A MUM has issued a chilling warning after her seven-year-old son told other kids they would be “killed in their beds” while playing the deadly “Momo” challenge. The sick suicide game has swept the web and is already believed to have caused the tragic deaths of two teenagers in Colombia. A Bolton mum has issued a warning over the deadly Momo challenge But there are fears the online challenge, which is played over social messaging platforms, has spread to the UK after a mum from Bolton posted a haunting warning. The parent, who hasn’t been identified, said she was “deeply alarmed” to discover her young son had been making threats to other children in school, MEN reports. After speaking with the youngster, she was horrified to discover he had been playing the Momo challenge, which features a creepy avatar of a woman with bulging eyes and long hair. The shadowy controller sends violent images to the victim over the messaging app and then threatens the player if they refuse to follow the game’s orders. ‘KILLED IN THEIR BEDS’ In her post, shared in the Love Westhoughton Facebook group, she said: “When I collected him from school the teacher asked to talk to me. “She said ***** had made 3 kids cry by telling them that ‘Momo was going to go into their room at night and kill them’. “When we got home I spoke to him about this and he told me that some kids at school had told him to look at the ‘Momo challenge’ which he did.” [boxout headline=”Momo – the killer suicide game”]Momo is a disturbing ‘suicide’ game that has spread through social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook. The sick game Momo begins with an avatar – a haunting image of a woman with bulging eyes and long hair. She sends violent images victims and then threatens the player if they refuse to follow the game’s orders. A 12-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy are said to have killed themselves after playing the Momo game on WhatsApp in Colombia last year. The Momo image itself was originally a sculpture created by a Japanese special effects company called Link Factory and displayed in a Tokyo fetish museum in 2016. [/boxout] She added: “When ***** watched a video the ‘momo’ character told him to tell everyone to fear Momo or it will kill him in his sleep. “So I have one very frightened little boy and some deep concerns about the kids in his school. “Parent controls are as tight as could be and this **** still slips through. So if you have a child it would be well worth it to open up a dialogue about idiots online and try to get ahead of this.” DEADLY GAME It is believed the game originated in a Facebook group and is now spreading around via messaging apps including WhatsApp. Players are apparently given challenges to do by the grim character ‘Momo’ which escalate, and finally results in them being challenged to take their own life. [boxout headline=”FOR KIDS: How to say no” intro=”It can sometimes be hard to stand up to your friends, so Childline offers the following tips on how to say no:”]1) Say NO with confidence: Be assertive. It’s your choice and you don’t have to do something which makes you feel unsafe or uncomfortable. 2) Try not to judge them: By respecting their choices, they should respect yours. 3) Spend time with friends who can say ‘no’: It takes confidence and courage to say no to your friends. Spend time with other friends who also aren’t taking part. 4) Suggest something else to do: If you don’t feel comfortable doing what your friends are doing, suggest something else to do. Any child worried about peer pressure or online worries can contact Childline on 0800 1111. [/boxout] [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] If they do not complete the challenges they are reportedly threatened with being cursed with an “evil spell”. The challenge has been likened to the Blue Whale viral craze from several years ago which set players up to 50 daily tasks involving self-mutilation and suicide. Blue Whale reportedly led to 130 suicides in Russia where the challenge is believed to have originated. [boxout headline=”FOR PARENTS: How to talk about peer pressure”]1) Create the right situation: Make sure you both have time to talk, the atmosphere is relaxed, and remember that this is a conversation, not an interrogation. 2) Listen: Avoid solely talking at them. Listen to their concerns and their experiences. 3) Acknowledge their worries: Dismissing their feelings will only shut down the conversation and make them reluctant to talk about what’s bothering them. 4) Help them practise ways of saying no: Rehearsing with them ways to stand up to peer pressure and coming up with alternatives for them will build their confidence. 5) Keep the conversation going: Let them know that they can always come to you if they have more worries, and take an interest in how they get on saying “no”.
