Recently parents have been alerted to a video popping up in YouTube videos called the Momo Challange. People who have seen it are saying Momo is telling kids to do harm to themselves with threats of violence if they tell anyone. The video is allegedly popping up in kid videos on Youtube and some have even reported seeing it in games.

Now other reports are coming out calling the whole thing a viral hoax... So which is it? The origins of the challenge started with the WhatsUp App where people received the messages with the video in it. I've seen countless reports where people claim to have seen Momo so regardless if it started as a hoax it seems to have turned into something real.

This goes to show yet again it's very important for parents to always know what your kids are doing online and communicate with them the danger of the internet! Have you seen this challenge pop up in videos? Let us know!
