We want to see the perfect videos, but why the age restriction? You must bear in mind that this exists to protect the minor from certain content that is not suitable for them and YouTube’s policies are very strict with some type of content that may be sensitive for them.
Although sometimes a video that is completely for children is restricted either by mistake or some error but there is an application for example Family Link which is a parental control application created by Google with which you can be more specific when filtering the content to they.
Another way to carefully select the content for children is to see all the channels to which you are subscribed and block the user or the YouTube channel in order not to see their content again.
