Like all poets I like to write about every aspect of my life.  The kids in my family have played a very important part of it.  Recently in response to the mathematical competition I contributed a poem story from an old poem scrap book that I wrote for my nieces.  
My family has been reminiscing over that old scrap book since and how it was such an influence on them.
So, my suggestion is this.  Why not have a poem category just for.kids?

There would have to be a way to PROTECT the Kids.

Similar to when i sometimes teach Kids chess online.  I will use a site where i can set up a room and only me and whoever has the Password to enter the room will be there.
I then email the Password to the Parents.
Safety 1st especially when it's online.

So if a safe room can be created
then Yeah, a good idea.

Way I  interpreted  his post was he'd like a category for childrens poems written by members. I see no  safety issues with that once the poetry is in good taste

decent idea

I really appreciate you being so cautious about children online, Tallen.  Predatory behaviour, particularly toward juveniles has cost more than one life.

This is what i mean when i tell people i often interpret what people say much differently than what the majority of others see.

Appreciate the other interpretation, though.

Are you referring to nursery rhymes? Maybe that term would clear the confusion if that's the kind of poems you're thinking.
Merry Christmas!

could be right, 'nursery rhymes are fairly fixed rate though. for one thing they have to rhyme n such.  that said, wouldn't be a bad idea to have a nursery ryhme section anyway
