I’ve been getting quite a few media calls about the two Waukesha (WI) girls who attempted to kill their friend, believing they were trying to impress the internet-urban-legend character Slenderman. Here are some links to interviews:
Tuesday, June 3rd:
WISC-TV (Madison, WI)
WKOW-TV (Madison, WI)
Wednesday, June 4th:
Monday, June 9th:
Wisconsin Public Radio (The Joy Cardin Show)
This is a big news story, of course, because it is so bizarre and tragic, but also because it exposes some special challenges that the internet poses in terms of successful parenting and healthy child development.
