Parent Influencers In Illinois Need To Pay Kids Seen In Videos

Parent Influencers In Illinois Need To Pay Kids Seen In Videos
Jul 7 2024 Share

A new law that took effect on July 1 mandates that children featured on social media must be compensated for their participation.

The legislation updates the state’s Child Labor law to include children appearing on their parents’ or caregivers’ social media channels.

“The rise of social media has given children new opportunities to earn a profit,” Sen. David Koehler said in a press release after the bill’s signing last year.

“However, many parents have taken this opportunity to pocket the money while making their children continue to work in these digital environments.”

The law applies to children under 16 who appear in more than 30% of videos on monetised platforms, such as video blogs.

It stipulates that these children must receive 50% of the profits proportional to their screen time. The adult responsible for the videos must deposit the earnings into a trust account within 30 days, which the child can access at 18.

Family vlogs often share intimate details of children’s lives, such as grades, potty training, illnesses, misbehaviours, and first periods, with a wide audience.

Brand deals featuring popular child influencers can generate substantial income, but there are few regulations governing this “sharenthood” industry, which experts warn can seriously harm children.

Between 2012 and 2023, over 4,500 referrals were made to the Anti-Bullying Services, the Education Minister informed parliament on Monday.

Clifton Grima shared these statistics in response to a parliamentary query from PN MP Graziella Attard Previ.

Previ inquired about the number of bullying cases reported from 2012 to 2023, and the specific referrals made in 2023.

Grima clarified that although 4,611 referrals were logged during this period, this number does not reflect the actual count of bullying victims or perpetrators. In 2023 alone, there were 499 referrals.

Addressing further questions from Previ, Grima detailed that the Anti-Bullying Services team for the 2023/2024 academic year consists of five guidance teachers and two education support practitioners.

The minister highlighted that the staff conducts awareness sessions for parents and students, and offers training for teachers.

The Anti-Bullying Service, operating under the Educational Support Services, was established to address and manage bullying behavior within colleges.
