There’s a new and dangerous craze sweeping the nation: teens and younger kids are challenging one another to eat laundry detergent pods, often showing off their foolishness on YouTube.
We are not aware of any Prince William County Students who having taken the dare. However, a student did bring a laundry pod to one school, raising obvious concerns.
Please check out a recent Washington Post story on the dangers. Then, warn your students to steer clear of the practice, and tell them to promptly report anyone trying to tempt others into this risky behavior.
Simply put, eating laundry pods is dangerous, potentially deadly, and downright dumb!
Help stop it here before it starts.
