1:15 Teenage Abuse Statistics Revealed

Statistics around teenage abuse have been revealed in a new paper, released by the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse. The study found that nearly a third of students reported physical abuse in the past year. While 20 percent of female and nine percent of male secondary school students, reported having experienced unwanted sexual behaviour in the previous year. And it showed 21 percent of women who stayed in women's refuges were aged between 15 and 19 years old. Dr Melanie Beres of the Department of Sociology, Gender and Social Work, University of Otago is the author of the study.

The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment has released a hard hitting report into the state of our country;'s native birds.

Jan Wright's report, "Taonga of an island nation: Saving New Zealand's birds," has seven recommendations to government, to help rectify the situation - including a tourist tax and using genetic science to help with predator control, but also help with species survivial.

The report says 80 percent of our native bird species are in bad shape, with a third in serious trouble.

3:20 The social downside of a loving family

When you read Hairy McClary from Donaldson's Dairy to your kids at bedtime, are you giving them an unfair advantage over other children? Philosopher and professor of political theory, Adam Swift, says there are consequences that can last for generations when there is a big division between the outcomes for kids with involved parents, versus kids who never get bedtime stories and almost raise themselves.

What's the social downside of a loving family? How do we level the playing field?
