Events @ MENZ Issues

By: Menz  06-Dec-2011

�Being a Dad is the most important job a man can do, so we�re offering advice and support to fathers so they can do their job better. The breakfast is also really good fun and a great feed,� says Ian Grant.

Each breakfast has a star line-up of speakers, such as Nick Farr-Jones, Todd Blackadder, Sean Fitzpatrick, Stephen Tindall and Neil Finn. �The speakers we�ve had at the breakfasts over the years have been from all sorts of professions � sports, business, medicine, entertainment � but they all have one thing in common,� says Ian, �They�re all outstanding fathers.�

Speakers present their personal experience of fatherhood, sharing the things that have worked and the things that haven�t. The practical nature of the speakers� advice, combined with the atmosphere generated by more than 700 fathers in a room, makes for a powerful event.

Cost: Single Ticket Price: $55.00 (Admits one person)
Table Of 10 Price: $550.00 (Admits 10 people)

Gender Politics @ MENZ Issues

Don Rowlands, 62, complained to the Human Rights Commission after he was not allowed to use the Appetite for Life programme, which aims to improve lifestyle and eating habits. The Appetite for Life course had not been tested with men and adapting it for them would require big changes, says CDHB planning and funding general manager Carolyn Gullery.


Boys / Youth / Education @ MENZ Issues

Whilst the public debate about child abuse in NZ has been somewhat distracted by deaths and horrific injuries to a very small number of children, the overall social vandalism of larger numbers of children is perhaps more disabling, in the territory of emotional neglect. Our prison building programme illustrates a small fraction of the total cost.


Domestic Violence @ MENZ Issues

The eight-minute video shows her confronting her son about misbehaving in school and lying, and then pouring hot sauce into the crying child’s mouth and not allowing him to spit it out for more than a minute. A US mother who poured hot sauce into the mouth of her seven-year-old son to punish the adopted Russian boy may face year-long jail sentence after being convicted of child abuse.


Child Support @ MENZ Issues

The British Government believes the issue of complusory child support often drives a wedge between parents and their children and encourages conflict, it says a settlement agreed independently is more likely to produce better outcomes for the child and inter-parental relations.
