So I am officially the cool mom: I let my kid start his own YouTube channel.
He’s officially a YouTuber. All the neighbor kids are like, “Wow, I can’t believe you are on YouTube, that is so cool!”
I have a feeling that my kids generation will value YouTubers more than movie celebrities. They share more of their everyday lives with the kids, which means they get to know their personalities and the kids genuinely think they care. We don’t really get to know celebrities.
I got him a Photoshop subscription also and he went to town making the channel art for YouTube and Twitter (oh, he set that up too!)
After a few videos, he leveled up and wanted to edit the videos and add sound. He found all the software he needed and just did it. It gives me warm fuzzies just thinking about it.
The moral of the story is to give kids the tools they need and they will amaze you.
