My Dad N’ Me

By Paul O’Reilly

My Dad N’ Me is a new web tool that offers a safe and fun environment for dads to share activities and interact online and offline with their kids. The site targets 5 to 12-year-olds and the creator of My Dad N’ Me, Chicago-based businessman Keith Kriegler, believes it fills a void that’s been left by other popular social media sites for youngsters like Club Penguin, Webkinz and Neopets.

“My Dad N’ Me embraces the social media craze and redefines it for kids,” said Kriegler. “It is a free, innovative online social media platform that transforms and enriches relationships between dads and their children, as well as close family and friends.” He believes that message boards and other online tools can be used to strengthen family ties and that it makes sense for dads to be at the center of this Web-based hub.

Once a parent or guardian signs-in to My Dad N’ Me, they are invited to register their children, other parents or guardians, and invited guests. Other parents or guardians have full access and approval authority for invite requests made by the children, and they can also be granted administrator rights, allowing them to change settings or even remove family accounts.

Acknowledging online child safety guidelines, My Dad N’ Me limits what children can do on the site: They can send messages, post photos, play games and participate in the family challenges, but they can’t change e-mail addresses or any of the site settings. Invited guests are also restricted: They can participate in the challenges, play games and post messages to the Family Message Center. They can also view and comment on pictures but they can’t post pictures themselves.

My Dad N’ Me currently features a very limited range of games – just 5 total right now – although that number is expected to quickly grow. Similarly, the Activities page has the feel of a new site, but has some cute suggestions on cooking together, sharing music, reading, and more.

Without openly acknowledging the fact, My Dad N’ Me appears to have been set up to allow maximum flexibility for families that are separated through divorce or for other reasons. The site is launching in tandem with Dad It Up, an online forum for dads to share ideas, ask questions and seek advice. “A place where a dad can go to find everything from ideas on how to be a better parent to exchanging honest, open feedback on how to handle issues at home, work, step-parenting, visitation rights and more,” says Kriegler.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
