleye to restrict their internet access.
