I think that vein able to have a youtube channel at age 12 is okay because then the 12 year old can learn more about how technology and computers work. With youtube you can learn a lot of things like how to make videos, how to deal with subscriptions, and so on. The real world is out there and the age 12 is okay to know how things work. Starting at a late age for technology may not be so good because it is harder to learn that way. Therefore, I believe it is okay, it is the parent's choice if the child is under observation of their activity, but still it is okay.

Sorry that I have forfeited my round. I was not on Debate.org at the time and was not debating.

Point 1. Age 12 is not old enough to access some certain content that Youtube provides. Some content is not suitable for 12 year olds that would only come suitable at ideally age 18 or 15.

Point 2. There are many more ways that a 12 year old could learn about technology, such as: *just taking films with a camera , *Learning how computers work with an expert, *Using a computer without going on the Internet, or looking at cars or how other things operate.

Have a good day :).

I had my first YT account at 11 when i got my first laptop, if you tell youtueb you're under 18 you can't access 'unstable material' for 12 year-olds anyway.

I guess I was too late to take part in this. I will watch, however.

this is very difficult to refute.....that is, unless someone challenges the definition of "okay".
