Division asking parents to monitor child's internet usage


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The Brandon School Division is asking parents to supervise their kids internet habits after an internet hoax .

The "Momo challenge" hoax has been circulated online and is said to be a game that can be accessed on Facebook, Whatsapp and other social media platforms. 

But it has also not been verified. 

Brandon School Division sent letters to families regarding the concerns of parents over the past week about the challenge.

Even though there is no proof of the game existing, the division is asking parents to monitor internet activity with their child to prevent possible issues.
