Being a kids hasn't changed over the years.  What has changed is the ease of which information is shared between kids. When we were kids, information was shared through phone calls and exaggerated tales during sleepovers.  Today the Internet has taken its place but the same rumors and mis-information is there, which is why we you need to be aware of a recently trending challenge many kids are doing thanks to an online video.  It's called the condom snorting challenge, where a person inhales an unwrapped condom through your nose and pulling it through your throat and out your mouth. Like many questionable young trends, the Condom Challenge isn’t new, but rather a resurgence of something bored teens have been doing for years. But it doesn't mean it is harmless as it not only is painful but the condom may get inhaled in the lungs or block airways leading to suffocation.  It's worth a quick chat with your kids to remind them of the dangers of this prank.
