A note from our counselors regarding the Momo Challenge

Key points to remember:

  2. Let your child know that they should not follow along with the suggestions in the Momo Challenge
  3. Monitor your child’s social media, (especially You Tube), where this video is showing
  4. Let your children know that they can speak to you about things that make them feel uncomfortable
