Momo Parents Guide
A recent social media challenge targeting children and young adults called ‘The Momo Challenge’ has caused recent concern throughout the country due to its disturbing nature and ease of access through common platforms that children are using. We have received worrying reports from parents about the challenge, which features a haunting female doll-like avatar. This game conceals itself within other harmless looking games played by children. There have been reports of parts of the game being viewable on YouTube Kids, Peppa Pig, Instagram, WhatsApp and Fortnite. The character 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. Children appear not to be telling their parents or carers as the character threatens the children that if they tell, their parents or themselves will get hurt. The recommended advice as always, is to supervise the games your children 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.
