YouTube Restricted Mode is Blocking Our Videos…

They say bad luck comes in threes, so hopefully YouTube will leave our channel alone for a while now – after having all our comments disabled over the weekend, then having all of our upload defaults removed, we’ve now discovered that our videos are being hidden behind restricted mode for some users – which basically means you have to be logged in to YouTube to be able to watch our videos, and if you have restricted mode enabled, you won’t be able to watch our content without turning it off. This doesn’t seem to be happening to everyone (yet) and we’re not sure why it’s happening either. It could be the next step following the disabled comments issue, or it could be unrelated to current problems at YouTube and be a new example of the YouTube algorithm considering autism a dirty word, but either way, if you’re experiencing problems watching our videos on YouTube, remember we also upload the vlog to Facebook every day, with the same 5pm release time.

All of this confusion over the future of YouTube is also leading us to take a closer look at brand deals on the channel, something we’d appreciate your input on, and in more positive news, Andy is now genuinely excited about going to school (and loves his after school club), the weather is still brilliant and the gym is going well – we just wish YouTube wouldn’t put a downer on everything…

Hello folks and welcome to The Chapman Family! We are Kevin (dad), Anna (mum), Lucy (age 16), Andy (age 14), Amy (age 12) and Dave (around 35 in dog years).

We’re daily family vloggers with new videos out at 5pm every day UK time. We vlog about our daily lives, including life as an autism family (Andy is autistic) and lots of nerdy stuff because we just can’t help ourselves!

We’d love to have you join us on the road to 100K and share our journey with us! Hit SUBSCRIBE and don’t forget to TURN THE NOTIFICATIONS ON!


When Kevin left his full-time job as a Computer Science teacher in July 2017, Anna was trapped in our house by our son Andy, who is autistic and had refused to go to school for 18 months. Our daughters Lucy and Amy and our dog Dave hardly saw him because he was always working to try and solve all our problems! Today we’re full-time content creators and Kevin is always at home when the kids get home from school (all our kids!) and Anna has been able to return to university. This channel is the story of my family’s ongoing journey as family vloggers! Previously known as lollujo Vlogs and Kevin Chapman.
