    I have 8 and 10 yr nephews that use my mac. 95% for youtube.

    Are there any setting or things you've downloaded so that they cant
    access anything else online ? also with youtube there seems to be alot of content that i would say isnt child friendly i.e swearing on minecraft videos although they tend to watch WWE wresting alot.
    I've already changed the setting on youtube to PG but that hasnt helped much.

    I use opendns that has very strong and flexible parental controls. Blocking sites at the DNS level means there's no work arounds if they're on your network.

    That of course doesn't help with youtube AFAIK, and some youtube videos do cross the line for young kids. I'm not sure what to recommend in that case.
