Question about Computers & Internet
I want a youtube account but my mom won't let me because she says it's not safe is there a way I can make it safe?:-)
Yes, the YouTube account is attached to your Google account and safe search settings can be applied. If she's concerned with you being harassed or bullied online then there are settings to block or ignore users and also to report them.

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.
