Subject: Save our Kids!


        The .kids domain should only be granted if it is restricted.  We should consider for whom this domain name is being created.  Is it for the content providers and the other organizations trying to reach our children, or is it for our kids themselves?  The reason that a .kids domain should exist is to provide our kids with a safe environment in which to discover the Internet on their own.  Since it is difficult for parents to continually monitor what sites our children visit on the Internet, restriction gives them freedom within set boundaries.  Not restricting the domain is akin to letting children who don't know how to swim play around the pool without adult supervision. Do we want to let our children drown in a sea of undesirable and polluted sites because we forgot to put a latch on the pool gate?  .kids domain is the latch that we need.
