Talking with your child about 13 Reasons Why

En español

13reasonsposterParents, there's a new TV series that some students have been discussing with their peers. Netflix recently launched the series called 13 Reasons Why. It is based on a popular novel with the same name. The series is rated for Mature Audiences (MA) and is also available to watch on other streaming websites. The fictional story is a cautionary tale about a young girl’s suicide and covers sensitive subject matters in graphic detail. Psychologists warn that the show glamorizes teen suicide and may encourage self-harm.

We are sharing this information with you so that your family can make an informed decision about your children’s media use.

If your children have seen or are talking to you about the series, we have some talking points you may wish to discuss with them.

You may also ask your child’s school for a copy of the talking points.

If your student needs additional support, please contact your student’s school.
