The Blue Whale Challenge is an internet based game that is said to have caused the deaths of 130 teens in Russia and now there are rumors that it is spreading to the United States. The game gives 50 challenges with the final challenge being suicide. With the heightened attention because of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, some fear that this game could further glamorize teen suicide. It is important that as parents are monitoring our kids on social media and are talking to them about subjects even when they are uncomfortable. I am including links to more information so that you can be up to date on the latest on this game.
