Hello,

I am a 7 years old girl passionate about mountain biking and BMX. I do some competitions, but my favorite part is taking my bike and going to have fun in the forest ...

Here is one of my videos, hoping that you like it ...

 @scott-townes: Hi ! I'm Chris, Tya's dad.
Obviously, you have a big problem with children and social media...
If that can reassure you, Tya manages his bike and only his bike.
When it comes to social networks, it's his mom and I who take care of it.
We tell her the most interesting comments, and she gives us her opinion on these comments...
Today, Tya does not have a tablet, no computer, no phone, and has no access to any of these devices. It is a very balanced child, who prefers to play in the garden, coloring, and ... Ride her bike !

 @Poupouille80: That's great however you don't see how strange it is pretending to be your child on social media? That's just as f*cked up. You need to seriously reevaluate your roles as parents. How about being normal people and posting up an edit stating, "this is my child, she's ripping it up!"

This is beyond creepy and pathetic. But hey anything to force your child into the public sphere without her really understanding what's going on so you can live vicariously through her "fame". Just horrendous.

Yup, all the good parents I know love to make pedophilia references as well as insults akin to pre-teens.... that's not creepy or weird at all.

 @Poupouille80: Google exists bud. The only one that's disturbed is daddy taking advantage of their 7-year-old child by pretending to be their child through social media without that child's consent or understanding of how her daddy is taking advantage of her. You really need to see a therapist. This is seriously messed up.

 @Poupouille80: yay the patricians have finally figured out child rearing. Oh joy cant wait for the simplistic flaunts towards their own more dignified behavior. Surely if we all had what they had we could all be dignified, but while they have it ours will be robbed while their children become the paintings of platos cave ahead of their time to fade quick and rapid and as their vapid adolescence takes over. Gee sure am happy the patricia,s are looking out for me today by micromanaging their daughter as a niche sport child celebrity. Next time wear a helmet and save us all if you please and thank you.

Also yeah dont listen to anybody dont even listen to yourself just tell them they all must be wrong cause you wouldnt have said it or ever thought you and you alone will ever have the conch (thats a lord of the flies reference Wink ) that way with no need for any glasses and no point to ever expose us or your daughter again, whew. You wont mismanage her young impressionable mind and we wont be able to weigh in on it either. But wait what are you doing dont read this dont think of it dont even glance there is no need for one as high as you to seek peer review or blasé feedback from a crowd of amateur plebs what do we know. Burn this message adopt a new aesthetic of a blindfold and leave the oitside world youvve always sought validation from but they always held it from you they never gave you the honor you deserved so you blinded yourself to them to show them that they never treated you the way you know you should be and now you wont have to look upon our unseemliness. :p poo poo and I fart in your general direction

 @scott-townes: Common senses tells that it is not child posting to that FB page... continue to believe you know best on how to raise everyone's child. Maybe you should just focus on yourself and possibly your immediate circle. If they turnout better than the rest of us, then you should write a self help guide for all of us lost parents. The world will be a better place because of you and you can post that all over social media!!!
  • 6 6
 @dc40: Step 1: Don't pretend to be your 7-year-old child online by creating a permanent profile she doesn't understand and doesn't have the capacity to realize it can never be fully erased. Be a normal person and if she wants that shit posted online, she will allow it.


That seems like a reasonable step, don't ya think?

 @Poupouille80: Take my advice seriously. You will never be seen as a good parent to everyone. Especially Pinkbike. You do you and enjoy your time with Tya. You can read the comments on our recent post for Crosby. You will never enhance your life reading the comments from strangers. I fully endorse what you are doing. Love seeing the family on bikes and without social media I would never be able to see your story. Keep it social media for as long as you want. Ignore the haters.

 @scott-townes: Step 1: worry about yourself; step 2: if your advice is not seeked, then go back to step 1.

Honestly, if the FB page is displaying positive content... I don't see an issue.

Again, the site IMO doesn't portray him as pretending to be his 7 yr old child online... go look at his page.

No, no make an edit put it before my eyes so i can see your emotional stability entirely dependent on a third party online conversation and tell me more how we all i had a say of being exposed to your petty attempt at making an ally towards quickly getting over the fame card and socially engineering a demanding c*nt of a child that everyone else will have to deal with once youve finally convinced them to have fun in a condemned college with your dime while we all are glad for a non fascist aesthetic and meal. While were at it can someone please give me the phonics to this childs name? I hope the end is swift and your emotional stability is completely uprooted by your lack of access to a worldwide internet. And put back into those,you order about and speak vocally with each day.

 Nothing better than to watch a few people freak out about a child riding a bike. Holy shit. Do you even have kids? Or are you one of those people who go "when I will get kids, I will never..."

