Looking for a PenPal!

Ok. So, Tay asked the other day if I knew of anybody who had a kiddo her age who wants a penpal. She wants a penpal. She's 10. Into hockey. Loves playing her DS and listening to music.

I'll only take "auditions" from folks here who I already know, for safety reasons. But, if any of you have a kiddo at the same general age who'd like a penpal like Tay, please let me know. She's been nagging and nagging. And these days it's not too easy to find a good, ol' fashioned penpal for one's kiddo. Of course, seeing as it's generally like pulling teeth to get her to write anything, I'm going to have to limit it to one, if I get more than one person who responds with a "yeah, my kiddo would like to". SO I'll probably just put the 2 or 3 names (at most, I'd guess) in a cup and pick one. So nobody feels hurt if Tay ends up writing to one person's child and not another.

*sigh* Really wish it wasn't so hard for the brat to find her own penpal, but as I said, these days it's not so easily done. It's not a safe proposition, to put one's personal info out there and share, back & forth with a stanger, the intricacies of one's life.

Thanks in advance!

I wish I could help you on this but I've got nothing. I wish Tay luck in finding a penpal though.

My kids are all too old to accept your offer, but thanks anyway. I bet you do get several offers. And pulling from among your blogging community may be one of the safest ways to find a penpal. This was a very good idea.

Thanks for taking part in answering my question.
I once posted some thing ages ago and I end up with bunch of links to porno sights. Then I put in spam code thinging ding bob.

I never had pen pal or kept journal of any type. But I can see these thing go in way of the dinosaur and being part of computer network.
As we all know we here of awful things happening to children.
But I think it important to teach our children common sense as like when I was young first days of school we all had someone told not to get in stranger car.

My youngest granddaughter might like to be a pen-pal. She's 9 and will be 10 in September. If you think Tay is interested, I'll give you Joy's address and you two can discuss it.
