How to get rid of disturbing and traumatizing “children” films on YouTube

If you have children, then you must allow them from time to time to watch some children films on Youtube.

They must have missed some episodes of their favorite series and you definitely can find them there. In any language you want.

Just search for “Caillou”, “Barbie”, “Batman” , “Elsa” , “Spiderman” or anything alike and you will get something. There is a huge market for “children’s” YouTube content.

But, what happens when the results are not for children?

 

How do you filter them? You can’t…

So, what do you do ? You ban them from using the tablet or Youtube?

This is a way, definitely, but children are becoming more and more interested in technology these days.I don’t think that this is the right solution.

 

Google has created an app called “Youtube Kids“. Unfortunately, it is not available in all parts of the world.

 

Android:

 

Apple iOS:

 

Countries supported

YouTube Kids is currently available to users in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Ghana, India, Ireland, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Tanzania, Uganda, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Zimbabwe. We’re working to expand to other countries.

So, No Germany, Romania and other countries.

 

Here is a way to be able to install it:

iOS:

You can create a new Apple iTunes account where you set the location to one of these countries above.

I created one on the website (click the link to go there) and I set the location to USA. Make sure you don’t enter a payment method because they will check the credit card.

After that, you will be switched to the USA AppStore and you can find the app.

 

Android:

You have to create a new account and make sure you set the country USA.

After that, you can go to Play Store and search for the app YouTube Kids.

If you don’t see the app mentioned above in the screenshot, then you don’t have the right app store set for your account.
