I think August is a good suggestion for bringing the parents, but maybe not so much if there's a little sibling or elderly family member involved. The show is fairly long, so they might struggle a little.

It's a really great story, but if you're too young to know what's going on, you're going to get bored and ruin everyone else's time just to entertain your 10-year-old self.

Did you actually say that August is "relatable"? OMG, are you speaking from your own abuse/incest/suicide/addiction experience? You should write a memoir!