Clean your own shit before you give it to others.
  • 4 1
 @WAKIdesigns: From what I've seen no one is freaking out about anyone riding a bike or anyone filming it. She rips by the way and it's awesome she's got the opportunity.

Some guys are just mildly cringing about a grown ass man going online and pretending to be his daughter (dude literally went on the women's forum on PB and posted "hi, I'm a 7yo girl" ffs). Someone in this thread was wandering why no one whinged about Jackson Goldstone's videos - maybe exactly because his parent's aren't f*cking weirdos and just said "look, our son is unusually good on a bike, here he is, riding". No pretending he was posting that, no begging for likes, FB clicks etc.

But hey-ho, not my circus, not my monkeys. I know nothing about raising kids and will never tell any parent how to do it, just wanted to point out what it was that made some view this post as absolute creep central. I honestly do not give a flying f*ck about some random dude's child's welfare, only looking at this from the point of view of an adult's online behaviour typical of types most would not want to associate with.

Since I'm one of those a-holes who dare to "not even have kids" (which obvs makes me a subhuman to anyone with diaper brain disease like our French friend Chris here), I'll ask the expert, and I'm not being sarcastic, looking for an honest opinion of you as a father: what's your stance on parents plastering their kids all over FB and insta before they can make their own conscious decision about being present and traceable online? Talking about both posting kids' pics on parents' profiles and creating "the kid's profile" (essentially fake). And for my education's benefit let's take prodigies like Jackson or some young supermusicians etc. out of your answer.

A good few of my close friends who have kids (coincidentally the ones I considered to have a healthy approach to life in general before they procreated) ensure their social media is free of their kids' faces, but happy to hear a different opinion as long as it's reasonably articulated and not coming from Chris AKA Poupouille who's just gonna tell me I was abused as a boy and didn't get a bike for X-mas for asking a simple question (I guess that's what discussion with a 7yo girl looks like and he's taking this roleplay seriously).

And for the record, despite being a childless, blood-sucking monster I consider my shit mostly squeaky f*cking clean.

 @bananowy: "what's your stance on parents plastering their kids all over FB and insta before they can make their own conscious decision about being present and traceable online?"

I want my two kids to be able to make their own identities if/when they so desire, preferably after they leave the house. They have no FB or IG and as far as I know, have no identities on those platforms or any other strictly 'social' ones at all. Some of their activities/sports use FB as a platform for news and announcements and also use kids' photos in promotions, which makes me crazy.

To each their own. Lots of people - including many of my own friends and family - don't think about the longer-term effects of this stuff on their kid's lives.
  • 3 1
 @bananowy: well since you don’t have kids then you have no clue what you are talking about. And since you are so righteous in your tone, if you ever get kids (and many say they don’t want them, women saying that are hilarious) you are a perfect candidate for being super protective of them and super aggressive whenever even mildly accused of parental misconduct. You know, hipsters and hippies that I’ve been meeting on playgrounds when my kids were little, were the angriest and most judgmental f*ckers of all. Folks in outdoor clothing looking like they just crossed Norway on foot and 2 bottles of water. Posing to be chilled out, loving and integrated with nature, progressive but judgmental shit was flowing from all orifices in their bodies. A Nordic equivalent of Polish deeply religious fat white trash, folks full of ideas on how everyone should live their lives. So yeah, come back to me after you yourself are challenged on how you raise your kids. Tell me how thoughtful you will be.

 @WAKIdesigns: "since you don’t have kids then you have no clue what you are talking about" - why exactly do you feel the need to repeat the exact same damn thing I just said about myself and think I'll take it as a criticism Big Grin I asked a question specifically because I have no clue and want to get clued up. @twozerosix was able to answer without getting his panties in a bunch, so what bit you?

Where is my tone "righteous"? Why so sensitive?

When/where did I ever say I don't want kids? I literally only said I don't have them now.

Where did I say ANYTHING at all about parental misconduct and what exact psychoanalytical tools make you think I would be overprotective? I very specifically said anyone's kids' well-being or anyone's parenting choices do not concern me one bit.

Hippies? Where did that come from? Don't know any, never been one.

Where was I telling anyone how to live their lives? Remember the part where I wrote, quotation: "I know nothing about raising kids and will never tell any parent how to do it"?

Not sure what to say to the whole rant about people in clothes you don't like or of socioeconomic backgrounds and nationalities you don't like 'cause that seems like irrelevant frustration-venting.

But anyway, back to the topic. As a clueless, childless, but curious dude, my question still stands and I will appreciate any insight from parents similar to what @twozerosix provided. Not sure why you ever thought I was "challenging" you or anyone on their parenting. I very clearly stated I was genuinely interested in your opinion as you have experience in the matter and I don't. Why you got all offended is honestly beyond me, but please remember your insecurities are not my fault.

