HTH: Be Prepared for 13 Reasons Why Season Two
Today (May 18) Netflix releases Season 2 of the teen miniseries 13 Reasons Why. Parents of teens need to be informed about this series (whether their own teens watch it or not) because the kids will be talking about it.
The first installment examined issues from bullying to rape, and ended with the main character’s suicide. The series sent shockwaves through America’s high schools and counseling offices. Read about its impact on one Christian counseling office here. Counselor Sissy Goff outlines how she responded with her students and parents here, and she offers a link to share with kids here.
Here at Rooted, we shared several articles that will help you prepare to engage the kids you love about these difficult topics again; check out the link here. Above all, focusing on the perfect love of God casts out our fear. Trust our Wonderful Counselor, our Prince of Peace. He is infinitely more powerful than the darkness of any television series.
