the new "fad" around our area is this cold water challenge. Basically a person get nominated to jump in a local body of water, must be done within 24 hours of the nomination, record it, post it on facebook.....then nominate 3 more people. If you do not want to do it you have to donate to a local charity. We live in the upper part of Wisconsin. our bodies of water still had ice on them less then a month ago. they run between 35-40 degrees right now. kids are getting hurt all over the place. the coast guard, Dr's, and police are warning of the dangers as well.
The idea started out innocent enough, and I am totally fine with donating to a local charity, but this challange in my opinion has switched from something good to now kids daring others kids to do sometime potentally unsafe.
I am very proud of my 15 year old son. He sees the dangers in this "challenge" and will not do it and I will not allow him to do this challenge even if nominated.
Would you allow your teen to do this challenge?
