THE NEED

FOR FAMILY HARMONY

“A study of children who witnessed adult violence at home reported that the effect was slightly more distressing than the direct experience of being punched, kicked, beaten or hit by adults. The harm was often considerable and lasting.”

“"There are 20 confirmed cases of child abuse or neglect in New Zealand every day."

"New Zealand is conservatively spending $5.7 billion a year as a direct consequence of family breakdown, or close to 5.5% of GNP ($3000 for every tax payer)."

THE NEED

FOR FATHERING AND
MOTHERING

"Nearly a third of all children in New Zealand grow up in fatherless homes."

"For every dollar spent on a child brought up in a two-parent family, the government spends $10 on a child brought up in a single parent family."

THE NEED

FOR BOY-FOCUSED LEARNING

"Boys make up 73% of students with behavioral problems."

"Boys are more likely than girls to experience attention problems, which affects school success and has a knock-on effect on employment and future education prospects."

"In 2000, 96 New Zealanders aged between 15 and 24 died from suicide - 81 of them were male. Of these young men, 31 were aged 15-19 and 50 were aged 20-24."
