Re: “The Choking Game

Unfortunately we know "too much, too closely" about this. Our 16 year old son, Matthew, also died this way, almost 11 months ago. It makes no difference what kind of background a child comes from. It can't be hidden from kids. They seem to find out. You see, we homeschool our then, 10 children. Matthew was a good kid. He was not rebellious. He "wanted" to go to church. He started working at a dimestore, working for an older couple that treated him like a grandchild. He had paid for his own car. Life was good for him. But he made a terrible mistake that cost his life. He tried the choking game - he lost. We lost a son. His 11 year old brother found him hanging in our bathroom. His 15 year old brother cut him down. As 16 years previously I pushed with all my might to bring him into this world, I breathed all I could breath to put life back into him. But, it wasn't meant to be, and a precious life was ended too short. Now, I hear over and over in the news of yet, another child either dying or becoming injured with this life threatening game. Parents, teachers and children need to be warned of this game - over and over again. Please keep on with this game. Since you first wrote this there have been several deaths in the news of children dying from this. We need to scare the kids AND parents regarding this.

Re: “The Choking Game

You are so right to say it is no laughing matter.. There are 1000's of kid's that have died of this.. My 16 year old son died playing this stupid game in January this year.. This is a game that has been played for decades and not really talked about.. It is time to educate kids and parents that this is serious. There are signs parents can look for 1.Blood Shot Eyes 2. Marks on the neck. 3. Bags, ropes, ace bandages, belts, etc.. in room 4. Groggy after being alone for awhile. I wish someone would have told me about this game... I wish someone would have told me it was an addictive behavior... I wish someone would have told me good kids that go to church, get decent grades, are alway happy, get along with everyone, loving, think they are invincable kind of kids play this game.. Meet my son at and there are links to others. Please educate yourself and help stop this senseless trend.. Thank You .. Michele - Nick's Mom
