My 10 yr old DS asked me if he could get his own Gmail account. My first thought is why not, but I am wondering if there are things that I am not thinking about. Is it a bad idea? Please advise

Email is an easy way to communicate with friends overseas. If you have access to it, why not? Go through it every night. Also go through all sent and deleted emails.
You can also enforce rules regarding sending and receiving pictures or links.

Gmail in particular includes access to Gchat, which includes text, audio, and video chat. Just FYI, not saying that those are problematic, but it's not just an email account. It is probably possible to disable one or more of those if you would prefer that.

With gmail you can have a child's account set up linked to yours and require a parents permission before the kid can log in. My kids do have accounts but they never use them. Interesting that someone said they get spam, I get tons on my yahoo account, none on gmail.

I got my first email when I was 10 (remember AOL dialup lol). My 9 year old has a Gmail that is linked to our accounts, so we have full access. He doesn't really use it. Sometimes he will use the chat feature to text me or dh, that's about it.
