You can restrict the websites that children can visit, make sure
children only visit age-appropriate websites, indicate whether you want
to allow file downloads, and set up which content you want the content
filters to block and allow. You can also block or allow specific
websites. For more information, see Limit the content that children can view on the web.
You can set time limits to control when children are allowed to log on
to the computer. Time limits prevent children from logging on during the
specified hours and, if they are already logged on, they will be
automatically logged off. You can set different logon hours for every
day of the week. For more information, see Control when children can use the computer.
Games. You can
control access to games, choose an age rating level, choose the types
of content you want to block, and decide whether you want to allow or
block unrated or specific games. For more information, see Specify which games children can play.
Allow or block specific programs. You can prevent children from running programs that you don't want them to run. For more information, see Prevent children from using specific programs.

How Do I Make Sure YouTube is Safe For Kids Two words -- It isn't.
The best option to block unsafe content and adult videos on YouTube is to block the entire YouTube site on your computer using browser extensions, Windows hosts file or OpenDNS method. Your kids may know these tricks already, so make sure the user account he is using is not an administrator account.
You can always use alternative video sharing websites that are safe for kids. Some of them are listed below:
Kidstube -- The site consists of a large collection of educational videos, pets, animal videos, music videos etc. No unsafe video is ever allowed to upload.
Kidmango -- Kidmango is a video sharing website for small children who are below 12 years of age. The site features children rhymes, cartoon shows and other funny videos that your child will definitely enjoy.
ZuiTube -- This one consists of thousands of YouTube videos for kids that are safe. If your 6 year old kid is addicted to cartoon shows and comic characters, ZuiTube will fill the gap when YouTube is blocked at home.
Kidz Bop: Kidz Bop is another child friendly video sharing website that contains games, music, online contests as well as featured webshows, apart from regular entertaining videos that are safe for kids.
National Geographic: Last but not the least is the National geographic video channel which contains a good collection of educational videos for kids, animal videos, places of world interest and more.
Got any other YouTube alternative for kids ? Let's hear them in the comments section.
