Our young daughter has her own iPod and Fire tablet so a few months back we thought it made sense to set up YouTube kids for her to watch her favorite Disney, Sesame and Nickelodeon shows. It's YouTube for kids - what could possibly go wrong here right?
Well, it's very disturbing to say the least. There are some bizarre f'ing videos of people dressed up as superheroes doing inappropriate things to one another, videos of kids in borderline sexually suggestive situations, videos of kids being genuinely frightened and crying, videos of kids beating each other, videos of kids acting out adult situations, etc. To make matters worse, none of these videos are hard to get to as they come up frequently in the suggested videos section and there is no warning on any of them. I have no idea who is uploading this garbage, how YouYube is allowing these to be posted/does not take them down or who the intended audience is.
Have any of you actually seen the content that they allow on here??
