How to Build an Age Appropriate Kid-Friendly Website Infographic
Adults today may remember growing up with the development of the internet and learning to use it as a teenager or adult, but today’s children are growing up using the internet from a much earlier age than you might expect. By age five, more than half of all children with access to the Internet will use it regularly. If your product or service is aimed at children it's important that you create a website that children want to interact with.

You’ll be able to more easily attract your target audience, and your website will be more popular with kids from the start.
