The Blue Whale Challenge is an online game that asks its participants to follow a social media account where they are asked to take up disturbing challenges. The game is believed to be the reason behind several suicides across the world. Unfortunately, it has made its influence in our country too. What is more disturbing is that a large majority of the users are teenagers.
We request all parents to take a closer look at their children’s online engagements and monitor their internet activity.
Please talk to them if they:
Are spending too much time alone
Are staying up very late
Are looking gloomy, dull, or sad
Are staying locked in their room
Have bruises, unexplained cuts on their body
Importantly, please ask them to not share any kind of messages participating in or promoting the challenge.
