Talking to your child about the new netflix show, "13 reasons why"

13 Reasons Why dramatizes the bullying, substance abuse, sexual abuse and eventual death by suicide of a high school student. The show also depicts a school counselor as out-of-touch and ineffective, identifying him as one of the 13 reasons why the protagonist, Hannah Baker, takes her life.
The gripping drama is grabbing a lot of attention, but it is the epitome of sad, shock, trauma messaging and we want you to be prepared to talk to your child about the importance of continuing to act as agents of change and connectors to help in their schools and communities.
