Is it possible to make it so that if a user is under 13, they must enter their parents eMail and their parents must click a link to activate their account?

How are you going to know if the email addy is a parents or just another one of their own?

We won't. But a fake one would result in an immdate ban.

Simple:
No one under 13 is allowed.
If they are under 13, then they have their parents birthday and email.
As most of them members here on members on other sites I go, we can usually tell.

We dont have a huge issue with people lying about their age. With our near 300 members, we only had like..2 or 3 that lied.

I think we're straying away from the OP's question.

You would need a modification to implement a new set of email fields.

It doesn't matter if they lie - as long as you had reasonable steps for a parent to confirm, you are protected. At least that's how I see/remember it. (IANAL) The easiest way would be to just deny anyone under 13 to register. Unless you are a forum discussing a topic that children like (i.e. cartoons or something), I don't see a big issue with just denying under 13s.

My forums are about Webkinz, and I am under 13, so I need it to be protected.
