News is rife that Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg will take two months off as paternity leave after the birth of his daughter he is expecting with wife Priscilla. The news is come as a surprise to many, considering that Zuckerberg is one of the busiest people on the planet!
Response across the globe
At the same time people all over the world are lauding what Zuckerberg has said to be “a very personal decision.” This is could very well become the cue for the onset of a new trend – a husband going on paternity leave to be with his yet-to-be-born or newly-born baby. Come to think of it, every father-to-be should make it a point to take paternity-leave, and for good reason:
As Zuckerberg himself has said, “Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, outcomes are better for the children and families.”
Becoming hands-on daddy
Taking time off from work will allow fathers to get a chance to become more involved in activities of the child’s care, helping them become a better hands-on daddy.
Enjoy family life
It will also give husbands a chance to take a break from work-life and focus entirely on their new family-life, something which is totally underrated nowadays.
Important moment of life
Paternity-leave is as much a boon for a mother as it is for a husband. Knowing that the child’s daddy is home can become a stress-buster for moms.
A paternity leave will also erase belief that hubbies are not as child-caring and child-loving as the mother.
A paternity leave is also a great way to reinstate equality between a husband and wife in their roles as parents
Most importantly a paternity-leave facilitates better bonding between the father and infant.
