BELINDA JENNINGS – MOMO
There’s a disturbing cyber threat circulating online called the Momo Challenge, targeting young kids and encouraging them to do some really crazy things.
This sick prank is infiltrating social and gaming platforms and encouraging young children to self-harm.
The internet is divided as to whether or not Momo is actually a hoax or if it’s real, however there seem to be a lot of localised claims of parents whose kids have seen this freaky looking face and many whose children are genuinely upset having seen it while online.
If anything, it brings forth a strong opportunity for parents to have honest conversations with their kids about the dangers of online, predators and the importance of creating a safe place for kids to come forward should anything untoward arise while they’re online.
