TikTok is all about emerging trends that teens are being observed to enjoy the most. These new trends range from the Angel of Death Challenge to the Viral Hanger Challenge. On the other hand, the latest TikTok craze to be brought to light is the “put on your shoes” trend where parents prank their young children.
To accomplish this task, parents must explain to their children that they are about to have a conflict with a neighbor and need help. Some parents go too far when they tell their children that their neighbors are bringing their children to the fight. This is a limit that should never be crossed.
This usually prompts the children to get their shoes, which is where the fashion trend got its name from: “Put on your shoes” challenge.
However, when the child comes to the door expecting to see someone to fight with, he realizes that there is no one there and he understands that his parents have been pranking him.
The “put your shoes on” challenge has taken over TikTok, and netizens can’t get enough of discussing it.
The challenge makes viewers laugh as they see how naively the child trusts their parents and how quickly the child puts on shoes to protect their parents’ honor. People have uploaded more than 59 million videos to TikTok, which has inspired them to come up with a variety of hoaxes to play with their kids.
Some kids are eager to support their parents in response to the trend, while others can’t believe they’re even in that position.
However, not everyone sees the challenge in the same way, which is why it receives a lot of backlash and criticism from TikTok and Twitter users.
One person on Twitter stated that she was “struggling to find this (the trend) hilarious” as she has been in situations where she has had to resolve conflicts between teenagers and even her own parents.
@KevOnStage Because I’ve been the one who had to stop arguments between teenagers and call the police when parents came to fight their kids at school, I’m having a hard time finding the humor in this situation.
People also debate how the challenge can affect a child’s thinking by making them believe that engaging in physical violence is acceptable. This is another topic that will be discussed. A user on Twitter explained that patterns like these give children the impression that violence is an “acceptable approach to dealing with arguments.”
This practice gives children the impression that resorting to physical violence is an acceptable approach to conflict resolution.
TikTok has a history of spawning trends that are unsettling and scary.
The short video sharing app is quite well known for the new trends it’s pioneering, but some of those trends are often troubling and potentially dangerous. The Angel of Death challenge is one of them and it became very popular about a month ago.
As part of the challenge, teenagers jumped in front of moving cars and trucks, ultimately resulting in the deaths of some young people. The majority of registered cases came from Indonesia and other regions of Asia, where the problem was also first discovered.
The Benadryl challenge is one of the more troubling and worrying trends that has emerged in recent times. In this challenge, teenagers ingest excessive amounts of the cough medicine. In addition, in recent years, this has been the cause of death for a number of young people.
Therefore, when participating in activities of this type, it is the responsibility of parents to instill in their children an awareness of the difference between appropriate and inappropriate behavior. When an adolescent sees their parents participating in a trend, the child is less likely to become a victim of risky and potentially life-threatening challenges or trends.
