Have An Opinion?
Neither, I think the person putting the content up is responsible if it’s showing a harmful activity and passing it off as safe.Ie if someone copies a daredevil, obviously injury was on the table so it’s their own fault. If someone copies a makeup tutorial and ends up with chemical burns while following the instructions, that’s on whoever uploaded it. They’d have had to be negligent in my opinion.If you go after the platform you force them into the role of censor which gets problematic fast as they have political/social bias. If you go after the parents you just damage family integrity and make the situation worse. Target the parents through educational campaigns and funding for children’s programs to get them off their screens if you’re worried about that.
So basically if you posted a video about roasting campfire nuts or making smores , if your fault if a child gets hurt? .. I think there is a another way to look at this. As a parent you need to teach you child as much as you can about the world about what's right and wrong and about people to a certain degree also about what to do if you see others doing it. And how it's unsafe of course the child will not listen till they get hurt. But the point is it's (, child's) fault if they knew and the parents fault for not teaching them better if the child did not understand. Cause all in all we are the Masters of our own fate some can take the wheel at times but we choose what we want to do and how to respond to itSo if a child finds a video of exploding cheese and says that's funny I want to try it. It's still the child fault for not asking the parents first.
If they posted a video about roasting s’mores and showed a dangerous way of making them without explaining the risks the video maker would be on the hook in my opinion. It would have to be obvious negligence and not an everyday activity and an accident though.
That makes sense , thank you for clearing that up for me
All good, it’s just my take on how to handle it. We all have slightly different priorities so will come up with slightly different answers Id think.
True , you have to take responsibility for what you teach same goes for parenting or a video making
I completely agree on an individual level, if it were my kid Id hope I’d taught them enough common sense to catch anything obvious. That said kids/teens have issues thinking ahead/foreseeing and accurately predicting consequences. Not that they’re necessarily stupid, their brain is just re-patterning from childhood to adulthood and things aren’t settled yet.
There are parental restrictions that you can put into place to restrict your kid's Youtube access. But I wonder what category a popcorn making video would fall under? I doubt it would even have been listed as adult or unsafe... Who knows what the situation was. Were the kids home alone before the parents arrived? Did they telll the parents what they were doing? We have so little information. If parents had been around and saw the setup, I'm sure sane ones would've stopped these girls. Even doing it "safely" looked dicey to me. It's a tragic accident.
The person Whom made the video! Warning signs should be made prior to video being played (By the person making the video), If the child is unwilling to read and not pay attention to the said signs, then the parent is to blame for un-supervised surfing.The child should be taught "Appropriate" measures, before being allowed, to surf the web. If precautions such as parental guidance settings have not been placed with passwords, The parent is not doing their job. May be harsh, but the world is full of un-caring or kind people!
In this case the kids are at fault for doing dumb shit. The video or the creator of the video has not even a hint of blame for what had happened. Now if a creator purposely puts out harmful information without a warning then yes they have a play in the harm done to others. The platform doesn't have anything to do with it at allThe parents have alil bit to blame for not teaching their children common sense and basic information of how fire and a fuel source work.The kids are the only sorce of blame in this instance.
I would say the blame would fall on the parent and or parents. Its the right of the creator to make any kind of video which they please, so place about 10% on the media channel for possibly not placing enough warning about the content of the video, leaving 90% of the fault on the parents, as parents it is our responsibility to ensure the safty of our children, so much so that parents should instinctively double check all safty procautions, be completely aware of the thing they watch, as well as watch said material prior to insure it is infact child friendly content, and to never turn a blind eye to the possibilities of the children mimicing the things they see on television, tablets and any other media playing device.
It’s the parents job to monitor what their kid does on the internet. You have to be over 13 to create a YouTube account but it’s so easy to fake your age and many kids do. A content creator has a target audience and will cater to that demographic but they can’t control who watches their videos
Depends on the age of the child. Children aren't capable of comprehending things that involve guilt, or being held responsible for their actions until about the age of 10. At that point they develop an appreciation for such things and can understand why something is morally right or wrong based on how they have been raised. In the case of a child getting harmed because they do something they see another do in a video, you technically have to blame the parent for allowing their child to surf the web unsupervised. The child does not know any better and they cannot be held accountable for their actions yet. If they were old enough to determine the danger of what the person in the video is doing, yet they still do it and they harm themselves, then it is the child's fault.
