Usability of Websites for Teenagers (31 Jan 2005)
Some websites in our study tried to serve both children and teens in a single area, usually titled something like Kids. This is a grave mistake; the word "kid" is a teen repellent.

We recommend having separate sections for young children and teens, labeling them Kids and Teens, respectively.
