So I need help with my 11 year old nephew. He's convinced he's going to be the next rock star let's player in the same vein of pewdiepie and others.
Normally I would just let him have his dream like any kid his age but it's starting to have an effect on his school work. His attitude towards school has shifted into an, "I don't need to learn this junk because I'm going to be a millionare once my youtube channel hits it big."
I've tried explaining how youtube star is not a good carrer goal but it just all bounces off his head.
He's asked for a Webcam and other equipment to get started for xmas. His mom just thinks it's some weird hobby and plans on getting it all for him. I'm just worried it's jot going to be what he thinks and let's face it, the internet (youtube especially) can be very cruel when they see vulnerability.
How can I point him in a more down a more productive and realistic path.
