  • MOMO Challenge

    MOMO Challenge

    Last week you may have read or heard about a local and national news story regarding the “MOMO Challenge”, which allegedly depicts a scary image that pops up in YouTube videos and encourages kids to attempt dangerous stunts designed to hurt themselves or loved ones. Disturbingly, the reports also indicated that the image targets young people viewing these videos. Multiple resources state that evidence to support this claim is lacking, and experts regard it as a HOAX. However, we did want you to know that some students are aware of and talking about the situation. We want to provide you with links to some information that may help you to be up-to-date about this challenge and allow you to start constructive conversations with your children. Unfortunately, as our youths’ use of social media increases, every year these situations seem to arise with increasing frequency. Let’s turn the negative impact of this hoax into an opportunity to discuss with your children the importance of on-line safety. Moreover, encourage them to notify an adult about anything they encounter online that makes them feel uncomfortable, scared or unsafe. Please emphasize to them that The phrase “See Something, Say Something” extends to their online experiences as well.
