The " Passing Out Game"

To me, a game means participation with other players. But, the new rage among some teenagers is the 'passing out game', or 'choking game', which requires only yourself. It's no game; it can be the path to death. And, many young people have lost their lives to this dangerous 'game', just for a quick high. But, it cuts off the needed oxygen supply to the brain, causing damage or possible death.

The parents of one teenager, Carol and Tim Wilson, are speaking out about the death of their 15 year old daughter. They don't want other parents to have to go through the tragic and unnecessary death of a child as they did last week.

Read the information at Connect With Kids on the 'passing out game' and things parents should know.
