** This podcast is marked explicit for a reason!**
So happy to have my friend Rebecca Gallagher, from frugalistablog.com on this bonus episode to dig into the popular and controversial Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. Rebecca is raising teens, and like me, watched the show and had powerful discussions about the themes that show up with her daughter.
Rowan and I actually watched the show together.
The themes that show up in 13 Reasons Why, created by Brian Yorkey and based on a book of the same name by Jay Ashor, are heavy, and intense. Some parents are unsure about whether it is something they want their kids to see.
Rebecca and I don't claim to have answers, but we do discuss our own opinions and experiences we had with sharing the show with our kids and the conversation that showed up because of it.
Topics include sexual assault, bullying, sexual harassment, rape and suicide. Like I said, intense. AND important to be talking about with the young people in our life.
Let me know what you think!
Come play with Rebecca and I this SATURDAY, April 29th in Bellevue, WA for the ultimate mama's night out. Click here for more details.
