There is a new horrible challenge known as the "Momo Challenge," and while it's mostly believed to be a hoax, it's still very unsettling. The challenge got some traction this weekend when a Northern Ireland Police Department posted a photo of "Momo," saying the following:
This game conceals itself within other harmless looking games played by our kids! There has also been reports of parts of the game being viewable on YouTube
The character in the photo below is ‘Momo’ and when downloaded tells your child to communicate with them via WhatsApp and a number of other widely used apps. "Momo" then tells your child to self harm or she will put a curse on them!
Our advice as always, is to supervise the games your kids play and be extremely mindful of the videos they are watching on YouTube. Ensure that the devices they have access to are restricted to age suitable content.
There's a lot of theories on the craze, but the most important thing is to be aware of what your kids are watching. Click here to read more.
An extremely disturbing video was posted on Twitter of a song that Momo sings. If you would like to see the video, you can watch it below.
