Something is Terribly Wrong With Many “Kids” Videos on YouTube

303

A great number of YouTube videos aimed at children contain creepy, disturbing, violent and sexual content. Some even border on child abuse. It is time to take a closer look at these videos that generate millions of views per day.

Warning: This article contains disturbing images … although they’re all taken from children’s videos.

There is no easier way to get small children to pipe down than handing them a tablet or a smartphone. Toddlers know how to launch YouTube, play videos and even navigate to other “recommended videos”. This keeps children silent and entertained for long periods of time – a luxury that busy parents greatly appreciate.

While most parents hear the children’s music playing in the background, they rarely watch the videos played by their children. When they do glimpse at the screen, they see a  character such as Spiderman or Princess Elsa and assume that everything is cool. But everything is not cool. There is something terribly wrong with some children’s YouTube videos and, often, those who create them do not have the best of intentions.

A great deal of these videos contains weird, disturbing, violent and even traumatizing content. They are insidiously mixed with other children’s videos, causing them to appear as “recommended videos” by YouTube and, therefore, easily accessible to children.

I am not talking about rare, obscure videos hiding in the depths of YouTube, I am talking about channels that cumulate billions of views.

Of course, the main motivation behind these videos is profit. All it takes is a few superhero costumes and a smartphone to create videos that can potentially generate lots of revenue.

However, some of these videos are simply not right. There appears to be a motivation that goes beyond profit. Some videos trick children into watching traumatizing content, others expose them to oddly “adult” situations. Even worse, some appear to cater to adults … who like to watch children. Here are some examples of the video cancer growing on YouTube (I won’t be linking to any of these videos or channels because I don’t want to help them get more hits).

Tricking Children

Some video channels use popular characters to trick children into watching violent and disturbing material. The BBC recently reported on some of these videos.

Mickey Mouse gets his ear cut off with scissors. Lots of blood.
An evil little Spiderman cuts the top off a girl’s bikini.
In another disturbing video, Peppa Pig turns into Venom and looks quite demonic.

Exploiting Fears and Terror

Many videos clearly exploit children’s visceral fear and repulsion of certain things such as blood, syringes, cutting skin, tarantulas, evil clowns attacking them, etc. Children are horrified by what they are watching yet they cannot look away because the content is engrossing.

A great number of videos revolve around the theme of cutting open the stomach and extracting all kinds of weird and horrible things. In this video, a scalpel cuts open this bear’s stomach and a big ugly worm pops out.
In this video, a “nurse” cuts open a small girl’s stomach and takes out all kinds of scary objects such as a huge kitchen knife.
Here, someone dressed as the Joker threatens to throw a baby down the toilet. A great way to start potty training.
In this video, creepy fake babies end up covered with spiders and cockroaches.
A giant tarantula crawling on a girl sleeping with a pacifier.
In this video, a bear poops all over his entire family. He then ends up stuck in the washing machine as family members drop their dirty clothes inside of it. All the while, a horrible rendition of the “Daddy Finger” song plays in the background. So many videos feature that song – as if something about it captures children’s attention.

Adult Situations

Some videos are clearly sexual – in a creepy and perverted way.

This video strongly hints at Spiderman doing it with Elsa.
Here, Spiderman grabs Elsa’s breasts for a very long time. Hulk and a bunch of other dudes are watching in the background.
This entire video features Elsa and Spiderman in all kinds of … positions.

YouTube is also quick to recommend a bunch of other similar videos.

Each video has millions of views.

Child Abuse

Several YouTube channels star young children in all kinds of bizarre situations. Other than the fact that these children might be forced to appear in hundreds of videos for profit, they are also often made to enact traumatic situations. Here are screenshots from a channel named MaddaKenz Vlogs where the girls often appear to be genuinely unhappy and distressed.

