My kids and I really miss Mythos! :( It was a great game and was going to be free to play.

Right now we have been playing castle crashers together. Beyond that I am a little nervous about getting them too involved with mmo's.

I would never let my kid play an MMO...she's addicted enough to the Ninetndo DS.

I'm also looking forward to Free Realms. I was in the Wizard101 Beta and played it a little bit with my son. It was nice to play something with him that felt "safe" but was still actually fun to play. Free Realms looks to be much the same way, and I was really impressed by that video preview that was posted a while back.

I understand the concerns about getting a kid addicted to an MMO. My kids get limited, supervised play time, so it's not really a problem for us.

My daughter is playing GONG! (which apparently stands for goal or no goal). It's an online soccer game that you can find at www.gongonline.com.

While not really an mmo, she does play with other players from around the globe and likes it quite a bit.

As far as the addiction thing goes... I guess it's different b/c this game is more casual and doesn't require the grind sessions that the games I play require (EQ2, AOC, etc...).

Not sure if i'd let her play those types of games just yet. And if I did, there would definitely be a time restriction.
