Parents are being urged to supervise their children’s online activity due a cyberbullying game called the "Momo challenge".

The challenge is appearing on social media platforms and targets children in particular.

“Momo" makes contact through social media, and allegedly asks the person to perform dangerous tasks, including self-harm.

So what can be done?  How is this allowed? Why is nobody held accountable?

To discuss, Ivan was joined by Katherine O’Keefe, who is a consultant and trainer at Castlebridge, and child psychologist Mark Smyth.
