Important Message for Parents

Dear Parents,

Please take the time to read the information below, published by the National Association of School Psychologists, if you feel your child has watched, or is possibly interested in watching, the popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, season 1 or the upcoming season 2 released May 18, 2018.

Although there are many controversial television shows, this particular one is prominent in the eyes of educators and psychologists because of its dramatic portrayal of sexual assault and suicide among teenagers.  Season 2 will explore more of the same issues and possibly school shootings as well.  It is important to note that the show is rated TV-MA, for mature audiences and parent guidance for children under 17.

There is great information below, with supporting links and even a viewer’s guide, if you choose to watch the program with your child. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s Guidance Counselor.
