What are Family Vloggers?
Family Vloggers are simply YouTubers who create content based on their 'family life', particularly with their under aged children as a focus. Majority of the time, Family Youtubers are rich and privileged, middle-class or upper-class couples with young children. They rarely have a job outside of YouTube, and if they do, it is generally the husbands who work while the wives stay at home to film videos about themselves and the young children. There are many types of Family YouTubers, such as General Rich-Privilege Families, Perfect-and-Prim Religious Families, Baby-Popper Families, Mixed Race Catering Families, and Straight Up Narcissistic Families. Sometimes it's a mix of these things.
Common Issues with Family Vloggers:
Capitalizing and exploiting their children who draw the majority of their views in and is the source of their income and fame. However, the children are too young to consent to be on camera and often don't have a choice or not given a voice. Parents selfishly do not think about how exposure to millions of strangers can endanger their children or how it will effect the child's future when they're adults. A lot of these parents are also underlying Stage Parents; they vicariously live out her own dream of being famous through the child.Attempting to generate an audience from 'being relatable' despite being rich and privileged and unable to sympathize or connect with normal people because they are extremely psychologically disconnected.Favoritism among children, particularly within mixed race families where the "more mixed/exotic" children get more attention and parental love. The same happens in families where one or more children may have health complications. These parent's treat these children differently because they are not "perfect". Sometimes, the child's mixed ethnicity or health complications is used to generate content or to cater to new audiences which is ultimately used for profit for the parents.Creating clickbait off tragic events and monetizing such events, such as children becoming sick, children having injuries, pregnancy problem scares, children dying, or even break-ins, miscarriages, children fighting, inter family problems etc.The Baby-Popper Families base their content off constantly having new babies to keep their audience interested, despite not being able to care for all of them or provide them opportunities to succeed in life. New babies exist to keep the parent's YouTube channel interesting to viewers.Perfect-and-Prim Religious Families are known for homeschooling their children for 'religious reasons', isolating them in a bubble inside their home which limits their abilities to form relationships outside of family. As a bonus, the couples do not practice family planning or contraception and promote that view as what makes them "perfect and godly".They sell their family image as if they were a business brand. Often times, they create merchandise, with the kids again used as a focal selling point.... to strangers.Share other problems I haven't mentioned below!Prominent Family Vloggers:
