My son had the neighborhood kids over for a sleep over (5 8-9 year olds). They all got on their iPads and started watching "savage" Jake Paul videos.

They can play video games into the wee hours of the morning, they can eat junk food, they can binge watch Sponge Bob, but there's no way in hell this Youtube filth or his brother are polluting these kids heads when they're in my house.

So, you got on the router and blocked Youtube?

Straight up blocking is a terrible idea.

Limiting the bandwidth to youtube to about... oh... 128kbps is the idea. You want them to see that it's actually loading so they don't catch on that it's you, not them.

Additionally, this is an excellent article on the freakishness that people are plugging their toddlers and young children into all day long.

And out of freakish curiosity, for a while if I saw a little kid staring at their iphone/ipad mutely and I had the opportunity, I'd sneak a look and see what they were watching. Very, very frequently it's this mixed up psychotic kids' programming. The last one I saw had spider man with wolverine style blades stabbing peppa pig repeatedly while other characters giggled in the background. The kid watching it was entirely slackjawed entranced. Not bothered at all.
