Parents are being warned about the latest trend on social media and online that could direct your kid to take their own life via videos that are even on YouTube.
It’s called the Momo Challenge and when children participate in the challenge, they contact a stranger concealing themself as "Momo" using a creepy image which encourages a participant to complete various tasks if they want to avoid being "cursed." Some of the tasks include self harm, which Momo asks the participant to provide photographic evidence in order to continue the game. Ultimately, the game ends with Momo telling the participant to take their own life and record it for social media.
The original image of "Momo" is actually a sculpture called "Mother Bird" by Japanese artist Keisuke Aisawa.
