Should men get paternity leave from work?
Should men get to go on paternity leave? As mentioned by Linkedin, new fathers should take off a good chunk of time to get used to being a father and to help their wives. The median length of leave for fathers in the U.S. is about one week, compared to 11 weeks for mothers. But according to the U.S Department of Labor, around 70% of men only take 10 days or less for parental leave.
Most people feel that men should keep going to work after their kid is born, because if they stay home for a whole month, where is their monthly income coming from? I feel like it’s a life-changing experience for both the father and the mother, most people may think it is a bigger deal for the mother than the father but they’re wrong. They should both get an equal amount of time off to spend with their newborn.
Do you think men should get longer paternity leave?
Does the birth of a child only impact the female? Why or why not?
I agree with you, but I personally feel men should get the same amount of time off as women do. It should be fair for both of them.
I think they should get a longer paternity leave, and be able to use it how they want, such as how a woman does. While the birth of a child significantly impacts the female more, it does still impact the father, and he should have a chance to be at home with his family if he so chooses.
I agree with you, men should definalty get more time off. Both males and females should get around the same amount of time off.
I think men should get more paternity leave and use it if they choose. Fathers should be allowed to leave and if they don’t want to use it they don’t have to. Not all moms use all of the time that they're given, but they still have the option to. Having more leave time both parents can have time with their kid. Kids' births impact both parents because they both have to get use to taking care of a kid and being parents.

I think men should get more than a week off from work for paternity leave because they need time to adapt to having a child in their life and to help their wife take care of a baby. The birth of a child affects both parents although it affects the mother much more than the father due to the women having birthed a child, which is one of the most painful things.
I think that fathers length of paternity leave is the right length because when the child is born the dad needs to make money for the baby's needs while the mother can take care of the baby and make sure the baby stays healthy. I think the birth of a child impacts both the mother and the father because they both have another human to now take care.
While I do agree with you, I do still think the father should get around the same time off that the woman does. Just because they both worked hard to make that baby so they both should have equal time with it when its born.
I agree with you it is a life-changing expieriance for the mother and father. I think men should have paternity leave to take care of their children. The birth of a child deeply impacts the father and mother. I think it physically impacts the mother more though.
I think men should be able to go paternity leave. They would be able to help the mother, other wise she would be left home alone. The father is going to want time with his new child just as much as the mother does. Both the mother and the father are impacted by this new child.
