I want to start an internet forum for kids - what are the applicable laws?

When I join forums, sometimes I see a disclaimer asking if I'm over 13. This makes me think that their must be some law about this.
What is that law? Does anyone know what it is called, or where I can find the text? Or any advice for people wanting to start such a forum?
I also understand that kids under 13 must have parents permission. In what form must that permission come? Can they just check a radio box that says "I have my parent's permission"? (assuming they do.)
