    Interesting that children are making millions of dollars doing anything. It raises a lot of questions that probably go beyond the scope of this discussion. The first one being do they let them keep the money? Or does it go to a trust fund or something?

    I still don't get why they are getting payed so much, and who is watching all of these videos on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok? I've read that 17 year old Charli D'Amelio is the highest paid TikTok star with $15 million dollar a year. I'm concerned about the future of our youth if they call this entertainment.

    Every time my family gets together everyone else is sitting there with their phone in their face watching TikTok. Nobody talks to anybody. So I am not surprised that some video channels are making millions on there or YouTube.

    BTW, I forgot to reply to this, but this sounds really bad! I have a big Indian family and luckily we do try to actually talk to each other without the need for those stupid smartphones.