Many videos feature the girls screaming or crying their heart out. In this video, this girl has something in her mouth that tastes horrible … And she’s forced to keep it in her mouth … And she doesn’t seem to be acting. Later in the video, they are eating snow with dog pee on it. Hopefully, it is fake pee. But still.
Here, a girl takes something from the toilet and force feeds it to the other girl. She doesn’t like this.
In another video, a creepy dude with clown makeup barges into the girls’ house and starts grabbing them while the girls scream and attempt to resist him.

Things get even weirder – to the point that I feel uncomfortable even posting screenshots on there. But this filth needs to be exposed.

The two girls are sitting in a bathtub dressed as mermaids. Who would actually sit there and watch that? You know who.
The girls are then given lipstick and they begin smearing their faces with it. There are actual adult videos that feature this type of stuff.

Catering to Pervs

Unfortunately, there are other channels that produce these kinds of videos.

There are tons of bizarre videos of children in bathing suits getting a shot in the butt. WHY?!?!?
A girl in a high-cut outfit appears to be bleeding + there are bugs around her. EVERYTHING about that video is wrong.
“Recommended videos” leads to a bunch of disturbing thumbnails and so much more content.

In Conclusion

Viewing these videos in order to write this article was a disturbing experience. Most of them trigger that gut feeling that something is wrong and that children’s innocence is being preyed on by twisted minds. Although there’s an absurd amount of this type of content on YouTube (this article could have been 10 times longer), I attempted to expose the various reasons why these videos are cancerous. Using underhanded and manipulative ways, these videos deliver disturbing content directly into the brains of very young children.

One wonders how these “amateur” channels can even exploit the likeness of these children’s characters without being hit with copyright infringement lawsuits. Also, many channels are clearly sponsored by major brands to produce videos that brainwash children into consuming their stuff (I recall watching a video where The Hulk eats Kinder chocolates for like 4 minutes non-stop). Obviously, there is big money and big corporations behind these cheap-looking videos.

However, the true aim of this article is not about YouTube moderation, it is about vigilance: Keep an eye on the videos watched by children. Analyze their contents. It only takes a few taps on a touchscreen for children to end up watching videos custom-made to poison their minds and shock their very core. And don’t be surprised if some of these video channels are linked to actual child abuse systems.

All of those things, the bugs, eating poop, cutting and bleeding, playing “doctor,” are used in satanic ritual abuse. Kerth Barker’s books on the subject are heartbreakingly in alignment with this stuff. It’s a level of evil that good people have a difficult time believing because it’s so far removed from human decency, it’s unfathomable. And rightly so. Just take heart that vengeance is God’s, and these things won’t go unpunished.

Aww come on, don’t drag Satan into this. I doubt he’d touch this crap with a ten foot pole.

Wake up matt this is the work of his coons, they after our kids

I assume you’re being sarcastic.

Lmfao….funny but true

Indeed, its not my style. I prefer to corrupt the masses by my false religion called Christianity. Haven’t you ever wondered why you worship an effigy of a man being tortured?
Yours lovingly, Satan.

We don’t worship the effigy, we worship the entity. You should know that, Satan. I can’t imagine you’d have devoted so much effort, with such deep longing, just to enclose yourself in plaster and ride a couple of wooden beams for all eternity.

Yet its not christians who abuse children, but satanists. How are you feeling, way W A Y down below, Satan? Is it warm enough for you? You used to be an arch angel and so soo beautiful, and now you’re disguistingly ugly. You’re soul is showing on your outside, boy did you pick the wrong one to mess with!

This isnt funny, guys. It’s extremely serious, this war between good and evil and should NEVER be taken lightly!

I suppose the many who have claimed abuse in the hands of priest and clergy are lying?

@???. Maybe Vixy doesn’t consider catholics to be Christians. I know I don’t.

Uh…..shall I direct you to the MANY cases of child sexual abuse and sex trafficking involving ministers, priests, youth counselors at churches, boy are you naive. Wolves love to hide behind innocent looking masks.

It’s true yes there are. But that is not of God, it’s people using the position they’re in in a very wrong way, then to still proclaim God. All that does is cause pain and confusion. God is not the author of confusion. People turn away from religion, more importantly, away from God, because of these issues.

