The Dale Tribe

Postby kgiff77 » Sun Feb 19, 2017 7:17 pm

Does anyone watch them? They're a small youtube family with 4 kids. Their youngest daughter is a type 1 diabetic. Just wanted to hear anyone's opinion on them if they watch.

Yes, I watch them. They are so lovable and Aspen is so cute. Amy (the mommy) started this channel as a basic family vlogging channel and on their way they found out Aspen has type 1 diabetes. Since then they're vlogging about their life & living with a diabetic kid. Very easy to watch and they have a pretty big fan base world wide. They are awesome and pure and don't have the feeling the parents are hungry for attention..

I watch them sometimes and I love them. I started watching because I'm also type 1 diabetic and was diagnosed a couple months before Aspen.

I started watching them a few days ago and I can't stop' I find myself watching their old videos all the time! They seem like the sweetest family, I like how their vlogs are just casual day to day life.. nothing crazy just "for the vlog", they seem like really nice people.

I found them a few months ago and love them. I don't watch them as much as I do my favorite vloggers, but they seem like really genuine people. I went back and watched some older videos and it's so inspiring to see how much healthier Aspen seems now. I think they've all done a great job managing her diabetes. She's a strong kid too, I can't imagine getting diagnosed at that age. She's a champ.

I like them, but both parents get to yammering. I's be in the kitchen while my daughter is watching, and one of them will start talking. I will finish whatever I'm doing, and they will still be talking! And almost every vlog title is something horrible with the daughter's diabetes. She is a cute kid, and is obviously dealing better with it than I would. But it seems sometimes like her parents are using for views.

Couldn't agree more. Especially the mom. I usually skip it when they're filming themselves going on and on and on.

I think it's good that they're showing that you can have a normal childhood with diabetes, but the "Low Blood Sugar at Disneyland!" type vlog titles, I find to be exploitive. It's great to educate people. I certainly don't mind them talking about it, or showing how she deals with it. It's much better than SlyFox's Andrew and his horrible diet, and late night runs to the pharmacy because he's in danger of running out of insulin. But they have used it several times as clickbait-- and by that I don't mean that what they talk about doesn't happen, but hyping the drama of a child's blood sugar swings for vlog views isn't right.

I totally agree that they are using Aspen's diabetes for clickbait which is unfortunate. Let's face it. They are an affluent family. Jon is a successful entrepreneur who provided an affluent life for his family long before youtube. They don't need to do clickbait. They don't need to do sponsored videos to get free stuff. And much of the free stuff they get (like today's video- a mattress) is unaffordable to middle and low income people. I wish they would stop that; if a company approaches them, I wish they would encourage the company to donate to a charity instead. After all Jon makes a big deal of their Christianity!

Ugh! Another click-bait title concerning Aspen's diabetes and a promo for Embassy Suites today! Disgusting! Most people cannot afford the Embassy Suites in downtown Denver for 1 night and the Dale tribe gets it for free for several nights when they live in a swanky house in a wealthy suburb of Colorado Springs. Such greed! I watched the first 30 seconds and turned it off immediately when I realized what Jon was doing.

And again! Another click-bait title related to their daughter's diabetes! (Middle of the Night Pump change at Hotel!!!) With three exclamation points. Have these people no shame? And now they are selling awful tee-shirts. I refuse to click on any of their click-bait diabetes titles anymore. If I want to know more about life and T1 diabetes, I'll go to "Diabetic Danica" or "Dreamflight6000".

I think their daughter is doing an amazing job dealing with it, but the way they use her diabetes for views is just disgusting.
And personally, I think the vlogs where they show her living a normal life, like when she went to Six Flags with her dad, do much more for showing how she is
doing, and living a normal life with diabetes.

