If you do not want to allow your kids to watch a specific video or an entire YouTube channel, you can check out this tutorial. Here is how to block a Video or a Channel on YouTube Kids. You can access this feature to make a better environment for your little kid even if you are using a YouTube Premium.
YouTube is a place where anybody can upload videos from across the globe. That works as an advantage as well as a disadvantage since many people misuse this platform very often. To deal with that problem, YouTube rolled out YouTube Kids, which allows parents to create a better and safe YouTube page for their kids. If you use this particular website, your kids can watch under-12 videos only.
Although YouTube uses strict regulations to filter all content on YouTube Kids website, you, as a parent, might not want to let your kids watch a specific video due to any reason. As different people have different thoughts on online videos, if you wish to prevent your kids from opening a particular video or YouTube channel, you can do that. As mentioned earlier, no paid subscription is required to get it done, but having a subscription could ditch all advertisements.
