An outraged dad has started his YouTube channel because his five children aged between 10 and 22 are always using their smart devives. The channel Joe Daddytube is meant to enable him communicate with his tech savvy kids.
He outlines his reasons in his first video. He says: “The reason I have set this up is because I am absolutely sick to death of seeing my kids constantly with their heads down on their phones. So if this is the only way I’m going to be able to communicate with them, that’s the way it’s going to be.
“I was just a bit upset this morning. I got up, I came down and I want to talk to my two beautiful daughters and their heads are on the phone, with it down like that, with their headphones on watching YouTube.”
This is a situation of If you can’t beat them you join them.
“I just thought to myself, ‘well, if you can’t beat them, join them’, so I had a really good suggestion from an old school friend of mine and she just said: ‘Why don’t you just start a YouTube channel?’ So I am.”
He added: “This goes out to all the parents out there who are absolutely sick to death of seeing your kids with their head buried in their phone watching YouTube. So, let this be the start of it.”
So far Joe has uploaded a three videos and hopes are up that the videos might increase.
