Schools warn parents about Netflix's '13 Reasons Why'
Feb 23, AM. If not, what is the bad content of the book, swear words,violence, sexuality, etc. Feb 23, PM. Just having read the synopsis, I wouldn't give this title to a year old. A suicide note from a teen peer would be bad enough, but this poor kid has received a series of audio tapes from the now dead teen.
I'm sure by now if you haven't already binge-watched the Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why , you at least have heard about it. Hannah Baker, a new student at Liberty High School, dies by suicide. Prior to her death, she leaves a series of tapes with 13 stories of 13 people that in some way affected her decision to end her life. The show follows her friend and co-worker Clay as he listens to the tapes and we, as viewers, watch flashbacks of the events that took place according to Hannah while also seeing how her death affects the other students in present day. So for a popular show to make its main focus the suicidal death of a teenage girl, it's a big deal. But then, of course, we have folks who believe the show glorifies suicide and is forbidding the show to be mentioned in school.
It's been just over a year since the first season of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why grabbed the attention of tweens, teens, and adults alike with its compelling story of Hannah Baker, a girl who ultimately decides to take her own life following incidents of bullying and sexual assault. Now, with season two hitting the streaming service on May 18, parents are tuned back into the series and whether or not they should allow their kids to binge-watch its 13 new episodes. Because the series's main plot points are highly triggering and heavy, the series is rated MA, but what age does that translate to? According to Common Sense Media , kids who have seen the series say that 14 is the appropriate age for teens to watch it, whereas parents feel age 16 was more appropriate. In our parent's guide, which covered the things you should know before watching the series with your kids, we recommended kids be 15 before viewing.
