As we also did here back in January, the News Observer is warning parents of Fannin County about the potentially deadly activity middle schoolers and early teens play called the choking game.

If you have children in this age range, it's prudent to have a discussion with them about this game before they get exposed to it so that they can view it in the proper safety context.

Alright i had no problem with the birds and the bees talk, although I have only had to have it wit 1 of the 3 so far, but this game.....

Somebody wiser then me or that has brought this up to their child tell me how. I am scared I will explain it and give them an idea to share with their friends. Please help, I do not want to be a parent saying I should have talked to them....

A strong fish goes against the flow.

Evolution at work. I do not recall kids being this dumb when I was young.
