- You've probably heard of the Tide Pod challenge (yes they will poison people).
- And one would think that any kid above kindergarten age would know that boiling water, well, will burn them (OTOH many older kids don't seem to know this).
- Probably the dumbest of dumb challenges is the set yourself on fire challenge.
- In case that isn't enough, here are several more dangerous, viral challenges.
Besides warning your kids about the dangers of each challenge as they come up on the news, I'm not sure how to prevent such activities. It is well worth the effort, however, to explain why and how these challenges can be so deadly.
