Social Media Apps Provide Porn and a Big Blue Whale that’s Killing Our Kids.

Have you heard of the Blue Whale Challenge?

No?

Stop what you are doing and Google it.  Better yet, get on your Instagram and key in #thebluewhalechallenge.

Be prepared, this game is being blamed for over 100 suicides in Russia and the UK.

It’s made its way to our shores and recently claimed the life of a 15 year-old  Texas child.

It’s time you learn what it is, how to prepare your child, and ways to combat the toxic stream that’s flooding social media.

A Big Blue – and, Apparently, Deadly – Whale

The Blue Whale Challenge is an online game that challenges contenders to a series of daily challenges over a period of fifty days.  The daily challenges all trend toward toxic and extreme.  Your son or daughter may be challenged to do any of the following:

  • What a horror movie,
  • Self-mutilate,
  • Wake up and strange hours,
  • Cut your lip,
  • Go to a roof, sit on the edge with your legs dangling over the side,
  • Take your life

Parents of the deceased teens report no noticeable signs of suicidal behavior.  In other words, this is creeping up on families and catching them unaware.

Here is what you can do:

  1. Ask your child if they’ve heard of the game.
  2. Inform your children to be wary of any hashtags that include the words blue whale challenge.
  3. Communicate with an adult, if friends are involved in this game.
  4. Have complete access to your child’s social media apps – particularly Snapchat (apparently, a blue whale favorite) and Instagram.

For the remainder of this post, I am going to alert you to the vast amount of pornographic material that’s available through every online gaming device in your home.

The material is sneaky, catching both kids and parents unaware!

Gaming and Porn

A few years ago, Singapore based game publisher, IGG, saw their annual revenue jump over 200%. Their popular Castle Clash accounted for nearly 80% of the jump.  What you may not realize it that kids who play this game have access to thousands of other games, for free.

Dozens, possibly hundreds, maybe thousands (the number is too high to count), of those other games are explicitly pornographic.

All of the games are free.

All of the games are easy to download and disguise.

Parents never have to know.

The global gaming industry is one that’s been teen-friendly (as a distributor of porn and exploiter of our children) for decades.

IGG-games is no exception.

In fact, parents, you need to know that IGG offers porn to your ‘gaming-child’ for free. 

Yes, they offer games like Honey Select free-of-charge, to children of ANY age.

Others titles (again free) in their library?

  • Porno Studio Tycoon
  • Drunken Robot Pornography
  • Bad Ass Babes
  • Beauty Bounce
  • Beach Life: Virtual Resort: Spring Break
  • Detective Masochist (Yes, you read it right)
  • Nefarious (as sickening as it is, an “adult” edition featuring anime characters designed to look like preteens)

Some of the games even offer dating advice to your six-year-old.

And all of it’s free.

IGG, short for I Got Games, is a rapidly growing publisher of mobile online games with an astounding global influence.  This group of investors is intentionally poisoning our children.

What can you do?  Monitor your child’s online and electronic activity!

I recommend that you, with the help of your family members, develop a family wide action plan!

Develop an On-Going Action Plan

Make some decisions regarding technology and how and when you will use it in your home.  If your son or daughter has a smart phone, then you will need to establish a baseline of acceptable behavior that will protect them from the industry’s reach.

Some things you might consider:

  1. Using a filter on all devices.
  2. Check ALL history daily. When history is deleted, there will need to be consequences.
  3. No screens behind closed doors. For example, no televisions, smart phones, tablets, or computers, etc. behind closed doors, such as bathrooms and bedrooms.
  4. Have access to all passwords and usernames that your child has selected.
  5. Friend or follow your child’s activity on apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, etc.  I promise, it’s not the end of the world for your child’s social life (which in and of itself, is a peculiar creation of the modern digital age).   It’s only the most negligent of parents who are not following/friending or  – at the very least – actively involved in their child’s online presence!

These are just a few suggestions that we’ve used in our home.

You will need to establish some ground rules that work well within the preexisting flow of your family.  No ground rules, however, is sure to lead to porn consumption, if not all-out addiction.  Smart phones are pocket-sized perversion centers, and the porn industry both knows and exploits this reality thousands of times a minute.

Silence and a failure to develop a technology-use plan is akin to aiding and abetting the porn industry and its toxic cousins.

Disrupting To Renew!
