Disable Parental Controls, and consider using OpenDNS for your web filtering instead. It's free until you need more advanced features.

Do be mindful, if this is for restricting family access to YouTube, many schools are starting to switch to Google Drive and what not for student files and for sharing lessons. Videos uploaded by the teachers to Google Drive will be blocked, since the vidoes are served off of the YouTube infrastructure.
