Although there may be some exceptions, it is not true.
Twitch streamers are known to swear and female streamers can often be seen wearing inappropriate clothing or posting suggestive content. As are stream chats, many male streamers make crude comments or discuss lewd topics. While some streamers may mark content for mature audiences, there’s nothing stopping a child clicking on it. There are no age verification measures.
Many games can also be slasher-, horror, and gore. The battle royale game may seem quite calm, but the skins can be very visible. Twitch streams a lot of violent games and these are getting more graphic.
Is there a Twitch channel that my child can watch?
It is possible to find child-friendly channels. The fact that a streamer plays Mario Kart and Pokemon doesn’t mean the channel is child-friendly. It doesn’t matter which main game the streamer is playing, the parent should watch what is being shown before giving their kids access to any other channel. There’s also the possibility that streaming streamers might switch between different games in midstream. They may have different opinions about what is appropriate for children.
How can I ensure that Twitch Channels are Kid-Friendly
This is best done by asking the streamer in chat. Some streamers will accommodate children, but others won’t. Ninja, for example, is a streamer who tries to keep their channel safe, but they can’t control the chat, and sometimes they have “adult hours” that could be problematic in other times zones. It is important to check Twitch regularly to ensure that your children are not changing channels or that their stream remains on the right track. Reddit’s Twitch forum allows you to consult other Twitch users and ask for recommendations. There are plenty of other parents who care about your children, and many have done their research.
There are always predators on every internet platform. It is therefore a smart idea to keep an eye on your kids’ internet activity. The same applies to online gaming.
