Or, "what can we do to better educate parents and prevent this new unsafe fad in schools?"
Well, here is the story first, and then I'll reveal my initial thought:
(BETHEL, CT) The principal of Bethel Middle School wants parents and school districts around the state to be aware of a dangerous game going around that’s become popular with teenagers. It’s called the ‘Eraser Challenge’.
Videos of the so-called game are popping up all over YouTube. It’s a dare where kids take an eraser and begin “erasing” their skin while saying the alphabet and coming up with a word for each letter.
Once they get to the letter Z, they stop and compare their eraser burns with their friends. The challenge can cause pain, severe irritation, bleeding, scarring and even possible infection...
So what thought pops into my mind after hearing about this strange yet typical teen-type stunt?
Wow, I am impressed that young people are excited about a vocabulary-building challenge!
I wonder if we could invent and then get students hooked on a similar test that allows for the improvement of multiplication and division skills while facing the threat of a noogie?
What do you think?
Does the "Noogie Challenge" have a future in schools?
Whoa, I think the long winter is having a negative impact on me.
Good thing warmer weather has arrived here.
