Children today have mastered grabbing your phone and getting on YouTube as young as 2 years old. Technology has become something the young generation has continuously master while the older generation still struggle to adjust. ‘

Through all of the madness, one thing a parent is always working towards is protecting her child from anything harmful. So imagine a parents response when she noticed a video giving instructions on suicide on the Youtube Kids Platform.

According to CNN, after the parent shared the video with several other parents who flagged the video it was then taking down from YouTube, only to resurface on another video later than a week. The video shows a man demonstrating how to commit suicide through the silting of your wrist.

YouTube has responded to the parents concerns with releasing a statement:

“We appreciate people drawing problematic content to our attention, and make it possible for anyone to flag a video,” the statement said. “Flagged videos are manually reviewed 24/7 and any videos that don’t belong in the app are removed.
“We’ve also been investing in new controls 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.”
