Live sex chat sending and receiving messages
Steps were taken to prohibit the scamming that players were able to perform on each other, several of my suggestions were incorporated fully into the game.Under the National Geographic brand, you will assume this is a "safe" game, with parental controls, but that is not the issue. My daughter's account was hacked into by another player who lied to my daughter (she thought he was a moderator) and all her things were "stolen." Animal Jam had the nerve to send an automated response to my email complaints. My child has been crushed by the vicious manouvers of other mean kids. The past week, however, we noticed that she was being exposed to a great deal of foul language and sexual activity on this kid-friendly site.The problem is with addiction, and that the educational aspects of this are virtually nil, considering it is optional for the children to click on the educational facts, otherwise the main thing they will learn is materialism, as they strive to acquire possessions for their avatar. I left two messages on their phone line (which is never staffed apparently) and never got a call back. How can that be when the site has chat filters and constant moderation?We've had to have several conversations about sex that I wasn't prepared for at the age of 10.I think good has come out of this as it's opened a discussion that is important to have with your kids but I resent that it wasn't on my terms and that it's happening so soon.This is a den where tables with torches or lamp posts have been set up and animals dance on the table. As for sex, your child may be invited to a private den party.
Other things they will learn are: lying, cheating, and stealing, as experienced players take advantage of new players by lopsided trades, and new players give away their passwords and thus control of their possessions to strangers. Well, first off, the players have various short hand for swear words.
For example, your child might be invited to a "stripped club" aka strip club.
This is a highly addictive multiplayer online role playing game. The games are fun and both my 8 and 11 year olds love it.everywhere you go there are new places and it is always being updated. Believe me, this trait is not rewarded on the animal jam web site.
All parents should be warned before bringing this into their lives that their children will prefer this game over eating, sleeping, exercise, and outings, and you will find yourself saying "no Animal Jam" multiple times daily. I truly think its a good game (I even have my own account that I go on sometimes! If you have sweet, considerate, trusting children who want to go on this site and see animals... They will be exposed to rude, selfish, manipulating children who steal, coerce, lie and use your child to take advantage of, and steal the items they may have. My daughter has been playing animal jam for over a year and we were happy to find a game that seemed safe and where she could indulged her fascination and love of animals.
Unfortunately, there's always bad apples that will spoil the bunch. In it I stated some problems with the site, how kids were preying upon each other.I wrote to the developers and complained, and they responded wonderfully.
