This Crosstalk was a warning to parents regarding yet another attack on youngsters. At the core of this attack is a game that has some people so concerned, that even some school districts across America are issuing warnings about it.
The game in question is called the Momo Challenge. It’s the latest phenomenon that gets children and teens to concentrate on fear and death rather than life and righteousness. Players are said to participate through a messaging service called WhatsApp. Players receive instructions from a scary avatar to perform certain escalating tasks that allegedly can include self-harm and even suicide. The process is also said to involve threats for refusal to comply.
Jim presented details concerning this game from various news sources and Crosstalk callers weighed in with their views as well.
