The No Nonsense Parenting Show

MEDIA RELEASE


The No Nonsense Parenting Show

Cinema in Decline is pleased to present parenting guru and 'leading clinical psychologist of his generation' Alan Legtit in a new parenting seminar which tells confused, embattled parents exactly what to think. "These are the things you need to know in order to live anything like a worthwhile life" says Legtit, a household name and author.

Join the media personality who's not afraid to stick it to the media for the all-new No Nonsense Parenting Show! His relentless bravery in the face of the politically correct will have you breathing an old-fashioned sigh of thankfulness and relief. Legtit understands that every problem you have is someone else's fault, and now that the Clark era is behind us, New Zealand and its hard working parents are ready to stand up and be counted.

You see, Alan believes that life is actually a lot easier than we make it out. If you just trust your gut and avoid being sucked in by things like facial piercing and 'lesbianism', then you'll find that parenting, the hardest simple job in the world, is really a breeze. "Listen to me for an hour," says the rebellious celebrity and brilliant mind, "And you'll forget you even have kids."

Alan Legtit is looking forward to bringing some sanity to the New Zealand Fringe Festival.

Jonny has appeared as an actor in many Wellington productions.

David Lawrence: Director and lighting designer. He is from Wellington and likes cats. David is a multi-award winning theatre practitioner who can do and has done everything associated with theatre.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
