Given recent media coverage of the "Momo Challenge" it's likely that you or your community have heard about Momo. While this may not be totally 'fake news' this is definitely exaggerated news. Ineqe has released a short video on how to best start a conversation about such stories when speaking to children in their care.

Remember to: PAUSE, THINK, PLAN before having the conversation. This isn't the first widespread panic in the media about what our children access online, and it won't be the last. Bromley Safeguarding Children Board advises all parents and carers to have regular informal conversations with their children about safety and ensure every child knows what to do if they see something that scares or concerns them.
