I understand that Google/YouTube want to 'protect the children' but there are better ways of doing it than this broad brush approach of deleting & demonetizing videos of channels that entertain kids.

I run 3 channels for tween girls & have had videos demonetized that have content about mermaids, slime & summer outfits. We get the odd mean, bullying comment but I spend a couple of hours each week deleting them from the review box & have done so for years & planned to keep doing so. We earn our revenue to keep doing these videos by monetization & YouTube are hurting the little guy (creators like us) with their sweeping generalizations aimed at pleasing big business while not actually making the world a safer place for kids, cause let's be honest every child has just as much chance of finding one of my kid's mermaid videos with the terribly dangerous tween girl's tummy's showing (sarcasm) as they do a jake paul video or a pop video depicting women in bikinis on a yacht.
By trying to make a statement to advertisers that they are not tolerating the possibility that a child predator MAY come & comment on one of our videos they are essentially punishing the innocent film makers for the existence of bad people.

Instead of demonetizing our videos they should use technology to make the comment system more sophisticated or actually identify the computers of actual predators & block them, not block us the innocent, hard working YouTube creators. Or they should use technology to detect 'actual' bad content, not 'we don't really know but just in case it looks bad' content.
