New Sis-in-Law Has a YouTube Channel

My husband's brother just married someone from the Philippines last year. She brought her kid here in the US, and they seemed well settled. I wouldn't know for sure as we rarely talk. Husband and I are very busy with the current demands of our jobs. And when we have some downtime, my invitations to her were always turned down - more on that on a separate post. She is not working, so she gets bored and would like to have something to do that can also be an income generator. She decided to do YouTube video logs or vlogs. She is already monetized, so I think she's already earning although last I heard the most that she earned is $9.00. She reached out to me to support her channel. I don't see any reason why not, and even though we rarely talk I have no issue with her. So I subscribed to her channel and watched all her videos. But try as I may, I cannot bear to watch any more of her videos. This may sound bad, but it's cringe-worthy. Her "life hacks" are dangerous, her minor child is exposed for all the world to see, and she is giving wrong information to those who plan to immigrate here. I pointed this out to my husband, and he told me to stay out of it, to stop watching her so I will not worry about it anymore, and to just let it be. Well, she is an adult and I am sure she knows what's right and wrong for her. I do hope she realizes the dangers of exposing your minor child on a public platform where information on where they live or go frequently is also shared for everyone to see.

I enjoy watching some Vlogs here and there but then it’s too exposed and no privacy.

Same here. I think that some vloggers get so fixated on number of likes and subscriber count that all caution are thrown out. But there are some whom I learn a lot of things too. I think balance is the key.

@Raine38 Yep balance is key. I also think it’s dangerous for those to vlog while driving. I don’t like that.

@infatuatedbby Oh yes, you're right! The infamous car vlogs, yikes. Some defend it by saying they do not have to hold the camera since they have a mount. But that still means that the driver is distracted. It's still not safe, for the vloggers and for those on the road with them. I think distracted drivers are as bad as drunk drivers.

I pointed that out to my cousin who was showing off her beautiful teen's report card one time. It had her name and HS on it. Not too smart. Cousin said it only goes out to her group of friends so she feels comfortable with it. She loves to post online so my guess is she has a big collection of "friends" I should check sometime.

@Raine38 Yes, even if she just sent it to her "friends" you never know who might be looking over their shoulder.

I hope she doesn't end up doing something too dangerous just for the sake her vidoes

I hope so too. No amount of money is worth their privacy and safety.

Now I am curious of that youtube channel of your sister-in-law. I want to see her videos. Please send me a link in a message. Maybe I have seen her videos already. I have also a channel but I have a travel vlog. Thank you.

That is so unfortunate, she must be really looking for something to do desperately that she doesn't remember the safety of her child. I wish there was a way you could advise her.
