Are YouTube videos appropriate for preschool children?
Just like anything on the interenet, it completely depends on what they are looking at. There are lots of great videos on YouTube that are educational, or just plain fun for preschoolers... there are also Many MANY MANY more that would be completely inappropriate for preschoolers.
Mason loves to watch a walkthrough of his favorite video game (minecraft) on YouTube. We have found one user that makes really family friendly videos and we let him watch that every so often. Audrey loves watching ballet or other dance lessons and I super enjoy watching her try out her moves that she learns!!!
Do you let your kids watch videos on YouTube? Which ones?
So, I think there can be some really great things about it, but as parents it's our job to monitor what they're watching.
