    My son is 7 years old and he knows very well that Momo is a doll created in Japan !! He does not believe in that nonsense. And he still said that he is an ill-intentioned idiot wanting to terrorize children. And another my son still said that since the Momo is a doll made in Japan she obviously would have to be communicated in Japanese to see that everything is nonsense the worst is people who believe and get carried away by a mentally ill person who wants for the fear in children through a ridiculous doll.

    TheXvid Kids was never safe to use. When I was 9 years old, I was able to access videos from the actual TheXvid site and could watch them easily. I don’t remember how I did it, but I can say that it was possible.

    Those kids should be playing with mud in the back-yard or soccer or anything else rather than spending so much time on the phone, I know its difficult, but if the mother or father has the time to spend with them, they should help them avoid using phones... and problem solved
