Battling Bullying

altSANTA CRUZ > Screening of documentary Bully and accompanying workshop to be held at the Del Mar Theatre

A special screening of the documentary Bully will take place at the Del Mar Theatre on Tuesday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m. A free parenting workshop on handling bullying issues will follow from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Both the screening and the workshop are courtesy of a partnership between the Del Mar Theatre and the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P).

Tripe P is a local parent education program through First 5 Santa Cruz County that offers free workshops, seminars, and group and individual consultations in both English and Spanish. The program was established two years ago to promote healthier, stronger families locally. (You can read more about the program in this previous GT blog.)


The workshop will be led by local Chris O’Halloran, an accredited practitioner with years of experience in parent education, and will cover topics ranging from recognizing different forms of bullying to handling situations where bullying is taking place.

Bully was recently bumped down from an R (for language) rating to a more accessible PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, after considerable pressure from anti-bullying advocacy groups and the film’s creators. Parents comfortable with a little bit of harsh language should feel free to bring their school-age children along. The rating change also means that the film can now be freely shown in high schools—a target audience given the documentary’s content.

Matinee prices will apply for the screening. To register for the workshop, contact Chris O’Halloran at 818-9664 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or visit the First 5 website.

Will there be any evening workshops available for parents? We both work full-time, but would like to attend one of these.

Evening showing would've been better for many working parents.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
