Kids and social media are a tricky combination.

On one hand, platforms like Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter can easily make children targets of cyberbullying, predators, or worse. But social media is a part of daily life for many kids today — depending on their age — and it can be a great way to foster friendships and self-expression.

Another upside of kids participating in social media is the prospect of making some serious cash.

On YouTube alone, dozens of youngsters across the globe are — with the help of their parents — creating videos, running channels, and raking in thousands or even millions of dollars a year.

Here are 10 YouTube stars of the next generation who are all 11 years old or younger with earning estimated between $400,000 to $60 million a year. All statistics come from the Social Blade YouTube data aggregator and are current as of writing.
