I agree with you. When I was going through puberty I would have been absolutely mortified if my mother filmed it and uploaded it to the internet. As if the other kids at school don’t watch their vlogs and Julie already has a hard time at school with bullying, the last thing she needs is more bullying and embarrassment because her mother filmed all about her going into puberty. I feel so bad for the kids on YouTube because their parents have no sense of boundaries and these kids have no privacy.Kataja wrote:I think she is exposing her children at the moment when they are most vulnerable. Puberty is such a sensitive topic and where I share the sentiment that it should not be shameful, Still they should be allowed to their privacy. The discussion about puberty should be off the camera.Bollie_Dollie_4_Life wrote:Did she serioulsy just post a 9 min. video about popping pimples? Seriously? I couldn't watch it. She is forcing and encouraging her young girls to grow up way before their time. Just because you get a pimple doesn't mean you are a "woman". She is in such a hurry for her girls to grow up so they can get married and pregnant at 18 years old. I bet tomorrow's vlog will be a "welcome to womanhood" part for Julie. It's ridiculous. She is causing so much damage to her children. These video's are seen by their neighbors, their church family, their class mates, the people who see them out in public and the rest of the world. Does Ruby not think Julie is going to get teased for stupid video's who exploite her? Shaving legs, popping pimples, getting their periods, apparently NOTHING is off limits to Ruby. So sad what she is doing to her children for money. And if all that wasn't bad enough, she catches Chad at the end of the vlog and vooms in to his armpits and say's "well, not too much hair in the armpits yet" as if she is giving us all an update on Chad's coming into his "manhood". And she talks about doing a vlog about the girls getting their periods.....Shari chimed in that she wanted nothing to do with it........Some things need to be kept private. Having your period isn't shameful or a bad thing, but my God, keep some things private and respect your children. Even if they say they don't care now, they are young girls, think about their future selves. Think about them at age 15, 18, 21, and as an adult. Things you post on the internet are there FOREVER. Hope the money is worth it Ruby.
Because they are young, I don't think that they can consent. Even they would say to their mom, that it is ok, it is still not. They still think that they need to do anything to please their parents and cannot (and shouldn't be made to) draw the line for the parents what is ok and what's not. Later in their life they might end up blaming themselves (for no reason, but mommy-dearest cannot be the guilty one) and regretting things that were shared online.
I think what Ruby is doing right now, is harmful for the kids' emotional growth. They are forced to be young adults when they should still be playing like kids with no worry of adulthood.
I think openness about puberty is important but it shouldn't be done at the cost of someones privacy!
