The topic of children’s media safety is more relevant than ever, particularly with today’s prevalence of advertising on websites, such as YouTube, that kids frequently use. This has been an active discussion in the news, and also with our fans. Mother Goose Club’s creators, Harry and Sona Jho, have been at the forefront of this conversation and they recently sat down to answer some of your questions and offer insight as both parents and creators.

What’s In the Works?

We’ll continue building upon these resources and lines of communication in order to be as accessible, informative and engaged as possible with our fans. So stay tuned for more candid videos and blogs, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Taking a Stand
On July 30, Harry and Sona took an official stance on this topic with a letter to the FTC voicing support for important changes the FTC wishes to implement, as well as concerns with their plan to get us there. You can read the full letter here. Harry and Sona strongly support privacy and believe that kids should, under no circumstances, be tracked. At the same time, there is a vibrant community of children’s creators supported by advertising revenue, so wholly removing advertising on kids’ content could have repercussions as well.
Additionally, on October 7, Harry participated in an important public workshop at the FTC in Washington, D.C. where he expressed these same thoughts and concerns. You can watch a full playback of the workshop here (Harry’s panel begins at 3:14:30).