^^^^^Yeah, I really liked Jon's time with Aspen at 6 Flags. And, if you are into ComicCon, you probably would enjoy Amy's segment about that. No damn promotions! But, then, what they do?!
Another click-bait title! (Insulin Pump Fail!!! A day in the Life of a Type 1 Diabetic!) Half the video is them promoting bed linens sold by Target. Briefly they show Aspen changing her pump; it's not a crisis; most "pumpers" can handle a insulin pump fail with ease and so can Aspen. And then the other half is Amy droning on and on about nothing particularly interesting. So not only do they have a click-bait title, the title is not even accurate! The video is not about a day in the life of a T1 diabetic at all. It's about pillows from Target!

A summary of the Dale tribe's latest video "Epic Indoor water Slide!!!". Note the three exclamation points!!!: It is I, Jon Dale and my daughter Aspen's fondest wish has been to visit a new indoor water park and resort that just opened up in Colorado Springs. So rather than treat my daughter and her friends to a night at the hotel and the water park and pay for them MYSELF, I, Jon Dale, a man who owns a 5 bedroom house worth half a million dollars and a garage full of dirt bikes, "reached out" to the resort and "partnered" with them. In exchange for promoting this resort on my lame video, I got the hotel and water park for free! Ain't youtube great! (And then I stopped watching after a minute because it was another lame promotional video.)

Did you see the one where the two younger kids spent 24 hours in the fort? They kept going on and on about how it was the biggest indoor fort ever. But the kids stayed in their little areas, glued to their screens for the whole 24 hours. What was the point of having a huge fort, if they each stayed in one spot? Dale kept saying "look! It's three floors!" So what? The kids didn't move more than two feet in either direction. Whatever.

That was totally bizarre. I mean my kids built forts with blankets and furniture but they crawled in and out of them, played hide-and-seek, pretended they were guarding a castle... They didn't just sit there, act like slugs and watch dvds. Weird!

So in "Epic Trampoline Tricks" Amy Dale shows us again why she is mom of the year. She doesn't like to do crafts with her kids so she sends them off to a friend's house to do crafts while she goes to the gym (leaving Eli and a friend alone in the house). She doesn't like to shop for food or cook meals for her family either. In the video she claims she doesn't like to eat meat and so decides to cook a "Fresh Express" vegetarian meal for HERSELF and orders pizza for the kids. She concludes this lame video by attacking the movie "Wizard of OZ", a film which is #6 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 films. She says the movie doesn't match the book. But, that's ok because she just loves Spiderman 3! (Anyway, Eli, Shae and Aspen did some neat tricks on the trampoline.)

The next day in "Rental Car Fail! Amy attempts to be a good mom and take the kids hiking. They live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado but she never takes them hiking because she hates hiking. But today will be different. Oh no! It's raining - they can't go. What to do? "I know ", says meat-hating Amy." I will take the children for burgers at the local bakery". So off the Dale tribe goes for more junk food and Amy manages to choke down a burger). But dinner time will be different surely....or will it? There's Amy droning in front of the camera while poor Aspen and her friend "fix" dinner consisting of chips, popcorn and soda. Way to go, Amy!!! (3 exclamation points)

Amy..Amy..Amy...tsk! tsk! Poor Aspen takes a tumble from her scooter and gets a bad gash on her knee. You wash it off (all the while saying incredibly stupid things) and one knee has a deep cut. What do you do? Instead of taking Aspen to her pediatrician or to a walk-in clinic where a nurse can thoroughly clean it and see if it needs stitches, you facetime with Jon in England!!! His old fart of a father (also in England), who hasn't practiced medicine in thirty years, squints at the Aspen's knee through facetime and pronounces it ok. In addition Apen's blood sugar shoots up to over 500! WTF!!! You live in a house worth half a million dollars. Your husband and daughter are off on an expensive two-week trip to England and you won't bother to take your injured type 1 diabetic daughter to a doctor. Why?! because you're poor??! Or because you don't want to be bothered! Big fat F for parenting Amy! (By the way, you leave the kids alone far too often to "workout" and I shudder to think what would have happened to Aspen if you had not been there.)

So how are we doing on the nutrition front? Good news-poor Aspen had to fix herself and her friend breakfast but she prepared fresh strawberries. (Good for you, Aspen!) Bad news-Hey, kids it's takeout pizza for dinner again because Mom can't be bothered to cook!

