TikTok is Challenging Your Child to ‘Slap’ Their Teacher This Month—What Parents Need to Know

  • October: Smack a staff member.
  • November: Kiss your friend’s girlfriend at school.
  • January: Jab a breast.
  • February: Mess up school signs.
  • March: Make a mess in the courtyard or cafeteria.
  • June: Flip someone off in the front office.

“Please make your child is aware of the very serious consequences that could happen if they engage in this behavior.”

The school district also included references to Common Sense Media, which has a running list of popular social media challenges your kids already know about, and how to talk to them about making wise choices in response to the internet trends.

Parents, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, TikTok is not a friend to our kids. Be vigilant in knowing the trends, knowing your kids’ activity on social media platforms, and TALKING about how to behave online. In 2021 our virtual presence carries nearly as much, if not more representation of who we are, how we behave, and what we believe. If your child is on TikTok, you have a responsibility to know about their online presence, and educate them on the consequences of these challenges.