How would they get hurt... is there some new kind of laptop that reach out of the screen and bitch slap that fucking sack of shit you call a kid when its watching a video? Of you mean the kid trys to copy what it sees and gets hurt then its the parents fault for having such a slack jawed kid and not teaching it the basics of survival and want to get all outraged when it then gets hurt... i have an idea parents who do this shit... try to raise the kid yourself and not rely on youtube to raise them for you
It's a little bit of everyones fault. YouTube needs to get rid of the obviously dangerous things targeted at kids, parents need to me more responsible with what they let influence their kid, and the kid needs to have common sense or ask their parents for help with something before attempting it. I want to say it's the kids fault but when I was a kid there was so much I did that I couldn't control or didn't know that I look back on now and feel embarrassed about.
Kids honestly shouldn't be using the internet anyway. Not only is it way too easy to (accidentally) find porn, but there is so much toxicity kids can pick up. This is the result for kids who have lazy parents who have their devices do the babysitting for them.
the parents for raising dumb ass kids. back in my day we didn't need some stupid message on tv saying dont try this at home because we werent stupid enough to. nowadays people are complete morons with no brains and no common sense which by the way common sense is becoming an endangered species
The kid is to blame since youtube has nothing to do with it, parents can't possibly surveil a kid 24/7 and the creater didn't show anything dangerous. The kid didn't follow the instructions and instead improvised with instructions from different videos, that wouldn't even have been dangerous either and then added alcohol to a burning flame. Nobody told her to do that, she was just stupid.
No one should be blamed. Accidents are going to happen and it is impossible to prevent all accidents. If injury occurs, almost always they are minor but occasionally they are major. Everyone in sports has injuries; usually they are minor such as a bruise or sprain, occasionally a broken bone, and more rarely a major injury or death.
Gross negligence is the point where you absolutely should have known you were being irresponsible, but decided to do it anyway. Understanding this is a fine starting point to taking responsibility for your words and actions. Ideally, we'll all speak and do things that benefit each other, and each other's children. Until then, we suffer the idiots who'll do anything for a dime.
Parents. They is Youtube Kids and parental guidance is always adviced. Most Youtubers are not kid friendly and they target Democracy is teens/young adults. Just because they play a kids game like Nintendo Games, Minecraft or The Sims does not mean they are kid friendly and cater to young kids.
i think that it is the fault of the parents and the kids. when i was a kid, me and my brother knew not to try to do anything on wwe because my mom had told us how dangerous it was and even as little kids we didn't do it. so that goes with the parents and the kids in my opinion
It would be the person’s who published the video fault. There should be a warning before explicit scenarios. Next it would be Youtube’s fault for not taking control over that kind of videos. But parents? I mean parents can tell their kids to not watch that kind of things but you can never stop them as there is way too many websites and videos to block.
Watched the first part of the video. They yelled to replicate a homemade tea candle by using alcohol as a heat source and added more while the flame was burning straight from the bottle. Flame follows alcohol, bottle explodes, kid gets burned on 96% of her body. This was the kid's fault, or maybe the parent's. Not the creator's. Gotta know fire safety before you start playing with it.
*tried, not yelled
The kid is to blame or the parents for not teaching the kid to use his brain that's why they say on tv DONT TRY THIS AT HOME. But some people have that daredevil flowing in there veins and sometimes on the ground... lol that's one of the many big problems with today's society... everyone is looking for someone to blame!!
the way you worded that question made it sound like the kid fell off a bike while watching a video lol well it's just the world we live in today when I was a kid we didn't have these problems who was lucky to have television if you wanted to speak to your friends you had to get off of your fat ass and go find them.
Honestly! If there are no warning signs on the YouTube video for a DIY tutorial and the tutorial is actually dangerous, then it is the YouTubers fault. If there are warning signs but the kid still gets hurt because they didn't pay attention to the signs then that is obviously the kids fault and the parent of the kid who should have been paying more attention to what the child is doing
If the YouTube creator intentionally uploaded a video encouraging people to do something stupid and dangerous, and did not warn people about the danger, it is the fault of the YouTube creator. Many of them would anything to earn money and often it hurts people.
First of all, the youtuber. A youtuber can do anything to gain views and that is getting out of control. Then also, parents, they should control what their kids watch.
The parents, obviously? You aren't even supposed to be on YouTube unless you're 13+. They should have been watching their kid better.
