This post makes me sad. This is the epitome of what is wrong with the world today.

I made the decision this year to say fuck it. And just do it.

The number of times I take my kids to the park, and see other children need help, Down the slide, to get off the swing, whatever, is crazy.

They have these fucking lazy parents that sit on their ass and have coffee with their friends or whatever and dont pay attention to their child.

In the past I wouldnt go near children other than my own for fear of being branded a pedo.

You know what? fuck that. I have decided that if these kids need help on these things, then I will give it to them. They need to be shown that not every man is a predator and that there are people who genuinely care, and like to help people.

I have had one lady freak out at me so far and scream at me not to touch her child. I calmly told her that I have two small children here of my own, and if she wasnt so busy ignoring her basic parenting responsibilities then it wouldnt be needed.

Sorry for the rant, it just pisses me off that males are vilified in this manner

Good morning Helen, we have been quite excited about this post over in /r/NewZealand! I am their designated envoy, my qualifications include being able to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning, and being able to cut and paste.

There were quite a few questions, so I hope you don't mind if I break them up into multiple questions, hopefully it then will be less onerous for you to reply and delight your fellow countrypersons.  On behalf of /r/newzealand, I just want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat.

Without further ado...

  1. Helen, I heard you were instrumental in getting Paul holmes his knight-hood before he passed. Under your government they abollished the titles all together and you were a real advocate for becoming a republic. Why did you push so hard when you were morally against the titles in the first place?

From /u/darthplagerist

  1. You were considered one of the best political managers in New Zealand history from the way you ran the fifth Labour Government. How has your management style changed in the different environment of the UN?
