Parents Accused of Child Abuse After Dad ‘Pranks’ Kids for YouTube Views

YouTube has created a path to success that didn’t exist a decade ago. Now teenagers can make millions of dollars showing how they do their makeup, families can make a fortune producing goofy rap songs about parenting, and an anonymous lady who just unwraps toys made $5 million in a single year. That sort of success is extremely rare, but people know it exists, and that is causing some problems because YouTube video production is a largely unregulated industry. If you wanted to send your children to Hollywood to be actors or put them in commercials or on reality TV, there are laws and regulations in place to protect them and their money.

Spotting the signs of child abuse

Van Wert County Crime Victims Services Director Christina Eversole said recently that there are not a lot of convicted child abuse cases in Van Wert County. That doesn’t necessarily mean that more aren’t happening, Eversole said.
In many cases, individuals are afraid to report for fear of causing hard feelings in families or with friends and neighbors. Now, in the midst of Child Abuse Awareness Month (April), Eversole suggested several things that can and should be done when there is suspected child abuse.

“Documentation of stuff, whether written or pictures, is so important,” said Eversole. “You can call Children’s Services anonymously. Be in contact with law enforcement; you can always ask for a safety check of a situation where you might suspect child abuse.

Child Abuse Prevention Steps

Tips and Strategies
From the Washtenaw Child Advocacy Center
Child sexual abuse affects both boys and girls of all ages, in all kinds of neighborhoods and communities. The majority of perpetrators of child sexual abuse are people that the child, their family, and their communities know and trust. In fact, 90% of abused children know their abuser.

When we’re talking about preventing child sexual abuse, it is important to keep the focus on adult responsibility, while teaching children skills to help them protect themselves.

Meant to be a day for children to meet the leader of their nation and to have some fun, Trump inevitably made it about himself. When one child asked him to sign his hat, Trump happily did so… before flinging the hat far into the crowd, prompting a cry of rage from the disappointed child who just learned that hard way what kind of a man Donald Trump really is.
