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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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.
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: email@example.com.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
