Momo has become the nightmare of many children and of many parents who do not know what to do so that their children stop waking up with nightmares at night. Now, Momo is back and this time in the form of the Halloween costume that scares kids the most. And it is not for less, the shadow of the virtual monster is elongated, and it seems that it has come to stay, at least until October 31.
Whether or not you have children, you've likely heard of Momo. It is a terrifying image that went viral some time ago around the world. In it you can see a creature, semi human? with long black hair, white skin, bulging eyes, and an indescribably hideous mouth.
It was said that this image sneaked into children's mobiles and in the different videos to scare them and throw a curse on them. Something like a viral game that invited children to commit crimes and carry out certain rites or games that would endanger their lives.
However, over time, it became known that this was a lie and that Momo was nothing more than fake news; a statue created to become famous and scare the little ones. But, although it was finally discovered that it was not a macabre viral game for children, the truth is that there were many little ones who saw his face. And they could no longer forget her.
Luckily, and for the peace of mind of your children and your own, we will tell you that the creator of the Momo sculpture has assured that he has already destroyed it. He has explained that with his 'death', the creature's curse has disappeared. However, many have taken advantage of Halloween to take her out for a walk again.
Every year certain fashionable costumes are put on, depending on the films that are released, the events that have taken place or the characters that have been talked about the most. And for that very reason, Momo is succeeding this Halloween. As with the original image, social networks have been filled with photos of people dressed up with this terrible face.
There are those who have been made her own Momo Halloween costume, but it is not too complicated to buy it either. And it is worth doing a quick search on the Internet to find different stores that sell it, in most cases in mask format. But, most surprising of all, you can also find video tutorials on YouTube to make up like this horrible creature.
There will be more than one child who will meet Momo again this October 31 ...
Halloween is one of the funniest times of the year: costume parties, pumpkin games, bat crafts ... However, we cannot forget that all this celebration is based on scares, monsters and fear. Thus, there are children who tremble at the arrival of Halloween. They refuse to ask for candy on October 31, they don't want to go to the school costume party, they are afraid of children's Halloween movies ...
Celebrating Halloween with children who are afraid of (almost) everything can be tricky. Especially when we know that They could meet someone dressed up as the horrible Momo doll. However, there are a few little things parents can do to help prepare them for Halloween night. Let's see some:
1. Talk to the children about what Halloween is
Before the arrival of the feast of fear, talk to the child about what Halloween is and what is going to be found at school and shops (decoration of ghosts, bats and vampires ...). By anticipating ourselves, we will ensure that children are prepared to run into the odd ghost without being afraid of it.
2. Away with the fear of monsters!
Halloween monsters are often very scary for children. However, it is as simple as explaining that the werewolves in stories are fictional characters and that under the sheet of that ghost is a person of flesh and blood.
Another good way to reduce children's terrors is by 'ridiculing monsters'. Thus, they will realize that they can also be funny and friendly creatures. To do this, it helps to read stories, invent your own monsters, sing Halloween songs, etc.
3. Don't watch certain scary movies
The television grid and movie theaters are filled with scary movies during this time. Many of these productions are designed for children, but not all children are ready to see all the titles. Therefore, before showing a certain film to your children, find out if it is adapted for their age and if it is convenient for them to see it.
4. Enjoy Halloween as a family
If your children see that you are enjoying Halloween and that you are counting the days until October 31 arrives, they will want to participate in the celebration too! Use this party as an excuse to have a great time as a family, whether it is preparing the celebration together, organizing an afternoon of movies at home or reading funny stories together.
You can also organize a small party at home or go out to ask the neighbors for candy. Of course, be careful with the amount of sweets you take! And is that according to a study published some time ago in The Medical Journal of Australia, there are many brands that take advantage of this party to do business, not only with our pockets (since some families leave a real fortune in decoration), but also with our health and that of our children.
The trinkets that the little ones eat at home (and that we accumulate for months afterwards) pose a health hazard. And we are sending the children the message that to have a good time, at a party or celebration, we have to eat this type of very unhealthy snack. Can't you celebrate with fruit?
With this reflection we end, but not before saying: Happy Halloween (without Momo)!
