If your child is among the millions who are obsessed with Minecraft, you’re not alone. This ever-popular video game is captivating for kids and adults alike! Kids love it for the obvious entertainment reasons and parents love it because it encourages creativity, visuospatial reasoning and other skill-building.

When kids aren’t spending their free time playing Minecraft, though, many are watching how-to videos about it on YouTube. There are thousands of videos on this subject and they range in style, depending on what they’re focusing on. Popular videos can include:

  • Tutorials – showing players how to build new things within the game
  • Let’s Play – watching the YouTuber as they play the game, usually including commentary on strategy
  • Challenges – a contest to reach a specific goal between two players
  • Mods – showcasing recipes for “mods” or modifications

With all of these types of Minecraft-themed videos available on YouTube, a big concern of parents is knowing which ones are appropriate for your kids to view. Many gaming YouTubers are not creating their videos with kids in mind and that means that vulgar language and content may sometimes be included.
