I'm 20 and a Billie STAN TO THE MAX and had to watch it

I LOVE this documentary!! Billie used to cut herself at around ages 15ish but advises her all age groups of viewers that you shouldn't take your angriness or sadness on your body. I watched this documentary early March and have been clean of self harm since viewing it... so about 2 months! If you have a teen that wants to watch this... know that Billie helps them in ways that you can't or that they wouldn't think you understand. Billie really helped me with my pain and she helps your kid most likely too.

I’m a 22 Billie Stan so here’s my review

Ive been a Billie Stan for around 3 years now so I immediately knew this was a MUST WATCH. Soooo parents of teens who are Billie stans... let them watch this!! Billies music really helped me through a tough time of my life battling suicide, depression and addiction. Her documentary shows a lot of really cool history of each song. She does talk about her self harm scars but she sends a VERY BROAD message to her viewers that self harm isn’t worth it no matter what you’re going through. There’s a bit of cussing here and there, but I mean I’m sure they’ve heard the words before. Like not one of billies songs are explicit sooo... She also draws a sketch of a vagina but I mean if you have a mature enough son then he’ll be fine for the 20 seconds it shows. If you’re raising a girl... then who care?! She has a vagina doesn’t she?? I say this should be allowed to be viewed by any mature 13 year old and up! I hope you liked my review:)) Have a great day!
