Parents and caregivers,
It has come to our attention that there is a spike in youth making videos for Snapchat and Instagram involving the choking game. Different areas have their own name for the activity but all are potentially deadly. There is brain damage from the first time tried.
Please monitor your childs social media accounts. Educate your children to also be on the lookout for friends that may post videos and please contact their parents.
This was not invented recently, it has been around for generations and generations going back to beginning of time. The new part is the sharing on social media in the last decade.
This game KILLS kids!
We believe that if a parent or caregiver has the information to teach their child that this is not something to try no matter if their friends are doing it; it is potentially deadly. But because parents don’t know about it themselves, it continues.
The choke hold is in almost every action movie and many cartoons. Kids roleplay and mimic what they see. They discover the adrenaline rush and no one is explaining its killing their brain cells. Chasing that “high” becomes something done alone and youth think that because no one says not to then it must not be a bad thing because it’s all over the media. Now the push for likes and shares are driving these youth to show friends on social media.
We must get the information out to parents and even schools. We must take action.
We encourage everyone to have the conversation with your youth. Give them the facts. Don’t leave it up to their friends to be the first ones to share this. It is deadly, its often called the good kids high.
Thank you for taking time to visit our website.
God Bless you all,

To all our followers, friends and loved ones,
I thought I would take a moment to thank everyone again who has prayed for my family these last 7 years. There are days that I feel empowered and it only takes a toy or sound, photo or a scent and my breath is taken away by grief. I tell myself “GOD HAS A PLAN & PRAISE GOD NO MATTER WHAT!” I will tell you it is hard some days and other days I am unstoppable with Gods armor.
Bless you all for the smiles, nods and waves that show me and my family we are not invisible and still loved. Bless you for the “likes, shares, retweets and messages” too. God bless the prayers you send up to Him, we feel them in our hearts.
Seven years ago we gathered to say goodbye to Joshua Leo and we will see him again one day. I believe this will all my heart and soul.
Thank you and Bless you all with our love for all eternity,
Wendi Engle & WildfarmKids family
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord : the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord , and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Psalms 34:1-4 from my King James Bible
School is begining for the year everywhere. Have you had the talk yet. The one about the choking game?
New children come into the school districts all the time. Our children become friends with them. Or your child may be going into a new school. New environment to share things with new friends. How they passed the time and their habbits. They may also share things that are considered risky behavior, one being the choking game aka pass out challenge.
This is the “good kids thing; their adrenaline rush high” the kids we parents think would know better and would never do something that may harm them. New classes bring new stories and new challenges to protect our children because we do not know the other families. This is a great time to share this information with the new parents. Share with your new friends!
Share this post on your social media feed; you might be opening the door to education for someone and never know it.
God Bless you all