God states in the Bible that he created good and he created evil….both.

Evil…..not evil people. Look it up.
(Producing or threatening sorrow, distress, injury, or calamity; ) like a evil disease….pestilence!
Lets us words in the right way. The dictionary have many uses….I love reading it. You should too.

Satan is the father of these things… and you want to leave him out of it???? Smh

I would never name them but i know a few men who grew up at St Cashels Ophanage who have, under oath, given great detail of their sexual abuse at the hands of the Jusuit Christian Brotherhood. Two, I knew chose to end their lives, after they testified as adults in the hearing into what happened and how it could. So, Christians are not exempt.

Jesuit isn’t Christian. Lol! What are they teaching out there? Jesuit is a mob of bullies that are evil….willing to harm innocent people. And not care!

Beelzebub=Lord of the flies…of the dunghill– Yes everything you say stinks and is dead wrong! The Cross of Christ to those blinded spiritually is foolish and to the Jews a stumbling block. But for those who believe it is the power of God unto salvation!

The Lord of the Flies is one of the crown princes of Hell dude xD Demonology is actually a very interesting field.
That said, there are evil people everywhere. Regardless of who enacts judgement, be it God or cosmic karma, they will all get theirs.

You ever think maybe them demons are aliens /shrug they say some were “gods” who really knows with all the BS being shoved down our throats every day

Watch som videos on youtube of people wh have died and gone to hell and see what they say about Satan. He even beats his own demons because he’s not satisfied with them not luring enough people into hell. This is a desperate time for him and there is nothing he wouldnt do- except worship God. It is a raging WAR between good and evil to a length we’re not made to understand.

Link Please !

Yeh, poor f**king satan eh Matt? He takes so much flak.

You doubt he would touch this stuff? Satan?! How stupid are you?!

Satan’s not real.

So you know him personally?

Wow I guess nobody here understands sarcasm. Matt’s comment wasn’t Defending this bs, the opposite in fact. Oh well My take is if ur kid(s) see any of this/other garbage online; its The Parents fault. I’m not defending it either, but just going on about SRA/Satan/ect is pointless imo. Its irrelevant who puts out the content..&I mean If u realy think reporting the vids will help, go for It. But don’t you think many have before & nothing’s happened? Idk Maybe you’ll get something pulled, (&good..) but my point is what was said at the start of this article: “Busy parents putting tablets/phones/ect in front of their kids to entertain them..” “..not realy paying close attention to the content..” That’s the probem. Parents who do this; its their fault 100%. The internet (YouTube/ect..) will Not Stop putting out & allowing people to upload all kinds of thing; not just “disturbing”… Read more »

You tried being a single parent when the other one’s decided its too much hard work and gone home. You have a predatory approach where you blame the victim for your stalking. You cant guard every street corner against drug sellers if thats whaten have decided is cool to do to little girls. And it is largely little girls being abused in these videos.

“Just take heart that vengeance is God’s, and these things won’t go unpunished” Keep telling yourself that. Let us know how that works out for you.

Here’s the thing. The elite who are manipulating children are also destroying the environment, destroying the poor, and madly pouring resources into weapons and space exploration.
The kids may be distractable, but there is NO WAY they can be “mind-controlled” into the destruction of earth. Whether or not it’s God, or the collective conscious, this collusion between the many and powerful few will come to a head in our children’s lifetime.

Alyssa Faison you will meet God one day.

F*****g A

The s**t in this article is bone chiliing and yet there are smartasses that can only use the comment section to take cheap shots at other people religion. Yeah Christians are so naive and backwards, how could they believe in teh sky fairiez, good job, such a scathing critique, no problem at all with the borderline p**o content at all I guess.

don\'tdrinkthekoolaid

Please report all of those channels to the authorities!

Why? Why wouldn’t you report these messed up things; they’re against every human moral.

Because those committing these atrocities ARE the authorities.

