YouTube doesn’t have any parental controls or limits on kids pages. Google created a separate service called YouTube Kids for this reason. The YouTube Kids app only has kid friendly videos; no adult videos. Just like the YouTube app for Android TV, the YouTube Kids app is also available for Android TV Box.
