Question by Victoria Roskoe: How can I convince CRAZY mom? YouTube video Making!?
Hey, I need help.
I always watch YouTube videos with these teenage girls and younger making videos of them doing makeup, morning routines, blogs, etc. Basically like a Shane Dawson type thingy…? How can I convince my mom to let me make these videos.
She says I will get kidnapped and she won’t let me show my face. WTF! Am I supposed to wear a burgalar mask over my face?!?!
Please help! Don’t go on my mom’s side, please! Don’t bother if you are going to say that…

Your mom sounds as neurologically paranoid as my own. A few suggestions I have are:
– Don’t use your real name. Make up a screen name for YouTube that you would feel comfortable with if you were to use it in videos, and if people called you this name on a regular basis.
– Don’t release personal information, such as location. If I were you, I wouldn’t tell which city/county I live in. State is up to you, or your mom really.
– Be careful when you talk to people. Don’t trust anyone you meet on YouTube too quickly, until you know you can be friends. Though of course, be nice! :]
These are just a few little suggestions. They may sound like utter killjoys, but they just may help sway your mother into giving you a little freedom!