I reported the maddakenz video about an hour ago.

Why? Guess who the authorities are?

Like Youtube will do sh*t. They already control content creators. If you post videos that don’t match their agenda, they will make it so that you cannot make money off your videos. No matter what the video is, or even if only you can see it. It’s borderline censorship

everything about them reminded me of the film, Salo, or the 120 days of Sodom. Teens are exploited, tortured, raped and forced to eat s**t. It’s obviously based on satanic ritual and sin (Sodom and Gomorrah) but the way these videos resonate with it is quite frightening.

Ffs that satanic ritual abuse s**t was a hoax, and the “abused kids” have even said as much. It was a cash grab for a bit of fame and to sell books.

you are one dumb motherf*cker zets… go ahead and believe whatever that tv tells you too. Jack*ss

Fantastic article VC! I personally don’t have any children but I’m disgusted by the way kids are being brought up these days. I was just at the DMV this morning and almost EVERY KID in that place had some sort electronic device in their hands. There is no accountability anymore. Parents are getting lazier and lazier, their children becoming more brainwashed everyday. In fact, this is one of the reasons I don’t want to bring children into this world, there is too much poison to truly protect your family. Disney, Nickelodeon and YouTube are not appropriate entertainment for kids!! Wake up people! Peace, Love and Light!!

GodIsTheStrengthOfMyHeart

The world has always been messed up. Imagine having kids in ancient times when there was even less law and order, and the threat of a different people coming in and killing you and kidnapping your family was a very real possibility. That didnt scare them from having familes. Dont let these people scare you so much, cuz then they’ve already won. I myself cant wait to start a family. My job as a man is to protect them and thats what i’ll do. Im not going to allow them to scare me to the point where i stay some lonely hermit locked in a basement. Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Well good luck to you in trying to protect your future kids because it will be one hell of a job to do. You can do your utmost best in the confines of your own home, but once the kids step out into society then it’s a whole different ballgame. They are being influenced by other kids, teachers, irresponsible adults and the media (celebrities). Back then you could say you had more control over what your kids are exposed to but in this day and age where everything is computerized, microchipped, common core sanctioned by the government, big brother etc then you can only do so much as a parent in protecting their impressionable minds and cultivating independent thought.

It’s possible to protect kids from a lot of that, though. We have 3 kids. We homeschool and are careful with what they watch and hear, and we choose good associates for ourselves abd them. We eat well and avoid most medications and no to vaccines. So far we are as happy as we can be in this system.

Actually 4 kids lol.

Brilliant Sara. Best wishes to you and yours. Roy

Maybe you should do us all a favor and keep your unvaccinated kids away from everyone.

If your kids are vaccinated what would you need to worry about Marcus? Don’t those vaccines work?

FFS do people realize that SANITATION AND PLUMBING are the real reasons why we don’t have rampant disease ? Come on, talk about not knowing facts try learning some truth, minimal research shows you exactly what’s in these vaccines and absolutely none of it is life saving. You know what else makes for outbreaks of previously eradicated diseases, migrants and immigrants from third world countries WITH POOR SANITATION.

Marcus – If the vaccines work as well as they claim, why would you fear unvaccinated kids. Yours are all protected, right? Or do you work for a pharma company and get paid to spread your fear and lies? Hey parents, get the facts.
Watch the movie Vaxxed and learn what was leaked by Dr. Thompson at the CDC……Remember the big tobacco coverup, except this time it is our kids suffering at the hands of corporate greed..

While I commend you for not being one of the herd, only naive and misinformed parents would deny their kids the simple right to immunisation. You are putting them and those they associate with at grave risk of preventable diseases. My parents did not immunise me. I suffered through measles, mumps, chicken pox and rubella. I wish I hadn’t gone through that. All 3 of my kids have all of their shots. Grow up. read some modern science books. /rant

Really? Ever hear of shingles? There are ton’s of cases of children turning autistic and even dying from shots. The immune system and proper nutrition/exercise is all kids need.

