Nowadays, kids are more attached to the mobiles, tablets or desktops to watch videos like rhymes, unboxing, animation, and comics, etc. Instead of playing in the ground, they are spending time to view the videos. They find watching rhymes, and puppet stories give more fun than any other. Here YouTube is the top social media platform to serve the kids with amazing video content. The YouTube Kids channel or Kids App are finding their best ways to entertain the children with unique and fresh content.
Also, most of the creators are crossing their limits to engage their channel with kids. Instead of providing kids content, they are merging the adult content, which can quickly spoil the children.
To filter such creators, YouTube has recently changed YouTube Kids channel rules for both the creators and advertisers. In the same way, it becomes a little bit harder for the creators, either small or big, to make money. But they are more responsible for YouTube brand reputation where it should have healthier, happier and no controversies.
Why is YouTube making significant changes to Kids channel video policies?

The updated changes on YouTube Kids channel will notify the parents that they are safe for kids, and they are featuring the content without violating the law.
YouTube offers massive entertainment for the kids. The Google child YouTube has faced controversies when it let the creators post the inappropriate footages with very few limitations, and these issues let it face the criticism.
