10 Best Blogs For Children

ParentCircle

A blog is an online journal or website on which a writer shares his opinion either on a specific topic or a range of topics. Blog posts are typically informal and are accessible to readers who can comment on the post and start a discussion - with each other and with the writer. 

A blog can function as a diary and offer many of the therapeutic benefits of writing. Studies show that writing about personal experiences improves sleep, enhances memory and boosts immune cell function. Maintaining a blog can have similar effects.

In the digital age, it can be difficult to convince children to maintain a handwritten journal. Also, most popular blogging websites that adults use have a policy which states that children below the age of 13 cannot set up an account. Fortunately, there are several blogs and blogging platforms that have been set up specifically for the use of children.

Accessing these blogs will allow your child to share original content, learn interesting facts about topics of his choice, interact with other children of his age and learn new skills via the Internet. 

Go through the clips below to discover 10 of the most popular and educative blogs for your child.
