Awesome app that stimulate creativity
My daughter has been using Gacha for a couple years, now aged 12 and just loves it. Yes, it not exactly intuitive but that’s part of the learning process, many apps aren’t intuitive but you learn how to used it anyways and the next app as a result is easier to learn etc...
Because of this app, my daughter has developed an aspiration to be a graphic artist, the pre built content has given her the confidence to create content while her drawing skills grow; learning to draw takes time and needs motivation, Gacha floats her boat!
Negative side to Gacha’s popularity; there are a lot of twisted people on this planet, much like a knife, it can be used to make wonderful food or terrible things and younger kids might not be able to make the right choice over what they watch on YouTube.
I was aware of this from the time I agreed to install it on her iPad as we don’t restrict Youtube. We had an open and honest conversation about how twisted and maladjusted people can be for YouTube content, the deal we agreed on, she was to tell me about any inappropriate content so we could discuss the content rationally; I’ve had discussion ranging from drugs to self harm and while uncomfortable at first, I’m now glad this is happening as it’s helping me, help her to be a more balanced young adult before she leaves home when I won’t be able to help her as life on a daily basis throws stuff at her...
If you are an open discussion parent this is a great tool that is supper fun and as a way to have difficult conversations they would never ask about if they come up at school, but through Gacha, it’s OK to talk about these teen issues... If on the other hand the idea of talking about how babies are made turns you green - Stay clear of Gacha as they will want to watch what other people have created with Gacha on YouTube.
A tool in its self is not bad, how we as humans choose to use it defines outcome.
