The Netflix series 13 Reasons Why has sparked controversy with its plotline of a teenage girl who commits suicide after traumatic events in her life. The title comes from the 13 cassette tapes she leaves to “friends” who played a role in her death, according to her. The show raises the question, how well do you know your own teenager, and what they are currently experiencing? Here are some ways to improve your communication — and fully understand your role — with the teens in your life.
