How to Support Your Child if They Have Watched 13 Reasons Why

Recently the Netflix Show, 13 Reasons Why was released.  I highly recommend that your child watch this show with a caregiver so that a discussion can be had on these intense topics.  Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