I am still very much open to reading your opinion re my original question if you would like to answer. If you don't want to, fair play - I appreciate it can be a delicate topic for you.

 @oldmanjoe: And yet, every study out there suggests otherwise.. Keep your kids off social media, its as simple as that. Its absurd parents are willing to expose their children at such a young age to something that will damage them for life because they want their kids to be famous or because they give in to their kid's demands. Here are just a few sources backing this up.

I think its awesome to see a parent making an edit of their kid shredding but its clear this article was composed by the parents as an attempt to promote their kid on social media. This is disgusting.

And @Tacodip420 - as a parent, I would think the last "joke" or insult you'd refer to is pedophilia. That speaks volumes about who you are as a person. But yes, keep on forcing your child to be promoted on the internet for random people to view and obsess over. I'm sure that's very healthy for her development. Good lord.

 @scott-townes: I did read a few of them. A lot of overlap of content: Cyber Bullying, Depression, stalking, safety, etc... There is a lot more plays into those issues that tied to home quality life and self confidence of a child. Does internet/social media compound that and make easier to exploit, yes... but as parents you need to educate and teach your child to be aware of the dangers. I do believe parents need to be more engaged with their child and control technology access and/or content based on age.

Not sure how you can come to the conclusion and/or measure negative impacts on his child or even that he is taking advantage of her. If I saw child FB page like Poupouille, I would assume it was the parent managing the site... to me it's common sense. Looking at the FB post on that site, you can tell it's not a child posting and/or responding. I see the page as a tool for resume/marketing/sponsors. I may see it different because I was a kid growing up racing motocross... we were always trying to get sponsors to offset cost, even at that young age. As long as parents is keeping it fun for the child and pressuring them to do it for expense/pleasure, I don't see an issue..

 @scott-townes:
Ever since people have been communicating through computers, they have been nasty to one another via the same. Back in the 1970s, computer scientists chatting in the first electronic discussion boards noticed that when they talked to one another virtually there was “an escalation of critical comments, and an increase in the frequency with which people would respond with short negative messages,” The scientists called these exchanges the “flame wars,” making them the first documented instance of jerky behavior online, but hardly the last.

Flash forward some four decades and our behavior hasn’t improved. Sherry Turkle, Ph.D., a psychologist and professor at MIT has found, based on hundreds of interviews with people over 15 years, that “we allow ourselves behaviors online we never would in person” and that these behaviors have consequences beyond the online realm. “We do things online that hurt and damage real relationships: We’re curt with people we work with; we’re aggressive with people in our families; we bully people we go to school with.”

Is it possible we’ve all just devolved into self-centered misanthropes who can’t even be bothered to rustle up a little respect for one another? Or is there something about turning on a computer, running our hands across a keyboard, and hitting “post” or “send” that changes how civilized we are when communicating with others? Experts say it’s the latter. What’s more, they say our behavior is understandable, and that we can change it.

And it’s literally in our best interests to do so, because here’s the kicker: Being negative actually hurts the perpetrator more than it hurts whoever is on the receiving end. Let negative feelings run rampant, and you risk damaging not only real-world friendships or your social standing in online communities, but also your physical health long term. On the flip side, psychologists say that learning how to dial up the good vibes and play nice online may help you feel happier, improve your health, and make you feel more connected to others. And isn’t that what this whole Internet revolution was supposed to be about?

Personally this video warms my heart. Tya is having fun and enjoying the outdoors with her family. I've worked on cycling programmes with primary school aged children for 10 years and know first hand how having a blast on your bike does absolute wonders for self confidence & helps develop decision making in children of Tya's age.

Thank you for this message much more constructive than the waves of bitterness of some.
I take the conclusion for an encouragement to continue, to the delight of Tya ...

 Was quite weird reading through the critical comments. Jackson Goldstone obviously didn't post his 1st video, which I understand is the most viewed on the Pink Bike server.

Nice edit, she's good, especially for a 7 yr old girl (and I don't mean that in a negative way).

All parents should be getting out to ride with their kids. Take video's as they grow up fast.

 @Lolo-the-frenchie: Je ne pensais pas qu'en mettant cette vidéo en ligne il y aurait autant de commentaires.
Forcément, comme dans tout, il y a une proportion de déchets...
Mais j'ai effectivement l'intention de continuer aussi longtemps qu'elle prendra du plaisir à faire ça.
Ma seule motivation est son plaisir, n'en déplaise aux orageux. Sa sécurité est une évidence... Merci à toi Wink
