    Father’s Family Fun Day was planned in order to signify the importance of fatherhood as well as to highlight The Department of Children and Families started this event several years ago with a commitment to identify, engage and support a father’s relationship with their children. Research shows that when fathers are involved with their children in a positive, nurturing, safe and consistent way, there are lifelong benefits to children. There will be a White Ribbon Day Pledge at this event.

    Film Screening and dialog
    The Boy Game

    By New Day Films

    Join us for a dialogue about boys, boy culture and bullying. What is the connection to gender based violence? This will be a roundtable dialog.  One question will be how can mentors of boys contribute to solutions.

    “The Boy Game”, a 16 minute film, tackles bullying among boys at its core: the culture of toughness and silence boys live by. Targets need to be protected, absolutely, but rather than vilify bullies, “The Boy Game” looks to unpack the complex dynamics that lead some boys to bully and the majority to stand watching in silent conflict.


    Discussion Facilitated by Matthew Swoveland, Director of Youth and Prevention Programs with The Second Step, Newton MA.
