We are often told that every child must have caring loving, supportive parents.....in particular the mother is hailed as THAT parent. But more often than society would have us believe, some mothers find maternity stressful and lack the ability to bond and nurture, some are unable to show concern empathy and love toward their child and the child misses that invaluable bond.
However, did you know that research, shows time and time again, that a child, a baby, a teen, needs JUST ONE AVAILABLE ADULT in its life to become its optimal best, emotionally, physically and mentally. It does not need to be a parent. So don't despair, YOU can become that person! Be it a grandparent, caregiver, teacher, extended family member. You can make a difference.
Today, I happened to glance at a copy of Waikato Times and lo and behold, most of the front page was dedicated to council declaring what a wonderful vista it will be when the 'derelict' municipal pools are demolished. I was astounded. I am almost certain that supporters of the revitalisation of the pools have never been given the same space and privilege of being on the Front Page. Where is the fair play here? The impartiality ? These pools have been with us for over 100 years, and are one, if not the only concrete outside pool, of its type in New Zealand. They have been the making of many memories for thousands of Hamiltonians and others over the years and yet The Waikato Times and other media sources have chosen to give very little support to the pools. Please people email council, even now at the 11th hour, your voice, our voices could make the difference!
This lifestyle property has multi-generational appeal and great scope for a home-based business. The 5.6 ha block, just 10 minutes from Cambridge, contains two modern homes, a substantial four-bay shed with a big lean-to for farm storage, and a series of paddocks supported by various outbuildings.

Hi everyone, I found a fabulous website here: www.lightupchristmas.co.nz...
Scroll down to Waikato region and you will see how few people have added their properties to the christmas lights list so far.
Sure we can add to this list significantly, and would love to see many more properties sharing the joy of Christmas with others through their festive light displays and the abovementioned website.
PS: I know its early yet but thought I'd put this message up now before I forget to do it later when much busier. Maybe someone from one our local tabloids reads this and writes a bit of an editorial with the abovementioned link.
