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.

From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
