Paternity leave...Let's talk about it.

yellowtapesportyellowtapesport Posts: 4,590 ✭✭✭✭✭
PATERNITY...The man taking off work 'supposedly' to assist in caring for a newborn baby.

Anybody here ever took it?
With the new FMLA law the letting new fathers take off up to 12 weeks (although not all paid) for Paternity leave.

So my question is:
Does this contribute to the constant feminization of our society? Is it just a paid vacation?

You bout to be changin' diapers nigga?
Fuck em, duck em, leave em alone.

    I used it, but not the full 12 weeks.

    I took a week off and 3 vacation days, because 1.) that's the longest I could go while getting paid and 2.) after spending a week at the house, I realized I needed to get back to work.

    FMLA has been around since 1993. Last amendment to the act was in 2015 so that same sex couples could both take off for leave when they have a child/adopt

    When did this change you are taking about occur ?

    Lmao why you looking at it like its some stay at home dad shit and you ain't doing nothing @yellowtapesport ?

    The mom just had a whole human come outa her. Maybe dad don't want her to be the only one waking up in the middle of the night to feed the baby, change diapers and put back to sleep.

    Not to mention what if this ain't their first kid. Dad can split time getting the other kids ready while mom takes care of newborn or vice versa.

    Yea that's just me bullshitin..Believe it or not, I'm a great dad...
    But honestly, I kinda feel I don't need (or deserve?) the time off, because like someone else alluded to, my body didn't change...
    The shit I do for my child(ren)...I don't need no comp days
    Fuck em, duck em, leave em alone.

    But some of my extended family asking when yoy going back to work and asking how long you gone be of I'm like why. But I figured out guys normally don't take off that long to help out. Only thing I had to do was change and do late night feedings, and I felt like me and the kid's have a better bond than they do with they mom but I know it'll flip flop the mom was breastfeeding so the kids had it on tap. While I was off i was able to clean up and get rid of clutter. I wouldn't do it any other way. Other than baby girl made me soft

    I was about to go into that

    a lot of guys dont see the need for it because they dont really contribute to that part of the process at home

    I do more than I care to mention lol, on top of the shit being done that has nothing to do with kids, but HAS to be done nonetheless
