Sorry but no way to do that with standard iPhone and apps

Did find this but I do not recommend doing it.

You'll have to jailbreak the iPhone as per the link in the previous post as iOS does not have such a feature.  iPhones don't support multi-user profiles or locking specific apps.

The only other option is to put the phone app and other critical apps in a group and move them to a screen separated from the YouTube , game apps. This will prevent accidental activation but will not stop them browsing through your phone if they're determined.  It will also make it less convenient for your day-to-day use.

Ultimately the iPhone makes for a very expensive handheld toy for kids...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes I know that's why I did not recommend it

How old are your children?

Consider setting up their game/video, then enabling guided access mode, which can lock them IN a specific app.  Requires triple-click on home button and a passcode to exit.