I don’t think facts are things anti vaxers are interested in.

Well, you should be glad you “suffered” from these very common diseases. It was only temporary and your immune system grew stronger with each illness. Essential for a healthy life on the long term. Ever wondered why so much young children get cancer, nowadays?

Good for you Sara. I have a teen and she is unschooled, not on FB, not exposed to popular culture. There are so many real and beautiful things out there. As parents we need to protect our kids, and that includes protecting them from toxic vaccines.

Ok but, the one place I would totally put a device in my child’s hands would be the fing DMV.

I agree. I’m strict on controlled screen time, and tablets never take precedent over outside play. But at some bureaucratic shithole with nothing but the buzz of fluorescent lights and the ominous sound irritated murmuring, yea the phone or tablet seems like a viable option.

LOL That’s exactly the problem. Why can’t they color in a coloring book? Or play with a toy car? The problem is LAZINESS, not the florescent lights in a government building.

I see this wih my own sister sadly…..am disgusted by it all

Flatearthcouldberealcuztheyliesomuch
Great comment DeeLish, until the end……..with your peace, love, and light thing:( Thank you for this platform for me to take a moment to say: Right now is the time for us all to realize that this earth will only know of peace, love, light, and truth amongst other things…….WHEN Jeshuah returns. He is waiting for those of us who are awake, to open our eyes. Each of us are building our spirit’s character even at this very minute. What a strange time we are living in. It is tough to see through all the brainwashing and lies that belong to this dead world. Wow, your spirit must be strong already if you truly hear this and know it. Jeshuah is preparing a place RIGHT NOW for you. John 14:1-7 Will you be a teacher, farmer, rancher, scholar, carpenter, artist, or even something else?

Oooof really? -5? WOW!
The Christians truly are gone from this site. I’ve been here since the beginning, but its time to say…..”whatever it is that the muslims say for bye!”
Good luck with your stuff, all.

You’re making a bad name for Christians. You sound more like a bigot than anything. PEACE LOVE AND LIGHT!

I’m so glad you posted this article. Our 3 year old daughter has an iPod with just a couple of basic apps and a few months back we downloaded YouTube KIDS so she could watch her favorite cartoons. Soon after we starting seeing these weird videos popping up all the time and they were some of the exact ones you posted here and some others that are just as bad if not worse. My wife and I kept saying who the hell is filming this, for what purpose and how would it end up on a kids app? All of it didn’t sit right with us and we ended up having to delete the app. Something truly sinister is going on here and requires further investigation!

Just deleting the app isn’t sufficient. Personally I would’ve thrown the IPod out the window because there is no reason for a 3 year old to have one. If you guys really love your daughter, then dont let an Ipod destroy the most vital years of her mental development.

I have no clue how it became acceptable to hand a portable cancer causing device to a child that also contains all of the worst things that humanity and evil itself have to offer. The parental controls rarely work because there is always some evil scum sneaking their filth into children’s content. Also, I don’t think devices help in a child’s development in any way. These devices are being promoted by the same cabal that this site exposes. An iPad is another handheld corruption system that will probably will knock 5-10 years off of your lifespan.

Ipads don’t cause cancer you fool.

Sure they do, a*****e. It’s called cancer of the mind. It’s dumb fks like you that keep this s**t going.

Grass hopper – there are some Great apps for mental/cognitive development, learning language and maths etc. You don’t burn all the books just because some are porno

The “Net”. The “Web”. Burn the fking computer.

3 years old huh? and already plugged in. sad. hey maybe try putting a reeeaall book in her hands instead. or how about a musical instrument?

