Texting Story App + 'Ladies night out' VIDEO

Have you seen the new app called Texting Story?

It's a super simple to use app which turns your texts into a video... which you can then share online, often for a bloody good laugh.

Like this one, going viral. WATCH + LAUGH!

Posted on the Open Minded Mothers Facebook page, at last count it had over 17 million views, over 69,000 likes, and over 365,000 shares, it's just TOO good! Those expletives!! That backtracking on what we REALLY wanna say to our partners... I kinda feel like relationships are one BIG, lonnnng conversation which goes from wanting to say 'shut the fuck up', and changes it to a far more friendly, "Okay, babe! Whatever you want babe! Love ya babe!"

'13 Reasons Why': Netflix Phenomenon - VIDEO

You've very likely heard about '13 Reasons Why'... but why the deafening buzz?

Before we dissect the show seemingly everyone is talking about, here is the trailer for the show streaming right now on Netflix Australia and New Zealand, and globally:

Based on the best selling global novel by Jay Asher, '13 Reasons Why' launched on Netflix Australia on Friday March 31.

Executive produced by singer and actress Selena Gomez, with episodes directed by Academy Award winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), '13 Reasons Why follows teenager Clay Jensen (incredible newcomer Dylan Minnette) as he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it on his porch. Inside he discovers cassettes (remember those?) recorded by Hannah Baker (equally talented newcomer Katherine Langford) —his classmate and crush - who tragically committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Will Clay be one of them? If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

The viewer sees Hannah and Clay’s dual narratives, with '13 Reasons Why' weaving a gut wrenching story of teenage life that will deeply affect viewers.

Josie's Juice is a proud Netflix 'StreamTeam' blogger and has watched the series. Her nine year old... keen as, but it's a few years off for her. But the lessons... oh, the lessons. Filed for future use.

To subscribe to Netflix, go here: https://www.netflix.com

The show has come under scrutiny as, only three weeks since it started streaming on Netflix, and just a few days ago, the national Headspace School Support program, which supports school communities in the aftermath of a suicide, and eHeadspace, the national online and over-the-phone counselling service, issued a statement, in light of receiving a growing numbers of calls and emails directly related to the TV series.

“National and international research clearly indicates the very real impact and risk to harmful suicide exposure leading to increased risk and possible suicide contagion,” National manager of Headspace School Support, Kristen Douglas, said.

Meanwhile head of eHeadspace - Dr Steven Leicester - said professionals working for the service had been dealing with a steady stream of concerned parents and young people since the show first aired.

“There is a responsibility for broadcasters to know what they are showing and the impact that certain content can have on an audience – and on a young audience in particular,” he said. 

The foundation has urged schools, as well as parents, and mental health services to be aware of the dangers and risks associated for children and young people who have been exposed to the content of the program.

The warning at the end of each story on suicide on TV or in print media is important and there for a reason.

Here is that statement:

If you, or someone you know, is going through a hard time, support is always ready for you. 

If you need support, you can call Lifeline on 13 11 14. To contact SANE, a national charity helping Australians affected by mental illness, call their helpline on 1800 187 263. If you’re in an emergency, call 000.
