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.

SuperSeniors June

The Team from Office for Seniors

The latest edition of SuperSeniors is out now!

In this issue, we profile one of the unsung heroes of the Elder Abuse Response Service (EARS) and learn more about the help the service offers.

We also chat with Dr Doug Wilson, 2021 Senior New Zealander of the Year Te Mātāpuputu o te Tau, and Andrea Gaskin, Director and Founder of charity organisation Connect the Dots, about how she’s making the art scene in Auckland accessible to seniors.

There’s advice on how to eat healthy, how to get tech savvy, and updated laws for renters and landlords.

Check it out and be sure to share!: bit.ly...
