IMVU is not for kids
IMVU isn’t for kids. I say this as a mother and a former kid. As much as we don’t want to admit it when we’re young there is a time and place for things and this isn’t the place for kids. There are so many ways kids can chat and talk to their real friends this is just the wrong place for them. I don’t like to talk to people who say they’re 18. (people under 18 usually say they’re 18, not into their 20s)
They really need to be like 21 or more to even start to feel comfortable. And even then you’ll often get more drama. So my advice is to err on the side of caution. I probably don’t need to say that to most of the readers here but just in case, please for your own good as well as theirs this is one rule you really shouldn’t ever break for any reason. I can do a lot of fun things on here but this is a serious no no and bad for everyone.
The image above and the chat below (or on the post page if you’re looking at this on the home page) is an actual conversation I had today where someone said she was 14. When this happens just urge them as politely and sincerely not to do this. I don’t know that there’s really anything more we can do except to each do the right thing. This site is also for adults only but I still try to keep it Rated R, and use passwords if something is too strong. If you think I’ve shown too much in some area please let me know and I’ll try to do better. We can all have fun and enjoy this but have an obligation to at least try to minimize the corruption.

Kaitlyn: but I don’t think I have to tell you that.
Reburned: It’s okay, I’ve asked my parents if i can play this stuff.
Kaitlyn: there are some things that are unfortunately wrong in life whether you want to admit that or not.
Kaitlyn: and unfortunately this place rewards bad behavior
Kaitlyn: and will give you the wrong attitude if you spend too much time here before you’ve had a chance to find your own feet.
Kaitlyn: Your parents are wrong.
Kaitlyn: if they said you could or they just dont know.
Kaitlyn: you really should reconsider
Kaitlyn: but don’t worry
Kaitlyn: you have a lot of time left
Kaitlyn: and when you are older this will be even better.
Kaitlyn: there’s no rush.
Kaitlyn: enjoy your real friends and your real life
