Momo Online Safety

Mar 1, 2019

Resource Families:

You have likely seen a number of stories in your news and social feeds about the dangers of something called “The Momo Challenge.” This usually accompanies an image of a grotesque head with warnings about children being encouraged to harm or kill themselves. Please review this very helpful info sheet by National Online Safety explaining the challenge, where kids are seeing this/what types of in internet sites it is popping up on, and tips for Parents.

Most important: TALK TO YOUR KIDS AND BE PRESENT WHEN THEY ARE ONLINE! If you have concerns regarding a child in your care, please contact your Social worker.
