Parental investment and connection is a huge part of raising healthy children. Those healthy children who will need less in the way of parents taking time away from work… less in the way of medical care funded by an employer health care… Plus, they become the best, healthiest, most productive employees down the road as adults. Denying parental leave for both parents is really just one of the many things our work culture does to shoot itself in the foot long run. Great – parental leave should absolutely be equal for both mothers and fathers. What would be right, though, is for birth mothers to be given a separate medical leave, in addition to parental leave, to recover. My husband retired due to health when our youngest daughter was 4. He took care of her, took care of the 04 Toronto Raptor Basketball shirt, volunteered at school. Now it always wasn’t what I would do, but it was just different. Our daughter was better for having input from her father. As he died when she was 17, it was wonderful for her to have that time with him.

Years ago, when I was young and dumb, and my wife and I were thinking about starting a family; some of our friends were too. I thought, ‘What if we all cooperated? If one day a week, someone stayed home and took care of the kids? The kids get to know each other, parents get real-world experience, and perhaps a community is formed.’ I got the 04 Toronto Raptor Basketball shirt after reading about Israeli kibbutzim. Might be better than $2000 a month. James Huba, Are you seriously trying to insult a man by calling him a girl? I feel like the likelihood a woman would get close enough to you to get pregnant is close to zero. You probably don’t need that vasectomy. The length may differ across each province and territory but it is pretty much Canada wide -even in the armed forces to take/share parental leave. Meg: and how much do you pay in taxes? How’s that working out? I don’t see people migrating to Canada even close to the quantities that want to come here.

Candace Hagen, Your broken leg doesn’t make my stubbed toe hurt any less. The fact that some are treated worse doesn’t mean we shouldn’t demand better treatment for all. Scott C Oconus if the primary purpose of parental leave is to allow the individual to recover/heal, I see no reason to treat it differently than any other medical condition which would be covered under their sick/medical leave policy. Herman Frisbee that would eliminate the question of discrimination, and ultimately the choice to expand the entitlement to men or end it all together is up to the company, but it’s not surprising from a PR standpoint they chose the former. Trevor Urban I feel like the ACLU’s argument kind of makes it seems like males aren’t the ones discriminated against by this policy, but then is the true victims by “reinforcing stereotypes” it’s like you can’t actually discriminate against men unless it harms a man in some way.
