Making Momma Proud

‘The Little’ ventures off to become ‘Kid Friendly’


 

After two amazing years of traveling to places inspired by books, film and TV, ‘The Little’ takes on an adventure of his own, Kid Friendly. At just six years old he’s launched a YouTube channel made for kids by a kid featuring gaming walkthroughs, toy & candy reviews, TV & film reviews, kidventures and interviews of grown ups with really cool jobs. And mommy couldn’t be more proud.

The Little, now to be known as ‘Kid Friendly’ has always been tenacious. Even as a toddler, he went after everything he wanted no matter what the effort. Of course this wasn’t the most delightful aspect of his toddlerhood, but I knew with the right target it would prove to be a quality most wish to have. Now, watching him work so hard for his launch, I can see he will be as vigilant now as he was then.

The Birth of Kid Friendly

It all came from a funny story actually. Being an only child to a blogging mom, he’s learned how to entertain himself when the time calls. Often this is while we are at home between press trips (a completely different daily lifestyle than when we are in the field working), but it can also be while on trains or in airports. In this case, he was watching Minecraft YouTube videos. I had checked them before and approved. He loves Minecraft and the videos are tutorial…. or so some of them are.

I was approaching his room one day when I overheard a bunch of screaming and yelling, then profanity. It was the host of a Minecraft walkthrough on YouTube! I couldn’t believe this! It was outright obnoxious! That’s when I started investigating more and more of these videos. I couldn’t believe the garbage, even sexual in nature, related to Minecraft. I went on a mission to find appropriate kid content on YouTube.

I found loads of unboxing and candy reviews, many done by adults, tons of gaming walkthroughs, and a few personalities. Then it clicked! I asked him what he thought about starting his own channel for kids by a kid, and the rest is history.

Growing up as a child in the 80’s the only thing I had to rely on for career guidance was my own mom. There was so much more knowledge beyond the scope in which I was taught. Now, with social media and reality TV there’s a lot more awareness on careers. kid Friendly aims to build on that awareness by interviewing grown ups in really cool careers, allowing them to share their inspirations and thoughts with children on how to have a career like theirs when they grow up!

  6. […] So Gauge (AKA Kid Friendly) was uber stoked to get his 3.0 Twilight of the Republic Play Set. He found it pretty simple to load the game into his PS4 and get started. May I just say, I watched him hold a very heavy interest in this game for 3 solid hours (until I kicked him off because video games fry your brain cells JOKES)! But seriously, he was all in. The last Infinity he had (still has) sat in his drawer until this came out. He only played it a few times and wasn’t really into it. […]
