"Sideways for consideration. Longways for outcomes".
Now, a pediatrician who hosts the mommy blog PediMom found short clips of a man telling kids the proper way to slit their wrists.
"I am disturbed, I am saddened, I am disgusted", the physician wrote.
"I think it's extremely unsafe for our kids", Hess said about the clips on YouTube Kids in a phone interview Sunday with The Washington Post. Those actions included deleting the YouTube Kids app and forever banning it from the house.
Hess stated that she doesn't believe that YouTube is doing enough to curate the YouTube Kids platform and protect younger viewers from adult-themed content.
When Dr. Free Hess - a pediatrician, child safety expert, and mom - reported the video, it was nearly a week before it was removed. That cartoon was also later taken down, but beforehand, which you can view on the blog. "We rely on both user-flagging and smart-detection technology to flag this content for our reviewers", the firm said in a statement. She claims that every quarter YouTube removes millions of videos and channels that violate the company's code of conduct.
YouTube also said there have new controls available for parents including the ability to hand pick videos and channels in the app. "We are making constant improvements to our systems and recognize there's more work to do".

When he tried to show up and play in the Week 17 game against the Bengals, coach Mike Tomlin refused the offer. Maybe a move to the NFC will get him to be much less of a diva.
Video promoting self-harm tips - spliced between clips of a popular video game - has surfaced at least twice on YouTube and YouTube Kids since July, according to a pediatrician and mom who discovered the video.
"For children who have been exposed, they've been exposed".
"We need to educate ourselves about all of these platforms and which ones have which types of risks", Hess said. Worst, it could even encourage children to try it out of curiosity. "Doki! Rainclouds New End!" and features a character narrating a suicide stating: "Why won't the world let me die?"
Suicide tips stashed in otherwise benign cartoons are just the latest ghastly twist in.
Mr Watson gave several examples of videos of innocent content created by children where paedophiles had shared links to child porn, time-stamped inappropriate moments in the videos, or made lewd comments. The videos Hess has found contain mentions or visuals of self-harm, suicide, sexual exploitation, trafficking, domestic violence, sexual abuse and gun violence, including a simulated school shooting. This chilling phenomenon has been referred to as Elsagate.
Talk with your children to make sure they let you know of anything inappropriate in the videos they watch so you can report them to the YouTube.
