YouTube is Creating a Dedicated Kids Website

YouTube has built a separate kids-only website in the wake of growing concerns about the platform showing disturbing videos to children. The video-sharing platform’s problem started getting widespread public attention after parents began noticing their kids were watching videos of Peppa Pig drinking bleach and Spiderman doing weird things with Elsa from Frozen.  The new YouTube Kids will have three separate settings for different age ranges. A preschool setting “is designed to allow kids to watch videos that promote creativity, playfulness, learning, & exploration,” a setting for ages 5 to 7 allows kids to also watch videos of cartoons, songs, and crafts.
