Why My Daughter Loves The YouTuber DanTDM

**I'm an Amazon affiliate member so the link for the book I mentioned is an affiliate link. However, it won't impact you at all if you click it. It'll just help me buy more books. I want the new Jodi Picoult. So thank you, if you click! I appreciate it.**



My daughter watches videos on YouTube. Probably too many. But sometimes Mommy needs quiet, so I allow it. We don't limit screen time unless grades are poor. The YouTubers she watches a lot of are CookieswirlC, Kelli Maple, Stampycat, PewDiePie, and her brother Tommy, of course. (You can check him out here. He makes gaming videos, plus videos on what it's like living with Autism.)

She also watches DanTDM. The TDM stands for The Diamond Minecart. Dan is a twenty-something from England who plays a lot of Minecraft. He doesn't JUST play Minecraft though. Natalie says she loves watching him play Roblox and Pokemon Go too. But there are many reasons why she loves DanTDM.








1. He makes great videos. Obviously tons of other people agree, because he has over 12 MILLION subscribers. Parents tend to like him because he doesn't swear in his videos.



2. She loves his pugs. He has two: Ellie and Darcie. I think it's why she wants a pug now. She thinks his are "too cute!"



3. His British accent makes Natalie smile.



4. He has blue hair right now. Natalie thinks this is fabulous.





5. He's easy on the eyes. I told her this once and she was all, "First of all, Mommy, you're too old for him and second of all, he's already married to JEMMA."



6. He wrote a book! I struggle to get my daughter to read, which pains me because I LOVE to read. I assumed each person I created would be bookworms, but nope. However, Natalie has been reading his book. It's written like a comic book, which means it's easy reading, and the illustrations are colorful. The book is called Traysaurus and the Enchanted Crystal.






If you want the book, you can buy it here.





To learn more about Dan TDM, you can check out his social channels! (And nope, this is NOT a sponsored post, my daughter just really wanted me to write why she loved Dan on my blog. She's hoping Dan notices this and will say hi.)

  16. As a YouTuber myself, I love that she's into Dan TDM. My son watches YouTube all day (gamers mostly) and as long as his grades don't suffer, he can watch it all day long. I do think monitoring what they watch is essential though because come of the language can get inappropriate for our little ones. Nice post. So nice that you wrote that for your daughter ;)

  18. This is awesome, it's good to see your daughter has found a positive influence she follows on youtube. The internet can be a very scary place for children. I love the pictures, she is beautiful.

  40. I'm that odd person who can't stand YouTubers... No matter how much people like them I just find them annoying. Not that they don't have good videos or anything like that, they just usually have quirks that I can't get over or their voice annoys my brain....
