The Netflix series 13 Reasons Why is trending nationally, especially with teens. The video series depicts strong and graphic themes of suicide, bullying, drug use, sexual assault and other social issues (the series is rated TV Mature). We understand it is each parent’s decision whether or not to allow their child to watch the series. However, we encourage parents to research the series before making the decision.
