West MI mother warns of ‘Momo Challenge,’ risky viral game

PSNI working with other police services to combat threat of Momo challenge game

Someone is setting these games up for kids to access, and play it.

"Momo" tells the children they will be "cursed" if they don't complete the dare and provide photo evidence, CBS reports.

The Momo challenge has been linked to more than 100 deaths of teens and children around the world.

Kardashian's warning comes as police in Ireland issued a warning on social media about the online game.

Police are warning parents to monitor their children's cell phone and social media use now that this challenge is beginning to gain traction again.

But Haslingden Primary School in Rossendale, near Blackburn, has posted a warning to parents on its Facebook page. Momo appears to be a classic instance of a "moral panic", wherein an imagined fear drives a frenzy of concern not based in reality.

The school said: "One of the videos starts innocently, like the start of a Peppa Pig episode for example, but quickly turn into an altered version with violence and offensive language".

The clip shows the viral picture of Momo, with a child's voice singing: "Momo, Momo, Momo is going to kill you".

"Our advice is to deal with any reports on a case by case basis and encourage parents to focus on positive behaviours online, such as critical thinking, blocking and reporting and telling an adult when you see something that makes you feel upset or distressed".

Schools in the Lowestoft area have warned parents about the challenge.

This image has now begun to pop-up in the middle of child-orientated YouTube videos such as Peppa Pig. "Please be vigilant with your child using IT, images are very disturbing". It is rapidly spreading across the world.

The police force also suggested the threat posed Momo game could be overblown and might be a way for hackers to exploit users.

Last summer, the "Momo game" aka the "Momo challenge" gained global recognition after the death of a 12-year-old boy from Argentina, when law enforcement investigated the influence of Momo as a cause of death.

She said she felt "sick to her stomach" when Bre-Andria told her about Momo's surprise visit in a video available on YouTube Kids.

In her post, shared in the Love Westhoughton Facebook group, she said: "When I collected him from school the teacher asked to talk to me".

Jessica Edwards first heard about the Momo Challenge Tuesday morning from her sister.

"Let them know she is not real, and harming yourself or anybody else will hurt and it's bad".

It is understood the "challenge" has now made its way to Britain after a seven-year-old boy in Manchester had become a victim of the harrowing game.

Momo initially cropped up on the internet in 2016, and in 2018 was used on WhatsApp as a suicide challenge.

'The key message for children is that if this image does appear then not to input any details'.

"Another video clip is going by the name of Momo which shows a warped white mask which is promoting children to do risky tasks without telling their parents".

The scary design originally featured at Tokyo's horror art Vanilla Gallery under the name Mother Bird.

A woman with black hair and bulging eyes, named Momo - really a model created by a Japanese special effects company - allegedly encourages children to undertake different "challenges", including self harm and suicide.

If you are anxious about your or someone else's mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider.