My 3 year old does all the above. There’s nothing wrong with watching videos with a toddler. Obviously the parents above *are* paying attention to what their kid is watching, or they wouldn’t have noticed and tried to take action. Some videos are educational, even ones from non-educational shows. Animaniacs has a few great ditties about the world and our universe. Sometimes shows and things have a way of reaching kids in ways that we can’t. Kids don’t always want to be on their parents laps looking at books, and most parents need to prepare meals or do work around the house; thus we need to distract them while we do said tasks. Most wee ones will often rip pages in a book, and we don’t always want to listen to them “make music”. Unless a person is deaf, quite often the loud repetitive noises of a tots music instrument… Read more »

There is everything wrong with 3 year olds watching videos. No matter what videos. What is wrong with you? A child needs it’s parents’ love, spending time with parents/grandparents so it can learn from them, and being outside in the fresh air.

Jim – so you haven’t heard of the baby Einstein videos? I bet you haven’t even got a kid. Videos are fine in moderation

That “your baby can read” DVD set actually works. It’s highly educational quality stuff. Some screen time can be very positive. It’s lazy parents or neglect guardianship that’s the issue.

Exactly. We don’t all have maids and cooks, thus allowing us to give our kids 100% of our attention 100% of the time. Some of us *are* maids and cooks.

Why can’t you INVOLVE your kids in cooking and cleaning???
That is what I did with all 3 of my children and it is the BEST Thing for them! It teaches them about life and BUILDS THEIR SELF-ESTEEM!!! “I can cook, I can bake, I can sweep and help mommy and daddy” (and be a grown up who can handle life, some day.)
This is what we should all be teaching our children- it can even be FUN! With a little imagination and a good attitude and true LOVE for your kids- you can make chores into ‘Quality time’!!!

I didn’t see anyone say they give their children free reign over electronics. For being self described “christians” there is a lot of judging others, self importance and self righteousness in this comments section. Very unchristian like behaviour in my humble opinion. As with most things, moderation is key. I studied childhood development and there are multiple studies that suggest that children who play open ended games like Minecraft, hidden object games, games like Tetris, and educational games score higher on tests measuring perception, IQ, and the speed in learning “novel” ideas. I don’t remember the exact numbers, but this was only true when children were allowed a limited time with technology (I think it was up to 30 minutes a day). There was no benefit to spending more time on technology and that scores decreased for children who regularly used tech devices over a specific time frame (again I… Read more »
With my 6 oldest kids I wouldn’t have agreed. But 9 years after the 6th was born we had a little premature baby girl who has Down Syndrome, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and is partially deaf. We first got her an iPad when she was 2 after seeing her interact on one at her early childhood development program (a playgroup run through special education in Australia). The number of apps that are made for kids with special needs has really opened up the world of language to her. We subscribe to a few special needs programs designed to help her language development, motor skills, spatial awareness, knowledge etc. in addition to this, she has some videos we have downloaded such as the Wiggles. We are about to get her a second iPad at the age of 8, which will be used only as a communications device as she needs… Read more »

I don’t want my four month old son around a stove or deep fryer, thank you very much. Do you let you kids around bleach or other harmful things?

Because kids aren’t always cooperative and sometimes trying to get them to help is the opposite of fun for those involved? It’s called knowing when to pick your battles. Sure, sometimes they help out happily. Other times I get sick of asking then telling then nagging and then we need time outs from each other; which is when it’s better to do the jobs myself. But when there’s no time out needed, the wee one still needs to keep off the floor while it dries after mopping. She gets bored with books or toys, yet old school Sesame Street or not-quite-golden oldie videos (like Buddy Holly) keep her attention long enough for the floors to dry. Yeah, sure, judge me for letting my kids watch stuff (that I have watched myself and made specific play lists for; like educational fun, or older music. Like I know the Periodic Table let… Read more »

My kids grew up with these wonderful videos!!!!!! And, as they got older, the Little Einsteins cartoons. Every episode has a featured classical score and work of art that is very present throughout the adventure. AMAZING and has continued to nurture my son’s love for the Classics. Screen time is absolutely ok when PROPERLY “managed” as i could never introduce those genres as seemlessly as they do!!! And we watch it together, interact with the adventure, dance etc. Just another way for us to spend time together. Obviously, there is time when the tv is off and they just play. But there’s something magical when my kids hear a score and look up to us and say “you know that song!” <3

Or even Super Why, where they have a GREAT motto “when you have a question, we look, in a book!” Not Google; a BOOK! There areee good shows for your kids to help learn what i can’t teach. Because, in today’s world, sometimes momma and dadda gotta cook or clean or just need a moment!!!

