Neknomination Drinking Game – What Parents Need to Know


I first became aware of Neknomination after watching a video, The Deadly Social Media Drinking Game Set To Invade The U.S., posted on the Time website.

To play the game, teens make of video of themselves drinking an alcoholic beverage and post it on social media channels. After they down the drink, teens then nominate a friend to post a more extreme drinking video. If the friend declines, he or she is ridiculed online for not participating in the game.

Dayna Steele, from Your Daily Success Tip; Monica Guidry, from UT Health, and I shared our thoughts on Fox26 Houston on how parents should address this game and other social media issues with their children.
