We know that there has been growing concern around the mental health of children as they continue to grapple with the impact of lockdowns, social isolation, interrupted schooling and in some cases, personal loss to Covid-19.
And while some parents may feel quite helpless in the face of these challenges, my guest today wants to encourage them not to throw their hands up in despair – rather, she believes that strong parental relationships can play an absolutely key role in helping children to deal with anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders.

Guest: Tony Healy
Today we want to look at the issue of whether it is legal for employers to force their employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19. We know the president has said multiple times that nobody will be forced to be vaccinated – but the reality is that some workplaces are already considering making it a requirement for continued employment.
Trade union federation Cosatu warned last week that while it supports vaccination and encourages workers to get the jab, employers don’t have the right to fire employees who refuse to get vaccinated.
