I have a just turned 14yrold son with autism who likes to watch youtube but the videos have swearing in and I know I shouldn't stop a 14yrold from watching swearing but the only problem is he repeats what he hears from youtube and yesterday his stepdad kept on telling him to turn this certain video off and he said ok but he kept on going back to the video which ended in him crying and hi stepdad giving his iPad back and my son did go to a new video he also doesn't like youtube kids
