A Parent’s Guide to the MOMO Challenge
The Momo Challenge has recently dominated headlines not once, but twice—first because it was supposedly linked to a 12-year-old’s suicide in Buenos Aires, then more recently because it allegedly began popping up in children’s videos online. But the second time, it became more complicated: Was it an actual challenge scaring children into harming themselves and others? Or was it made up in order to increase page views and interactions on social media?
This Guide seeks to wade through all the information currently available to help you make sense of the whole debacle and offers practical ways to address it with your children and teenagers.
