There is a new challenge that parents need to be aware of on the internet!

This challenge, The 48 Hour Challenge, involves kids and teens going missing..on purpose!

Yahoo.coom is reporting that:

Police are telling parents to keep a watchful eye over their teens after stories of a “48-hour challenge” are popping up around the internet.

“It encourages teens to go missing for up to two days at a time and awards points for every social media mention while they’re missing,” KMOV reports.

This has to be one of the dumbest, yet scariest things to be on the internet since the Tide Pod craze. Beyond freaking out that your child is missing, now you may have to worry about it being a hoax or not? Kids won't see the danger in this but it is something that parents need to know it out there.
