YouTube said that it will give parents of young children something they have sought for a long time: more control over which videos their kids will be able to see. 

In a company blog post, YouTube said that starting this week, it will give parents the ability choose to give their children access to a group of “trusted channels” as opposed to the entire swath of videos available on the YouTube Kids app. Parents will be able to turn off the search feature in the app, which will then only provide access to content recommended by the trusted video channels.
