Parents, YouTube Kids App May Not Be As Safe As You Think

Parents, YouTube Kids App May Not Be As Safe As You Think”

He then looks at the camera and says, "Remember, kids - Sideways for attention".

What's worse is, the video CAME BACK!

"I am disturbed, I am saddened, I am disgusted". Those actions included deleting the YouTube Kids app and forever banning it from the house.

The original video has since been removed from YouTube and YouTube Kids, but there's nothing stopping someone from posting another like it.

San Diego Padres keep Manny Machado in the NL West
He made a modest $34 million over six seasons with the Baltimore Orioles (and a half-season with the Los Angeles Dodgers ). But adding to the confusion, another insider - USA Today's Bob Nightengale - reported the White Sox are "out" on Harper .

She campaigned to have the clip removed but found this month that it had resurfaced on the site, apparently hidden in the middle of a cartoon.

Mom and pediatrician Free Hess posted the clip to her PediMom website and social media accounts. That cartoon was also later taken down, but beforehand, which you can view on the blog.

The YouTube Kids page says, "We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video - from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime;-), and everything in between". The YouTube spokesperson further added: "We appreciate people drawing problematic content to our attention, and make it possible for anyone to flag a video". She claims that every quarter YouTube removes millions of videos and channels that violate the company's code of conduct. In April a year ago, YouTube announced three new parental control features to give parents the ability to curate what their child is seeing on the app.

Andrea Faville, a spokeswoman for YouTube, stated in a written assertion that the corporate works to make sure that it's "not used to encourage harmful conduct and we've got strict insurance policies that prohibit movies which promote self-hurt".

In several of the videos in question, instructions had been spliced into gameplay videos of Nintendo's third-person shooter "Splatoon".

Hess encouraged parents to educate themselves and their children, and to speak up when they see something that could be unsafe to children. "There needs to be messaging - this is why it's not OK", Kaslow said. Vulnerable children, perhaps too young to understand suicide, may develop nightmares or try harming themselves out of curiosity, she warned.

Suicide tips stashed in otherwise benign cartoons are just the latest ghastly twist in.

The short clip is never at the beginning of the video, so it's hard to distinquish if a child's video contains the inappropriate content. She said she found videos glorifying not only suicide but sexual exploitation and abuse, human trafficking, gun violence and domestic violence. This chilling phenomenon has been referred to as Elsagate.

Hearn: AJ Will Fight Fury-Wilder Winner In 2019
The WBC suspended its planned purse bid because promoters for Wilder and Fury were closing in on a deal for a rematch. So there is always hope. "I can only fight who they put in front of me", he told a news conference.

YouTube Kids is supposed to be a safe place for children to grab a bit of screen time, maybe watch some "PAW Patrol", or sing along to "Baby Shark".
