For those who haven't heard about the Momo Challenge, it's a terrifying game which is a form of cyber bullying that uses a scary image of a character called Momo to entice kids to carry out dangerous tasks.

The game has started spreading rapidly over the past few weeks, leaving parents at a loss about how to combat the disturbing trend and keep their families safe.

One Twitter user called Samantha Easley said: "My 8 4 and 2 year old share and iPad and they watch YouTube kids. I showed my 8 and 4 year old a picture yesterday morning and my 8year old was in hysterics and said we can’t talk about it. And my 4 year old said she scares him in the middle of Peter rabbit. YouTube is deleted!!"

Others also expressed a similar sentiment about banning smart devices and websites such as YouTube.
