What Is The Momo Challenge & How to Protect Your Kids
Parents you need to be aware there is a dangerous new challenge targeting kids going around that you need to know about called "The Momo Challenge." This disturbing challenge asks kids to do dangerous things to themselves and continues to strike fear in parents across the country. The disturbing videos are being found on the "YouTube Kids" app that instructs children to do things like gouging their eyes and other harmful challenges and some children have died. Chris Kim of Crime Stoppers says taking the tablet or phone from your kids may not be the best solution to curb this problem. Instead, he wants parents to get more involved with their children's internet activity and social media use.
Parents do their best to protect their children online - but what happens when sites you've vetted are hacked? The UK's Mirror reports that the deadly "Momo Challenge" has hacked children's programming - appearing in the middle of YouTube Kids videos, Peppa Pig and Fortnite. The disturbing "Momo challenge" attempts to coerce children into performing dangerous acts that could hurt themselves or others.
