How do I disable the background music on YouTube Kids?

The developers at Google had your sanity in mind when they created the YouTube Kids app. The app not only allows you to set a timer to limit the amount of time your child spends on YouTube, but you can also disable the background music and sound effects. Here's how:

YouTube Kids Settings

1. Tap the lock icon on the bottom right hand side of your display.
2. Enter the number displayed on the "Grown-Ups Only" screen.
3. Tap Settings.
4. Tap the Background Music and Sound Effects slider so they're OFF / White.

This will only turn off the music and sound effects when a child is on the home screen of the app. Audio and music on all videos will still play.
