Should we try to set up pen pals/e-mail pals for our kids
Would anyone else on this board be into trying to set up something to see if our kids would be interested in e-mail/pen paling anyone else's child.  A lot of our children seem to be be similar in ages - and some interests.

I could even have my husband (not me the luddite) set up a website for them.  Just an idea - my son only has a couple of real friends - I think he would like to do something like this.  They might think it is cool to have a pen pal in another part of the world or another country.  We are not looking at long 18th century letters here.

I don't have any children, so I can't participate, but it sounds interesting. Email addresses can't be posted publicly. They'd have to go through pm. This also takes a degree of trust in each member here.  It may be wise to set up one of those free hotmail or yahoo accounts to do the penpal-ing with. That way you protect your main account.  Adult supervision would be very important.

I am not sure whether or not my son would be able to communicate well through writing or typing but I would give it a chance and help him if he wants.

I know that my son would love to communicate with another Aspie. We were at a wedding a few weeks ago and became very excited because he saw another Aspie across the room. I said, "You can tell he is an Aspie by looking at him?" His reply was a very firm, "Yes". He went over to the young man and came back to me with a very broad smile on his face...the boy was indeed an Aspie and they thoroughly enjoyed communicating with each other.
