Blue Whale Challenge
After reading all about the Pink Whale Game, I doubt that any one will go for the notorious Blue Whale Game. Even if you want to find out the links to the game you will not be able to find them. As this blue whale challenge app is not available on app stores, plus Indian government also suggested top social media and websites like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Yahoo to remove its links if any. This game is said to be circulated in private groups with different names, mostly from Russia. Rather than participants find the game, admin finds the vulnerable teen victim for the game. The game creator is now behind bars, so now the game is not in control of its creator. Blue Whale game’s 50 challenges are known for its addiction, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. This games also provoked a new self-harm trend in China called “Human Embroidery” where young people from China sewing threads into their skin on their limb and even lips. To make it worse, they are using colorful threads, beads, and ribbons to make it fashionable.
We request all our readers not to try these games at all, it’s not worth.
Remember life is beautiful, you might be going through problems. This happens in teenage years, we tend to make a bigger issue of smaller things like relationship problem, study or career pressure, social and family pressure, parents problem or even financial problem. Guys, this just a phase in life, it will go away with time. There are these bad people who try to take advantage of your situation. Don’t let them take control of your life. Dont feel excluded, teenage depression happens with all. It’s just a phase.
I am not advertising for the Pink Whale Game, but it’s worth trying as it promotes positivity, there is no compulsion to complete the game. This is for fun… So Be Happy…
Teenage Depression is Real Enemy, not Blue Whale
Teenage depression is a real problem but somehow we Indian are not treating the root cause. Games or challenges like Blue whale etc are the just apps, it’s not the real problem. In India, parents don’t interact with teenagers, they either mistaken as child or adult, but they are neither of them; they are teenagers. This is the phase in life where one needs support from family and friends. This is the phase where one wants to explore, want freedom, if not allowed they rebel or go into the shell. We as a society, parents need to understand that teenagers need to be treated differently, we need to be more like friends, guide than just parent or teachers.
Violent Games are Famous in Teenagers
There is another trend in today’s digitized world that makes teenagers cozy with violence. Almost all famous games are based on violence. Over the time this can affect the teenager’s attitude towards life. Children now don’t play cricket, football or other outdoor games, most of the time they are on phone. Yes, we need to adapt with technology but technology should not rule our lives. Now playing cricket, football or swimming becoming luxurious hobbies, one pays to play. We need to create opportunity and environment for children, teenagers to go out and play.
I am not a psychiatrist, but I often observe teenagers issues. So these can be the possible solutions.
- Parents need to talk to teenagers and try to understand their point of view. They should not force their views on children.
- Teenagers are in a phase of their sexual exploration. In India, we dont have formal sex education plus even talking about it is a taboo. Rather than just banning some game, parents need to talk to teenagers, Indian education system should adapt with time.
- We cannot take away a phone from them but we can monitor what they are playing, their behavior on phone but with respecting their privacy too.
