Big Kid

What Age Should a Child Have a YouTube Channel

By  | 

It seems like nowadays, all the big stars on YouTube are kids! School-age kids, tweens, teens, even toddlers are getting in on the action! If your kids watch other kids on YouTube, there’s a good chance they want to start their own channel. But as parents, we obviously have some concerns! What age should a child have a YouTube channel? And what steps can we take to make sure they’re safe on the platform?

YouTube’s terms and conditions stipulate that users must be at least 13 years old to create a channel, or even use the platform. So what age should a child have a YouTube channel?

Even though users are supposed to be at least 13, it’s clear from just a quick search that plenty of kids have their own channels. Only you as their parent will be able to determine if your child is ready and mature enough to have their own channel, especially if you won’t be running it. If your child has asked to start their own child, do a little digging. Why do they want their own channel? What kind of content so they plan on posting? What do they hope to get out of it? Their answers to those questions will offer a lot of insight into their motivations.

Personally, we would urge you to wait until your child meets the age requirement for YouTube before allowing them to start their own channel. That being said, some kids will definitely be ready before they’re 13! If your younger child has demonstrated that they’re ready and you feel comfortable, you can set up a channel on your own account that they can start with. This will mean that you’ll have to do all the uploading, but your kid will still have creative control. It also means that you’ll have total oversight, and can adjust settings to make it as safe as possible.

There are a few more steps you can take to make your child’s channel safe.

First off, make the videos private. They won’t be included in the YouTube aggregate feed and can’t be found in the search function. Regularly review any new followers, as well. Additionally, turn off commenting on the videos. In general, the type of feedback they’ll get in YouTube comments is not at all constructive or helpful.

Preview all content before it gets uploaded, and if there’s something that concerns you, talk it over with your child. Make sure they understand what is and is not acceptable in terms of what they can put on their channel. And make it a point to review all the videos in a regular basis.

Having a YouTube channel can be a great creative outlet for kids. But what age should a child have a YouTube channel? That will really depend on the child! It can certainly be a fun and engaging activity for you to do together.

    What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!


    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!

    El octavo paro general de la democracia es el más justificado de todos”, según los convocantes UGT y CC OO , que han calentado la protesta con un acto multitudinario en la Puerta del Sol. El día siguiente al paro general en España, Rajoy aprobará en consejo de ministros un proyecto de presupuestos del Estado que será el más austero de la democracia”, según ha anunciado. En los centros de trabajo más sensibles en jornadas de este tipo, como el transporte público, las administraciones públicas y los sindicatos han pactado servicios mínimos que, al menos, garantizarán una cierta paz durante la jornada, a diferencia de lo que ocurrió en septiembre de 2010.
