Disturbing Documentaries That Will Scar Parents Forever
The Mask You Live In (2015)
We’re in the era of the MeToo Movement which elevates women’s voices and promotes equality and support of women and girls who’ve experienced sexual abuse. So The Mask You Live In attempts to provide the same awareness and support for boys as well. It is a documentary that everyone should watch and even take notes! From the ongoing school shootings and mass killings America endures weekly, our children are suffering and America could use a serious intervention.
Parents need to understand the pressures that our boys face. They are encouraged to represent society’s of masculinity, and we need to raise our children to ignore those stigmas sometimes in order to focus more on self-care, mental health, and individuality. This powerful doc reminds parents to be easier on our boys… They are just as vulnerable as girls when it comes to mental health, and they need our guidance, not out judgement.
