If the rest of the family does not want to watch it, you could just remove it altogether. Highlight channel in the channel array, press * on remote, choose Remove channel. Now log into your account at my.roku.com and set a PIN and set it to be required when installing a channel.

It should be just below the purple toogle buttons.  I have never seen a Roku remote without the *

The earliest Rokus didn't have a * button on the remote and I believe when it first appeared it had an i on it, but none of those models are probably supported anymore and never supported YouTube.
