Asking her daughter why she tried imitating the scene, the child replied that she saw the boy in the video becoming a ghost after tying a cord around his neck.

Explaining that her daughter almost lost her life after watching a video, the mother hopes that parents will watch their kiddos as well as the content they consume online.

After all, younger ones may only interpret what they see online at face value and need the guidance of their parents.

Parental guidance is important

After hearing about incidents like this, it’s understandable that parents may grow anxious about letting their children use the Internet.

However, the online world can still be beneficial, as long as users know their boundaries and how to protect themselves.

Teaching children about safe Internet usage from a young age is thus important in our modern world, to protect them in the long-run.

Perhaps the best ways to mitigate such incidents are to guide the kids along and download child-friendly applications.
