Parenting - Now vs then

Stephanie Ockhuysen Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

Hi neighbours,

We're looking to chat to different parents in different circumstances from the last 40 years about their choice to stay at home or return to work and see what influenced it and how that has changed.

In June 2020 12.7% of all people not in the work force reported that their main activity was looking after a child - in 1986 it was 21%.

If you fall into one of the below categories, or know someone that does, and are happy to chat please get in touch via direct message or email stephanie.ockhuysen@stuff.co.nz.

- New parents who have chosen to stay home with children aged 3-5.
- New parents who have returned to work with children aged 3-5.
- A parent who decided to stay home with young children in the 1980s.
- A parent who decided to return to work with young children in the 1980s.

Need Are your windows hard to open?

Exceed - we fix windows and doors

Hi neighbours,

Have you noticed that your windows are stiff, or the handle is a bit loose?
Depending on age, quality and probably a little bit determined by luck, different parts of a window can’t work anymore:

• Locking pins no longer lock exactly
• Window handle is difficult or difficult to turn
• Window sash does not fit properly in the frame (must be lifted or pushed in)
• Window handle wobbles

If you have windows that are stiff to open or close or leave big draught gaps give us a call on 0800 25 25 00 for a free estimate.
Hinges can easily be replaced without worrying about the cost of replacing the whole window.

The Exceed we fix windows & doors team :)
