We've been dealing with stupid Internet challenges for over 10 years and this might be the worst of them. Cops are warning parents to be on the lookout for the 48-hour challenge. The challenge encourages teens to go missing for up to 48 hours and the more mentions you get on social media, the more points you earn.
According to WFSB:
Police say it is not only dangerous but could also tie them up while there are real emergencies.
Child psychiatrists say it’s never a good idea to assume your child knows better than to involve themselves in such an internet challenge.
