Videos on the Daddyofive channel, which has 759,000 subscribers, range from everyday vlogs to pranks of epic proportion - and the children are usually the ones being pranked. The controversial video, published on 12 April, shows the parents pouring ink onto their youngest son Cody's bedroom floor and then blaming him for making the mess. They swear at him angrily for making the mess and when he denies it, they accuse him of lying.

Cody then cries hysterically, along with his brother Alex, who is also being pranked. Some of the comments under the video claim that the pranks are abuse, while others say that the parents are exploiting their children for sponsorship and money. In the response video which addresses the criticism - called "blocking the haters" - the children strongly deny that any abuse has taken place. One of the sons, Alex, says: "I'm upstairs playing my game right now; how am I abused?"

In a statement on Twitter, Daddyofive said: "We discussed different alternatives for our future videos and ways we can improve. "We deeply apologise for your feelings of concern. We DO NOT condone child abuse in any way, shape, or form. "As many of our friends and family would tell you, we are a loving, close-knit family."

That is abuse. Children are not mentally prepared to cope with suddenly finding out something they were traumatised by was is in fact something they shouldn't be traumatised by. They're traumatised ...

ive been following this closely since  monday,  and its really iced up.

theres a video of the daughter being tormented, at one point she sits in the fetal position against the wall crying saying she wants to go home,  and as she says home they cut they audio for a few seconds,   a minute later the dad is yelling at her and says "do i need to turn the camera off"  .. she screams and begs for him not to..  

the fetal positiom is common in all the videos,  the curl up with a back to a wall and cry.

the kids flinch when their dad gets close to them, they show so many tells of abused children.

these parents need to go to prison,  now.

Glad that Philip DeFranco brought attention to this or otherwise, I wouldn't have known about this. These parents don't deserve to be near their children.
