Well, in this particular section, you can set up the limit on mature content by blocking it. In the Xbox One, you have the authority to block or limit the mature content by using the Microsoft Family Group.

Managing the Xbox One is nowhere tough, and now you can easily set up the content restriction feature in the device.
How to Restrict Apps, Media and Games on Xbox One
To block the games and apps, it is mandatory to make a “Microsoft Family Group” and give that account to the person or child for whom you want to block the content. There are some additional controls available for a child account, which is easily manageable for the child profile on Xbox One.
After creating a child account, head to any browser and access the Microsoft Family Group. Slide down and look for the account that you wish to categorize for content restriction. Head to the “More options” and slide down a bit and choose “Content restriction” option.
You will be enabled to block the apps, media automatically based on the rating of age for the child. If the child is not appropriate for the content, so the setting of age restriction will stop the inappropriate content. In order to do this, just use “Allow Apps and Games Rated For” below the “Apps, Games & Media” section. Choose the age that you prefer appropriate for the account. Just one thing you need to remember is that it will apply on every content to the user of Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. You can take more detailed information for the different kinds of age and media once choosing the link of “View Allowed Ratings.”
You can also receive an outstanding request from the Microsoft Family Group on the front page. Now it will be up to you if you “Allow” it or “Deny” it. If you don’t have many details about the game, then you just have to click on the name of the game and you will have more details.
You are also allowed to block the previously downloaded game or apps through the “Activity” tab section of “Microsoft Family Group.”
