Over 4,000 kids living in motels

RNZ reports:

The number of children living in motels has reached a record high, despite the Government’s pledge to combat child poverty.

As at March 31, there were 4368 children living in motels across the country – up by 480 in three months. At the end of December there were 3888 children in motels.

Call me old fashioned, but I think kids should grow up in houses, not motels.
