TikTok has lately been the “trending factor” when it comes to anything happening online these days. Recently it was the milk crate challenge that was eventually banned for safety reasons.
Now TikTok has done it again and this time the challenge starts October 2021, and is centered around slapping a teacher. Yes, you read it right! The challenge is “Slap A Teacher “ , it’s bad enough teachers aren’t paid enough and deal with a lot already. Now they will have to deal with a trend that threatens to do physical harm against them.
Every parent will need to talk to their child before they involve themselves in this trend, as it can land he/she in court along with the parent being charged or fined as well.
The Slap a Teacher challenge isn’t the first TikTok trend that’s targeted schools. In September, some students began participating in another devious challenge, stealing items like soap dispensers from school bathrooms and bragging about it on social media.
Let’s hope the parents will get involve before anything happens, this is one trend that needs to be stopped before it can start.
