We need to teach them why.” The post was written with the aim of providing some valuable insights on the correlation that existed between the sleeping habits of a child and its impact on their learning and information processing capabilities.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Lawyer to help with welfare of guardian application

Sam and Mareah from Mount Roskill

Hi neighbours,

I am starting the process of applying for welfare of guardian for my Dad as he has Alzheimers and is in the moderate stages. Just wondering if there is any lawyer here on neighbourly or if someone can recommend a lawyer that is affordable to help me with my application please. And also if anyone has gone through the process I’d love to hear how it went for you and your experience. This is my first time doing something like this and I’m very nervous as I have no idea what I’m doing 😅 and have no support as my siblings live overseas. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