For the people saying its the kids fault or Youtube thats just stupid... its the parents faults because they should be more proactive in their childs life and work on censoring certain media and if it can't be censored, block a platform or have them watch youtube with their parent nearby..
No matter how much you try to shield a child or censor it won't be enough. Teach a kid actions have consequences. Also if you do something stupid it's not going to end well. So yes it is the kids fault in my own opinion
you just contradicted yourself
you said teach a kid his actions have consequences... THATS THE PARENTS JOB! How is it the kids fault if the parents are supposed to teach whats wrong and whats right to begin with..
Still even if you teach a kid that they are still going to do stupid stuff.. it's what kids do
well yeah thats true I can't argue with that
1st of all how old are we talking about? 3-6 yrs? 6-12? That young parents should be watching there kids better. teens if your stupid enough to do some of those things on youtube well guess what you deserve what you got.
The parent for letting them watch that stuff. That is why they have parental control.
Do we blame smith and weston every time there is a gun shooting?
Parents are ultimately responsible for what their children do, what they watch and who they talk too.
The Parents of the child is totally responsible how there child reacts toward the music or videos they are subjecting themselves to. Spoiling your child or children can and could possibly destroy there way of life in the future. Love them unconditionally with showing the discipline and right from wrong and they will respect you and others as well as themselves.
Adults are responsible for themselves (at least theoretically, although the % of my tax bill that supports freeloaders would argue against that notion). Parents are responsible for minor children.
If the creator did not warn of the potential danger behind it then I believe it's the creater to blame. But if the creator did warn about it, but kids still did it then it's the kids fault
Duh! C. None of the above. It’s the dumb kids fault.
Well if the creator is telling people to do things that's dangerous then obviously the creator is to blame.
First and foremost it’s the kid’s fault for doing something stupid and after that it is the parent's fault for not providing appropriate guidance, education, and supervision to their stupid child.
Personally, I feel as if the parent should be blamed. A parent should always teach a child to not reenact to things they see in movies tv shows or videos
For watching it the kid. For the kid to do the stupid stunt the kid.
Well is mostly the parents, because they need to pay attention to what content is the kid watching
Blame is not an indivisible quantity. It can be shared by one or more people who play a role in the occurrence.
Kids dont get hurt watching videosThey get hurt imitating dumb shit they see in videos, and they have only themselves to blame
no one - let this be a lesson for your kid. And the lesson is - Think about consequences! Don't do stupid, potentionally dangerous stuff
Blame the kid and parents but they can’t be always in his back so it’s a trap
The kid, they're probably not super smart. Stupid people do stupid things
It is the parents fault for giving their kids unsupervised access to the internet. Stupid parents endanger their kids.
I would like to know how anyone, let alone a child ends up getting hurt watching a video?
The child as long as the parent has viewed content and 9k
The parents for not teaching their children correctly, not watching them, and not caring enough.
The f*cking kids fault!, lol. Should know better the little numpty!
His parents. It's their job to make sure the kids won't watch stuff they shouldn't. Attacking the person putting the content is the same as censoring him, for everyone else, including adults.
Coming from a mom of 2 that let's her children watch YouTube. It's the parents. You should ALWAYS be monitoring what they watch.
Parents fault. But I'm more inclined to say both. However parents should be proactive in preventing such things on happening.
Just watched the beginning of video. It's creators fault.
The parents fault.The child should know common sense but parental controls are also severely under used.
The fuckin kid is responsible for his dumbass decisions
I haven't heard of a single case of being hurt from watching a video. Like how the hell is a video supposed to hurt anyone? You cray cray?
Parents definitely, but the creators should put warnings on their videos. Kids are able to watch YouTube behind their parents backs.
The kid because every video over seen says don't try this at home besides that it's a video use common sense
Both. YouTube will find a way to demonize the channel and take the money, and the parents are at fault for not monitoring what the kids are watching.
*demonitize. Also why the downvote? It's true. Anything gets you demonitized, also parents should monitor what their kids watch.
Parents are to blame. Parents are 100% responsible for their children's development, actions and outcomes. That is something that seems lost on a lot of parents today.
Obviously the parents for not keeping an eye on the kid and what they are doing.
It is the child’s fault.Personal responsibility for your actions, people.
How does a kid get injured watching a video? Eye strain?
I think what she meant is that the brain affects or the kid doing dangerous things like what is in the video
Parents! Youtuber/ influencer are not obliged to raise your children.
