It can be challenging to manage what your kids see on YouTube — but it’s doable. The thing is, even when your kid logs on to watch a specific channel that you’ve approved, the related channels could be wildly inappropriate. YouTubers also appear in lots of other places on the web. Many actively cultivate audiences on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and other social media.
And many YouTubers are the subjects of fan fiction (stories about them written by fans on platforms such as Wattpad), which extends a YouTube star’s influence and reach. The bottom line is: Kids love to laugh — and they’ll bounce around YouTube to find whatever tickles their funny bones.
Our advice? Try to watch with them and talk about the videos when you can. Here are some of the most popular comedy YouTubers for kids. Language and content can be an issue on all of these, so note the recommended ages.
