When you sign up your child to become an Idea Seeker™, they’ll receive an expanded KidsCom.com experience! They’ll get their own spot on the Internet with an Idea Seeker Home Page, developed with kids’ safety in mind. They can create their own Character and decorate their own House. They’ll be able to collect even more Plant Babies – online helpers that teach personal responsibility and help develop positive character traits. They’ll learn financial concepts, set up an Idea Seeker Store, and explore an online universe with learning challenges that support them in reading, writing, math, science, and social skill development.
2. What’s in it for parents, grandparents and teachers?
You can be sure that your kids are spending quality time on the Internet having fun while learning. Their interactions with other kids are in your control – we are set up with your child’s safety in mind.
You get to be the hero! You can reward kids by giving them Virtual Points through the KidsCom.com Root ‘n Reward program for adults, which comes with every Idea Seeker™ membership. Kids use these points to play awesome online games and engage in learning activities on KidsCom.com.
You can use the program to automatically give out your 8,000 Virtual Points every month, or you can choose to give them out yourself. Give out points when your child helps you out around the house, or gets a high score on a test. You decide! Your kids will love getting Virtual Points, and you’ll be sure to get a “Thank You” in return. Your kids will have loads of fun in a safe and kid-friendly environment while learning fundamental qualities that will impact them for a lifetime.
