When I was a teenager, I was still wearing scrunchies, listening to The Spice Girls, and Kim Possible was the coolest crime-fighting chick. Now teenagers are eating Tide Pods and choking themselves to the point of passing out. Now, the latest in "Teen Craze" is nothing short of mind-boggling.

The new fad sweeping our teenage generation is ... the "48-hour challenge" to fake your disappearance. Essentially you go off the grid for a couple of days and scare the crap out of your family and see how much your picture gets shared and see who cares about you. I have no words for this challenge, and as a parent, I cannot fathom what those parents must be feeling or thinking. It also takes the importance off of the cases of children and teens who actually go missing, it really does make me sick to my stomach.
