A light hearted prank or serious traumatic experience?

Parents have caused a bit of a stir online, when it comes to participating in a current TikTok trend.

The trend involves parents activating a crackling ghost filter on the app while their young children watch in a room by themselves.

Not all children in these videos appear to be frightened by this prank but many experts condemn the practice for its traumatising effect on kids.
