Slender Man

The Slender Man (also known as Slenderman) is a fictional supernatural character that originated as an Internet meme created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen (a.k.a. “Victor Surge”) in 2009. Stories of the Slender Man commonly feature him stalking, abducting or traumatizing people, particularly children.  The Slender Man was a catalyst for the stabbing of a young girl in Wisconsin as her friends became obsessed with the character and thought luring their friends into the woods and killing her would appease him.

    I have never heard of Slender man until my son watched him on youtube. Anyone now how to block him off of youtube so my son can no longer watch him?

    I also want to keep up with my grandkids. They are on the internet all the time at my house. Now that I retired from teaching 3 years ago I am really out of touch with what is going on with the kids.

    Trying to keep up my Grandchildren ;D They are very busy and curious…just want to stay ahead of danger so we can talk about these things together. I Was on it with this Slenderman problem because it was so public…but there are a lot of things going on that are not so public. I hope this site turns out to be helpful. So far so good! ;D Thank You!

    I saw the full story about this on TV one night and was disturbed by the girls who did this and wondered how closely the parents were monitoring them. I think the idea of CarefulParents is great and hope to see more things I can keep an eye out in regards to dangers to my kids.

    This Alert was the motivation behind this site. A lot of stories similar to this can be found on the website Creepypasta which is also an alert on Carefulparents.
