I highly recommend What I Wish My Parents Knew
I highly recommend What I Wish My Parents Knew. What I found so valuable in this program was the fact that the creators weren’t trying to make a “movie.” Instead, they really captured the raw and unfiltered thoughts and feelings of youth such that we as parents could more deeply understand what was in their heads and hearts, and in effect, help us understand what may be going through our own loved ones minds and hearts. I have never seen such a real and respectful illustration of youth and what they may be going through.
An incredibly important examination of an incredibly important issue
What I Wish My Parents Knew” is an incredibly important examination of an incredibly important issue. Looking deeply into an issue as important childhood mental health and suicidal ideation is so important. Hearing this issue discussed in the voices of children who have endured this pain is deeply moving. I recommend this video with deep conviction and admiration for the children whose voices we hear and for Jason Reid and the directors who produced it.
Heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time
Heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time. A much needed piece on mental health that provides a sobering look into what some youths are experiencing. I gained greater empathy for their struggles and started to understand ways to be supportive, giving me hope. Much more to be learned.