Kids can help with chores and this can be ‘quality time’, with their parents. It is the parents job to teach their kids and build their self-esteem!!!

The little Einstein episodes were exposed to be extremely lacking in true educational content. There was a lot of info that came out on it. Google it. Simply having classical music and imagery of objects was not enough and actually hurt some kids development. There wasn’t enough information and the images moved too fast for children to truly comprehend any real meaning. You drank the koolade.

You sound ignorant- and I have 3 children- all of whom were never given these things, including the video games of ‘violence and death’. This is a form of ‘desensitization’ and ‘brain-washing’- Look it worked on you!!!
Parents who truly love their children will want to teach them by example. Good parents also should WANT to spend time talking to them, and teach them about God, and INVOLVING them in whatever they are doing, themselves- such as baking, cooking, gardening, reading, making crafts, coloring, running around OUTSIDE!!! ETC.!!! ETC.!!!

I play violent videogames, yes, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to go to school and take out the .42… If I had to kill a chicken I would barely be able to, much less a HUMAN BEING.

I agree with you!!! Thank you!!!

Kids most of that age most certainly do not needs screens and moving clips to induce interest in discovering this world, in my humble opinion. Coloured blocks of wood will do more to their fantasy and imagination. But you have to give them a story – not someone on the other side of the world or some wified devise. Why deminish you own role to just a part of it?

D d d – are you from the Victorian era? For actual f**ks sake

It is about the learning of the brain to be creative. Pushing buttons or icons of apps is nothing compared to being able to imagine and develope something in your own mind. It is not about being able to cope with the devise/telephone/tablet, as some might think. I use them myself, too. But such discussion is again about the form. A 3 year-old has no use of being able to use a phone, as it should be under supervision of an adult most of his time, don’t you agree on that? Then learning to use the brain comes before learing use be lazy-but-smart enough to have some electronic devise ‘help’ them in real life. I hope I have not offended anyone, that I have used neutral words. But most of all, I hope that I have not pushed any faith-buttons so that religion will be left out of any reaction-comment… Read more »
I agree 100%!!! Children should be using their own minds and imaginations, not being fed images and garbage from the internet! Especially at such a young age. Maybe the conspiracy theories are really true! They have completely indoctrinated the young people of today into believing they must all be linked to the internet and social media at all times, even 3-year-olds! They were not raised this way themselves. Imagine what will happen to this new, upcoming, generation!!! It is SO SAD!!! Loss of God- force-fed in schools, the loss of family values and actual -mother and father families, as trans-genders and gays take over. Also, the ‘desensitization’ of the population as we are fed more and more sex, violence, p*********y, and death and occult themes and images- in all the music, movies, and television programming- it is TRUE!!! The end is coming! I hope and pray people will come to… Read more »

Lazy parenting- you don’t truly care about your children! The only way to raise them is to be engaged with them! It is not about ‘loving’ them by giving them devices to shut them up!!! Or about looking like a ‘cool’, ‘with it’ parent or something. If you care more about your image- than your child’s health and well-being -you should not be having children!

How about just getting out and exploring the world.

Don’t take your 3 year old to the DMV!!!!

ChristianMother: Exactly, keep your children away from the rest of us who are just trying to renew our drivers license!!

Thank You!!! I agree 100%!!!

There is No reason why a 3 year old needs a computer!!! You just want to be lazy
parents- or care more about your ‘yuppie, cool parent image’ ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ mentality- that is what this sounds like!
Kids don’t ‘rip’ books- unless they are not being raised properly! They need to be taught about values, morals, and how to behave and what is expected of them!!! This is done by truly loving your kids and spending time with them and treating them as a human being and not as just a nuisance to be shut up with television or computers!!!!

