13 reasons why has become a very popular television show within the last year. The first season covered the controversial and sad topic of teen suicide. The second season has involved a lot of sexual assault and violence. How is this show affecting teens? Should they be allowed to watch it? What are your thoughts on how the topics are introduced and what the show truly stands for? Is it an accurate representation of life for teens? Do a lot of people understand that it is fiction and not based on a true story? How do you feel about the violent episodes (especially in season 2) if you have watched the show?
My dad is a teacher and after the second season came out the principal emailed parents and told them to watch the show with their kids and discuss it. Do you think discussing the material in the show is important? Or should we just treat it as another fiction tv show?
