Kids love to watch YouTube videos! There is so much to learn from the various popular personalities. Dude Perfect, Studio C, Slow Mo Guys, PESFilms are just a few of those channels that have great content and are appropriate for General Audiences. Recently, there were controversies around popular YouTubers Logan Paul and Lil Tay who are posting inappropriate content for any age. When advertising dollars are dependent on viewership, it can sometimes incentivize high profile personalities to go for the shock and awe.
It’s important as educators and parents that we keep our finger on the pulse. When we hear muffled giggles at F2W, we are quick to investigate. Sometimes we discover some great video being viewed that we can share. Other times we use this teachable moment to encourage kids to change the channel and allow the conversation to deepen. Who are your favorite YouTubers?
