kid do it and they want to be a part of it and they make a game of it, but they don't understand the ramifications that could occur afterwards."Doris Murphy, an eighth grade teacher at Bethel Middle told WTNH, "A couple of my girls had come to me because kids were ending up with pretty severe wounds on their arms they're 13, 14 years old, and what's cool takes over sometimes."In his letter, Muharem encouraged parents to speak with their children about the "ridiculous Air Max 90 All Black Leather and unsafe" Eraser Challenge.
BETHEL, Conn. (WRIC) Adolescents across the nation are engaging in Nike Air Max 90 Green And Grey
a dangerous new trend called the Eraser Challenge that has parents, teachers and administrators concerned.Derek Muharem, the principal of Bethel Middle School in Bethel, Conn., made headlines last week after he sent home a letter to parents, alerting them to "a troubling 'activity' that teens across America are getting involved in" the Eraser Challenge."Students have explained the Eraser Challenge this way: kids take an eraser and begin 'erasing' their skin while saying the alphabet and coming up with a word for each letter," Muharem wrote.

Many viewers who commented on these videos allege the trend goes back years.Eraser Challenge YouTube videos feature everything from kids excitedly erasing the skin on their forearms in titles like "First Vid.: Eraser Challenge!" to youngsters sporting scabbed and bloody body parts, like in the video entitled "Why you should not do the eraser challenge."It appears that kids engage in the Eraser Challenge all in good fun, but parents and school administrators warn that the game can result in irritation, pain, bleeding and scarring.What's more worrisome is that in many cases, children and teens are sharing body fluid through the game. They're breaking their own skin with erasers and then passing them on to their friends, who then break their skin with the contaminated erasers. The risk of infection is high."Kids are using the same eraser, going from one arm to the other, passing it off," Muharem told ABC affiliate WTNH in New Haven, Conn.
