Leading children’s advocacy groups along with child psychiatrists have once again issued a warning to parents about the dangers of their children taking part in a new online game called Blue Whale.
The warning comes as the rate of suicide’s amongst young children across Europe and throughout the world has risen in the past month.
The deadly and sickening game which encourages children and young teens to complete a number of challenges including a one life threatening task has led many youth workers to call on parents to monitor their children’s online activity.
According to leading child psychiatrists the so called game activity preys on vulnerable young children who believe they are actually part of a game but are in fact being deliberately targeted to put their lives in great danger.
The worrying rate of deaths from the game which has mainly occurred in Eastern Europe has led to child support groups both here and in the UK to issue a public warning about the game which is targeting children as young as seven.
