Should fathers be allowed paternity leave? By: Alexis N. Gee
I think all fathers should be allowed to have paternity leave as well as the mothers, who are allowed maternity leave. This gives the father a chance to bond with his newborn baby.
What is Paternity Leave? The time a father can take off from his current job to spend with his newborn child.
Why should fathers get leave? Bond with the newborn Take care of household things Take care of the family as well
Examples of fatherly duties
Qualifications for leave The man has to be the biological father or the adoptive father of the child. He has to have a job.
If the father has started a new job, he has to work a full year before he takes off for leave.
Paternity leave all around the world is different. Not every country or state has the same notifications.
Many people believe that fathers shouldn’t have paternity leave.
A mother has to go through 9 months of changes with her body and her emotions.
Changes in Woman Her body figure changes Very emotional
Could a man deal with all of the things a mother has to go through with pregnancy???
Real Life example Years ago a woman had a sex change to be a man and then she/ he wound up getting pregnant. The story was featured on Oprah and was aired nationally. It caused a lot of controversy. The man to day has had 3 children and has separated from his wife.
With the help of someone else, the mother is guaranteed to have a lot of stress relieved from her.
In conclusion, I believe every father should have a chance to take off leave to spend with his newborn child. Not only is it benefiting him but it benefits the mother and the baby.