In the latest video "Shae's New Smile" we start off with some lovely footage in England. Beautiful bride. Beautiful church wedding. Anna looks great in her black dress and Jon is NOT wearing his raggedy-ass cap for which I am eternally grateful. I'm feeling optimistic that this video will not be filled with the usual idiocy!

Oops..spoke too soon. Back in Colorado it's Amy babbling to the camera about Walmart jigsaw puzzles while Aspen pulls together a sit-down breakfast of tea, strawberries and crackers. And guess who cooks dinner for the tribe? Why, 10 year old Aspen! It's Amy's new nutritional strategy-feed the kids nothing but take-out pizza and chips and ,out of sheer desperation, the kids will start fixing decent meals for themselves.

After dinner, we discover another result of Amy's "I do not like to grocery shop" philosophy. Aspen's PDM (personal diabetes manager) is running low on power and needs a new AAA battery. But-not one AAA battery in the house!! Now, understand that the PDM is the way Aspen communicates with her pump to administer insulin. "Gee, I forgot to buy some", says Amy. Not to worry, though. She'll get right on it tomorrow after she does her Walmart jigsaw puzzle!

But the most remarkable idiocy of the day is when Shae receives her new teeth alignment set from this outfit called the SMileDirectClub. The Dale tribe promoted this sleazy product a few weeks back. Got crooked teeth? Don't bother going to a reputable trained orthodontist? You can do-it-yourself! Just create an impression of your teeth with our kit, take some selfies of your mouth and we'll create "braces" and a "treatment plan" for you. You don't need to see a dentist or an orthodontist ever!

Now I get that many people cannot afford to see an orthodontist and they want their teeth to look nicer. So so SmileDirect might help even though there are risks. But the Dales are a wealthy family and can afford to have their 12 year old daughter evaluated by an orthodontist. To experiment with their child's teeth and risk serious complications with a company that advertises on late-night tv is beyond the pale!!! I am left awestruck by their stupidity!!! Dang, the video should have stayed in England.

Smiledirect is just as terrible as any other diy braces. You NEED to be examined by an orthodontist often to ensure that everything is working and not ruining the structure of your entire mouth. The sad thing is that you usually don't see the damage until a few years after you've ruined your teeth. It will be interesting to see what her mouth looks like 5 years from now.

In today's vlog, "Travel Adventures:Stonehenge...", the only adventure is wondering whether Jon will get beaten senseless with his baseball cap by a bystander for his rude and obnoxious behavior. In the presence of one of the wonders of the world, Stonehedge, he does lame English accents, attempts to cartwheel in front of Stonehedge, and asks fellow tourists idiotic questions. Even Anna is embarassed by him. And his uncle has to tell Jon to remove his cap before going indoors. Jon seems surprised by this bit of etiquette. Kudos to all his subscribers for pointing out that it is considered polite to remove your hat before going indoors in every country in the world including the US!

Back in Colorado Aspen is doggedly cooking up quesadillas while Amy works on a jigsaw puzzle. Aspen knows the only way to get hot home-cooked food in this house is to do it herself. Amy doesn't even make popcorn; She buys freshly-popped popcorn from the local movie theatre rather than making it herself!!!!! Shae films the family's junk drawer and Amy's feeble attempts at cleaning her own room. It's funny how the junk drawer and Amy's room look identical!

In summary, I'd like to direct a message to Jon in true Monty Python style (since he was lamely trying to mimic Monty Python in the vlog). Jon, you half-witted heap of parrot droppings, you second-hand git, you gormless ratbag, please show some respect when in the presence of one of the finest pre-historic monuments in Europe. Maybe your subscribers would like to see some footage of this amazing site rather than watch you act like an "arse-hole"!

I want to reach through the screen and smack him every time he tries his lame accent. I pick up accents really quickly, but I don't imitate them. It's rude.
And why aren't guys learning to take off their hats indoors? Shay wore a Trixin hat in the White House, ffs. Aaaarrrgh.
