Middle school students are watching a show called “13 Reasons Why,” which is about a girl who commits suicide, but she makes 13 tapes about each reason and each person who treated her poorly or made her feel depressed. There are many graphic scenes. Like, sexual assault, suicide, blood, and more. It leaves a disturbed feeling for most middle schoolers. 

The show “13 Reasons Why,” has become a very popular show for middle schoolers. Many kids have different opinions on what message the show can leave. Many kids haven’t reached the maturity level required to watch the show. 

“It was a good show, but I don’t think it’s appropriate for a lot of middle schoolers,” said Justine Teters.

Many parents have told their children not to watch the show. Feeling that the show may contribute to negative behavior. Other parents believe it can teach a lesson or have a meaningful theme. Believing it can improve behavior and teach a valuable lesson on cyberbullying and suicide prevention.
