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.

Your community trust has rebranded. TSB Community Trust is now Toi Foundation, supported by the strapline, a thriving, inclusive and equitable Taranaki.

Both the rebrand, and new strategy (released in 2020), are part of a bold vision to guide the organisation into the future as we look to not only continue support of Taranaki and its people in our traditional, philanthropic way, but invest in, facilitate, and co-create meaningful and effective opportunities that have long-term and intergenerational impact.

Water meters proposal

Christina Persico Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

Hi all,

I am writing a story on New Plymouth's proposal for water meters and I am looking for someone to talk to about their thoughts on water meters (and someone who is willing to be photographed for a story).

What are your thoughts on water meters? Send me an email: christina.persico@stuff.co.nz

Thanks.
