QuestionHow old should a child be before getting an email account?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou should be able to judge for yourself your child's maturity level when considering allowing them access to an email account. If you're unable to, then perhaps its time to sit down and have a chat with your child about life in general, including topics such as internet safety, anonymity, curse words, sexuality, violence and gore, and addictions.Thanks!
QuestionAt what age can I make a Google account?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIn most countries, you must be at least 13 years old to make a Google account. The age limit goes up to 14 for Spain and South Korea, and 16 for the Netherlands.Thanks!
