    This is my 7 year old daughters latest video on youtube -

    Its nothing special really but to me its amazing. I love how she started this channel on her own and she is so hyped up about it. I think she is probably going to be much better at IM than I have been :)

    If you guys have any tips for her would be great because I don't really do any youtube stuff.

    Her videos only get a handful of views and don't normally get any likes, I guess because the subject matter is a bit random. But this is what she wrote for her last video description -

    Who care's about the description! Turn on notifications subscribe and drop a like I would really appreciate it +I need pocket money!

    Haha, "drop a like" :)

    For her own sake (and her self-reflection in future) I would not allow her to record anything on youtube if I was on your position. She will regret it, especially if she forgets the password from the channel and will not be able to delete the vids later.

    She could make a nice little mini series about this. All depends on her imagination. Good on her.

    @Drowen9 why would she regret it? I'm sure @davids355 will help out by ensuring the passwords are stored safely and the content remains age appropriate.

    Why? Once she gets older she will feel ashamed for having such videos that anyone can see, but fortunately for her, it's a normal video, not like those 10y.o kiddos doing "challenges" or singing "cringe" songs.

    Don't see any reason for her to feel ashamed about this, like I said, so long as it's age appropriate then there's no problem.

    That's just my opinion tho, but as I said, at least it's a normal content.

    Don't be such a miserable prick. As a dad of 2 little girls myself I would be slightly concerned about unwanted attention but certainly not for any kind of possible future embarrassment.

    Videos like this are great when you grow up as they give you something to look back on and reminisce.

    Tell her to keep up the good work

    Cheers for the support guys, much appreciated.

    Thanks very much, will check them out in a minute.

    I know what you are saying. She may regret some stuff in the future, I dont know. But Im trying to leave her to be creative within reason - I had no involvement in this venture she just started it herself. I am happy with what she is posting though, I wouldnt let her post anything inappropriate.

    And if she forgets her password and loses access to her registration email then well, its her own fault :)

    Haha, yea she is always going on about imovie. I am saving up for a mac for her as well because its all done from ipod at the moment.

    Yea, she is pretty good on the computer. I like that she is involved in tech from a young age as well. I think I didnt really start with computers until I was about 11-12 or something so I think she has a nice head start on what I had.

    Thanks :)

    Exactly.

    Uh-oh, I think she has a few of those cringe songs on the channel as well :) She has already had someone tell her that her singing sucks but she is not too worried about it. She is quite confident in her own way.

    Yea good point, that was crazy that stunt. I dont think she would do something like that :)

    Exactly.

    Yea, the more material to embarrass her the better :)

    Thanks :)

    Yea, I do check all the videos before she uploads them to make sure there isnt anything that shouldnt be online. And yes sure, putting anything on the internet is potentially exposing them to not so nice people but I am just trying to have the balance right - I want to let her be creative etc. And I want to allow her to make use of the technology that is available now because I think its such a great opportunity for kids these days - think how clever and technically adept most kids will be in this coming generation - I think its the perfect time as well because tech industry is so big and I think when this age group grows up tech innovation is going to go off the scale.

    Most definitely, you can see for yourself its not one of those overly polished made for youtube vids. She 100% set up the channel herself and just posts what she wants. I dont get involved at all apart from to ok it when it goes online.
    In fact I tried a few times to encourage her to do some more structured stuff - create a website and so on - but she isnt interested, she just wants to do her own thing :)

    Thanks much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. Exactly.

    Hahaha, exactly! Totally random ay :)