Yes! I couldn’t agree more Thy Unvielling. Same as above, I noticed a sinister turn in the videos my 3 year old was watching several months back. She showed me a video w/ Peppa Pig stabbing George Pig w/ a huge syringe. We immediately deleted all YouTube and YouTube Kids apps from all devices. She had the iPad for educational apps the ABCmouse and was only occasional YouTube time and those sick bast**ds were still able to slip this vile swile pass our parental restrictions, blocks and watchful eye.

A book would cost extra money and an instrument makes noise. Children have to sit on their butts, don’t bother and be quiet. That is all the parents want.

There’s also the damage done to the child’s eyesight from watching rapid movements on a screen. The images move much faster than anything in the natural world. There will be long term negative effects from young children staring at screens.

I don’t even have a phone with internet and your 3 year- old has one? This is not necessary. It’s wrong.
As you saw, but you still allow this- any way?
When I was a kid, we didn’t have computers, or internet, or portable phones. We brought coloring books and crayons (our mother brought these for us) and real books and toys.
You could make being at the DMV, into a time to spend ‘quality time’ with your daughter— actually talking to her, teaching her about God, reading, coloring together, playing other children’s games, etc.
Use your imagination! Maybe… don’t force your 3 year- old to even have to go to such a dreary place -where there isn’t accommodation for a child, really. You can make it acceptable by your parenting choices though, if it’s absolutely necessary for her to be there!!!

ChristianMom, I get that you are passionate and have strong feelings about this subject, but you need to chill a little bit. Your message has a lot of good truths in it, but the instense judgement is a real turn off. Loving and wonderful parents can entertain their kids with some nursery ryhmes on YouTube while waiting at the DMV. That does not make them bad parents. Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. Not everyone has kids with the same temperament as yours.

christianmother47, So everyone who isn’t parenting like you is doing it wrong then? Seriously, you sound just like my mother. Let’s go ahead and bring up all the faults of everyone else to try and minimize yours. Does that make you feel better about yourself? I was raised to play outside and help out around the house. I ALSO was allowed to play video games and the computer. I went to an art school with lots of other gamers and techies. They have an excellent sense of imagination and are also vivid dreamers and genuinely hard-working GOOD PEOPLE. Like many others have said, moderation is key. If you want to keep technology from your children, that is your choice. But they will be at a disadvantage when they grow up and aren’t up to date with the ever-evolving tech world. That is where the world is headed, like it or… Read more »
ChristianMother: You are the exact reason why most people run from Christianity. While you do have some good points, your self righteousness is blinding your true meaning. Just because someone is doing something different from you, doesn’t make them less than you. We don’t all worship the same God and we don’t have to. Seems like you may have a good grasp on what good parenting is but if you are teaching them to condemn others who don’t think the same way as them…well then you are adding to all the angst and poison in this world. I almost wonder if you come from the backwoods of Arkansas, telling all the colored folk to get off your lawn….? You see how that judgement thing works? Not very nice, now is it? Be the true peace and light in this world, stop pointing the finger and start effecting change. Oh and… Read more »

This is such a toxic thread. 🙁 I’m 19, and I’d like to have children at some point. Being paranoid about everything is sickening, and tbh I’m damn tired of being afraid.
One real issue in raising kids is their interaction with the world – children are exposed to inappropriate things at younger and younger ages, and for some reason people aren’t questioning it.
Have a quick story: I myself was exposed to p*********y at 12 years old. Recently, I broke my phone and used my younger sisters until Christmas came around and I could get a replacement – my sister had plenty of sexually-charged content in her YouTube history. She was only 10 at the time. That’s the downward spiral into both sexual immortality and development of voyeurism, obviously both things that are rampant in society today.

Glad you saw it and did what you did! One other thing every adult can do, along with deleting these apps, is to broadly alert the people they know about this hazard. Use all the ways avaiable: WhatsApp, Facebook, Live Conversations, etc. Let’s spread the word!!! Peace.
