VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION | JUNE 6-12, 2018 ENTERTAINMENT 5 tainers. It fuses painting, music, and dance to create a unique visual experience inspired by Biblical and classic fable themes. It features Coté, Blue Man Group's Kyle Harris, Richard Davia of the Sound of Gravity, Gerrit Curti of Raven King, The State Ballet of Rhode Island, and others. Themes will vary from Adam and Eve to Sleeping Beauty. "The performance will be almost theatrical," Coté said. He will likely use a 48-foot by 72-foot canvas for this event. "I'll present the work I end up producing and I'll gift it to the city of Providence," he said. He thanked the city for integrating him into the festival. Area residents are encouraged to attend PVDFest ready to be enter- tained. "They're going to see some- thing they've never seen before," he said. "It's new and fresh, unusual and edgy, and the audience will love it." To learn more about Coté and see some of his work, visit his website at . For the fourth year, Mayor Jorge Elorza, the city of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism and founding creative part- ner FirstWorks is hosting PVDFest. Providence's world-renowned art, culture and culinary community join forces with artists from across the country and world to deliver "a once-in-a-lifetime experience," say organizers.

This fiction was the centerpiece of their campaign for the so-called "democratic" family. "Because I said so" – which is mere affirmation of the legitimacy of the authority of the adult in question – was replaced with "What do you think, honey?" And the snowball began rolling downhill. The paradox is that giving chil- dren power in their relationships with adults weakens rather than strengthens them. As it erodes their sense of security, it increases their sense of vulnerability. As the feeling that adults can't be relied upon (i.e., a sense of helplessness) grows, so does resentment and lack of respect. Defiance of adult authority is intoxi- cating to a child, but like all intoxi- cants, it is ultimately self-destructive. Almost without exception, par- ents who describe depressed teens describe belligerent, disrespectful teens. Likewise, when these parents – those of them who can straighten their backbones, that is – begin to calmly and purposefully reclaim their natural authority, their kids begin to get better. Respect for adult authority on the part of a child is a good thing for his or her parents, but it's an even bet- ter thing for the child.
