Tool description

Kindersache.de is an Internet service for children of the German Children’s Fund. The website features current and child-friendly news, the JUKI video portal, an animated film studio and numerous hands-on activities for children.

In a nutshell:

  • Information and participation offer for children between 8 and 13 years of age
  • numerous reviewed and moderated videos especially for children
  • safe first experience space for children in dealing with social networks
  • Possibility of exchange with other children

What is www.kindersache.de?

Here, children will find age-appropriate information and interactive offerings, e.g. They can

  • find out about interesting topics and exchange ideas with others.
  • get tips on safe surfing.
  • participate by writing their own article or comment.
  • get information about their rights.
  • play and participate in raffles.

The topic of children’s rights is given a particularly large amount of space at kindersache.de: It is described in a child-friendly way, what it is at all and which children’s rights there are.

In the “Join in” section, children can become active themselves: Write an article or a story, create a cartoon, upload their own video or tell a joke. More fun is provided by various games and puzzles on the site.

Kindersache.de is particularly suitable for children, as all content is selected and reviewed by media educators. Also the exchange with others is safe, because comments and etc. are checked before publication. In this way, children learn about the opportunities for participation on the Internet in a protected space.

What should parents pay attention to?

As with all services used by children up to the age of 12, you should also find out about kindersache.de and ideally explore the site together with your child. It is important for your child to share their experiences with you. Talking about the content on kindersache.de, such as children’s rights, promotes your child’s autonomy and knowledge. .
