A Parents Guide to ClouCouture (Youtube Channel)

IMPORTANT: I have not watched every video on this channel, but I have watched several. This article was made to get a general feel of the channel, and probably does not record everything that is on the channel.

CloeCoutoure

Type: Lifestyle, Teenager

Video Types: CloeCoutore (real name Cloe Feldman) does various videos on challenges, DIYs, comedy lists, and just for fun lifestyle videos.

Quality

Acting and Composure: 3½/5 Above Average: The characters seem comfortable on camera with an outgoing, fun loving personality, whether it be Cloe herself or her friends and family. The acting ranges from well to poor depending on who is doing it and what they are doing.

Camera and Microphone Quality: 4/5 Well Done: The quality of the videos meets expectations for good quality Youtube videos, being clear, colorful, and free of distractions. The voices are easily heard, even in earlier videos and more freestyle ones.

Overall: 4/5 Well Done: The quality of the videos are up to notch, though I do think the topics range from interesting to boring, perhaps because I am no longer a preteen or young teenager. I believe girls would between twelve and fifteen would be the most interested in the channel.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 2½/5 Frequent Suggestive Clothing: Everybody does wear a lot of super short or low or tight clothing, see through shirts, bikinis, or just towels. On one video, Cloe is taking a bath and the bubbles (possibly accidentally) reveal that she is naked underneath and from her thigh to the bottom of her stomach can be scene, though nothing X rated can be seen. One video shows how to make a bikini, and at least one video shows a girl wearing various spice bottles on the breast part of her shirt. Lingerie sections of stores and mannequins wearing lingerie can be seen. A There is one video that talks about boobs. Kissing and crushes are talked about. There are videos done like a dating game show.

There are a few rare poop jokes.

Violence: ½/5 Light Violence: At least one video shows them having a friendly pillow fight.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 3/5 At least one video has the female “b” word written with only the “i” replaced with a “*” There is the occasional use of “hell” or “damn.” God’s name is taken in vain usually two or three times on average. One video cover about hate comments shows “f***” and “b*****” on the cover’s comments exactly as it is written here, with most of the word blocked out.

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 1/5 Some Emotional Content: Chloe does address in some of her videos her mother’s death and cancer battle.

Religious Issues: 2/5 Brief Mention: In one video, some girls go to a professional hypnotist and get hypnotized, though whether it was real or not is debatable. Chloe is Jewish (though whether it is race or religion, I do not know), and she mentions Islam at least once. There are several videos on Halloween costumes. Dracula is a costume recommendation.

Magic: 1/5 Brief Magic Mentions: Chloe talks about what she would do if she could see into the future. In a few videos, magic, unicorns, or media that includes magic, i. e. The Wizard of Oz, are mentioned or used for video purposes. Things such as “magic” and “potion” are used for descriptive purposes.

Others: Drugged brownies are mentioned at least once. Celebrities are frequently mentioned in videos, such as Ariana Grane, Taylor Swift, or Cardi B. There are also plenty of references and quotes from movies, TV shows, and memes, such as the Muppets, Mean Girls, and Monsters Inc. Videos usually have a dubstep or pop song, but there is the occasional rock song with drums. People dance.

Overall: While the overall topics of the channel seem to be aimed at preteens and young teenagers, I personally do not recommend a lot of them, specifically the If I Lived in and Halloween Costume series. The challenge videos are cleaner compared to the rest of them, so if I recommended any, I would recommend those to preteen and teenager girls twelve and older. Outside of this, though, I wouldn’t recommend the channel for its large amount of immodest clothing.
