Messenger Kids tool for kid communications

Techstination feature for Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Ericka Souter is a contributing editor at…and as you may have guessed…is also a mom.    And she is offering some tips for parents and kids about safely staying connected.    Facebook’s Messenger Kids is a tool that allows kids to communicate….while giving parents some control…

“The one amazing thing about Messenger Kids, and my own children use it, is that it really is tightly parent controlled.   There’s a parent dashboard that enables me to accept or reject, add or remove, anyone that they’re interacting with.   I also see all the communication…what my kids send out and then what they get back.”

And for parents…come a little closer to the radio…you can also set time limits.  Find more at
