A San Antonio family has just lost their teenage son to the challenge. His sister reported that the boy, Jorge Gonzalez, was extorted into participating. He was told that his family would be harmed if he did not participate.
Schools are beginning to warn parents about increasing vigilance about their kids' online activities.
I say, "Do more than that". Sit down with your kids and let them know that if anyone threatens the family in order to get them to hurt themselves, they are to tell you right away. They'll balk, but do it anyway. You don't have to mention the Blue Whale Challenge because you know they'll seek out information about it.
We can't live with consequences.
Just do the best you can, Claudia
