This is a very important article for parents to read and understand fully.
The so-called “Blue Whale” suicide game sees a group administrator “challenge” participants to out-do each other by giving them challenges for a total of 50 days.
The challenges start off harmless such as “staying up late”, or “watching a horror movie by yourself” – but they soon to much more sinister and disturbing challenges.
Participants are told to self-harm and post images on social media. Other sinister challenges are to go missing for 72 hours and not tell anyone, including your family where you are. You have to leave your mobile phone and leave no note.
The worst of all, with reports of multiple deaths in America and even reports of attempts in the UK is as the 50 days come to a close, participants are “challenged” to take their own life by suicide.
Police in America and the UK have advised parents to understand fully the dangers of this so-called game and to advise their children immediately on steering well clear of any participation in the game.
It’s called “Blue Whale” because the aim is to have someone so incapacitated that they resemble a beached whale who dies from being stuck on a beach.
Authorities have advised parents in particular to know what their children are up to online and to share the information about this horrific game with their friends.
