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.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

The jewel in Inglewood’s elderly-care crown

Marinoto Rest Home

Marinoto Rest Home is described as ‘the jewel in Inglewood’s elderly-care crown’, and is owned by the Inglewood Welfare Society, a charitable non-profit organisation.

It was set up by the community for the community in 1971, and as such there is a deep sense of pride as the homes’ dedicated staff strive to provide residents with what is essentially, their home away from home.
