    Is There (or could there be) one of the RHP aliases that does not have the forum link option on the links bar for younger players?
    Also, for any option of chatting or conversing to be removed, so it is strictly chess.
    And finally, could the terms and conditions for that site allow under 13’s.

    Perhaps all games being unrated until they are old enough to move over to RHP.
    (It would be favourable if all the players could do was play, even removing the option of naming games on the “open invites” page, because you just know one of the little devils is going to put a rude word in there).

    Thanks for listening (reading).

    You should look into a chess by email news group. You could filter the emails for a young child and hand the moves over, and mail the moves out for the child once a move is picked. That way if anyone was sending strange messages the child wouldn't see them.

    I don't see RHP doing anything like you asked. Perhaps you should try looking around for something like "kid safe chess". There must be something like this set up already someplace, rather than RHP trying to do something it's not set up to do.

    P-

    Here is a chess program online that doesn't talk back.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Its a pity the family of sites here, do not cater for the younger players.
    They do a good job here and I am sure this would be reflected in other sites.

    academic chess is a site that is kid friendly and the adult side is very
    well controlled for stupid and ugly gross posting ( a rarity on the net )..also there is a site called chesshounds which is very kid friendly.
    both are free.. academic chess has free chess instruction for children too.
