Yusra You Cannot let a 12 year old girl read "13 reasons why"!

Kelly THESE are the choices for 12 year old girls? WOW.

Wow , I thought the same thing... life is hard enough!!!

Faith Cass Yusra wrote: "You Cannot let a 12 year old girl read "13 reasons why"!"
why?


message 6: by Yusra (new)

Yusra I have read the book and i dont think it's appropriate for a 12 year old to read. Some could argue with me and say that there are mature readers at age 12, but majority of preteens are not and so should not read about suicide and rape, blackmail, etc. without being able to inference and comprehend the text. If they dont understand the morality of it, its influencing them to thinking that these things are common and okay to do.


message 7: by Emilia (new)

Emilia Mcguckin As a secondary education English and Communications teacher, I would disagree that a 12 year old shouldn't read "Thirteen Reasons Why." Unfortunately, at that age many kids are already dealing with issues of rape, blackmail, bullying, and suicide. Reading a book like "Thirteen Reasons Why" can help them learn more about the issues, give teens and parents a platform to have open and honest talks about what these issues mean and who to deal with them in healthy ways. I wouldn't just hand the book over to a middle schooler and say, "Here ya go! Enjoy!" but it could be a great opportunity for kids and parents to open up a healthy dialogue.


message 8: by Narendranath (new)

Narendranath which is the best in this kelly ?


message 9: by Janee (new)

Janee Wesson For all the people that say 12 year olds are not mature I AM ok !! And most 12 year olds are so, I think it would be a great book


message 10: by Mallory (new)

Mallory Johnson I really like the website "commonsensemedia.org". It lists Thirteen Reasons Why as a book for 14+.
https://www.commonsensemedia.org/book...

The Lovely Bones, which is the one I was concerned about, it listed as 16+. Everyone use your own judgement, you know your kid best. Mine is not ready for either of these books.


message 11: by Yhen (new)

Yhen Villas Uhhhmmm.. why is Anatomy of a Boyfriend included in this list? I think the Ken doll cover deceived you ha ha. The story definitely doesn't suit a 12 year old's bookshelf. Gave me a minor heart attack when I saw this listed above.


message 12: by Veronica (new)

Veronica Hester Ok: firstly I dislike lists like this telling you what girls should read, like lists telling boys what to read.
Secondly: 12 year olds are already pretty mature. They can handle more of these complex issues.
