Many Colorado residents are aware of the online video sharing platform known as YouTube. Users are able to upload and share videos on virtually any topic, which can then be viewed, downloaded and made use of by individuals around the globe. In a recent child custody matter, a couple has lost access to their five children after reports of inappropriate video content uploaded to their YouTube channel, which is known as DaddyOFive.
The online community reached out to Child Protective Services over disturbing content on the family's channel. In multiple videos, the parents are seen playing "pranks" on their five children. In some videos, a young boy is repeatedly brought to tears by his parents' actions. An example lies in a video in which the boy's stepmother pours invisible ink on the carpet of his bedroom, then calls the child into the room and proceeds to hurl profanity and accusations at him. The child tearfully proclaims his innocence until the parents let him know that the incident was nothing more than a prank.
