Spooky Charlie Charlie Challenge Takes Social Media By Storm

Charlie-Charlie-challenge

(PCM) The latest internet craze has teens attempting to summon a Mexican demon named Charlie by partaking the “Charlie, Charlie Challenge” using two pencils and some notebook paper. Using the hash tag #CharlieCharlieChallenge, teens are posting videos of their attempt at the game all over social media. 

To attempt to summon the demon, you place two pencils in the form of a cross on a sheet of paper, with 
“yes” and “no” written in four boxes. Then after asking “Charlie” a question, you await his response in the form of the pencil moving to either the “yes” or the “no” box on the paper. It is kind of like a simplified taken on the famous Ouija Board. 

According to many sources the game actually has absolutely nothing to do with Mexican folklore, as experts say that most Mexican “so-called” demons are American inventions. Either way, teens and superstitious types are getting incredibly freaked out by the game. 

 

Obviously, once the questions “Charlie, Charlie are you there?” and “Charlie, Charlie, do you want to play?” are asked, the pencil is surely going to move just based on the way that it is balanced, but that thought is not enough to keep teens from running screaming from the room. Part of this urban legend also says that if you stop playing before Charlie is ready than it can lead to hauntings and other other unpleasant happenings.  

The simplified #CharlieCharlieChallenge also appeared to be a take on the Mexican game “Six Pencils” which may be where the folklore aspect got a bit warped.

Mom Publicly Shames Teen For Lying About Her Age On Facebook

Val-shame-vid

(PCM) It is always important for parents to monitor their children’s activities online, especially when it comes to social media networks such as Facebook.  When one Colorado mother discovered that her 13-year old daughter was posing as a 19-year old and posted a photo of herself in a bra and lace panties her reaction has now gone viral.

In addition to banning her child from Facebook this mom took things a step further and created a video, which she posted on both her’s and her daughters Facebook pages, publicly shaming her for her online behavior.  She made her daughter tell everyone her real age, that she watches Disney channel, has a bedtime and that her underwear still has the days of the week on them.

The video has since gone viral and has been viewed over 11 million times since the mother posted it and many people are praising the mom for taking control of her daughters behavior. Others feel that she went too far, as the daughter can been seen in the video with tears streaming down her face.

The mother posted another video thanking other parents for their support and tells critics that she is not there to be her child’s friend, but rather to keep her protected. She reveals that she is a convicted felon and she refuses to lose her child to the streets. She claims what she did came from a place purely of love and hopes to encourage other parents to pay more attention to their children’s behavior online.
