On Monday, both Riverdale Principals sent out a letter warning parents about the Netflix series ’13 Reasons Why,” which many teenagers are binge watching without adult guidance and support. The show – about a teen who takes her own life and leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people she believes contributed to her death – contains mature subject matter including graphic depictions of rape, drug use and suicide. It is raising concerns from suicide prevention experts. If you have not already read their letter, which also contains tips and resources for talking with your children, please do so now.
