In Sweden so many men are going on parental leave they've earned their own special name, Latte Dads. What's your take on this? Should this be the norm?

I wonder how giving men the opportunity to more actively play a part in their child's early early years will help improve long term outcomes for kids and families? If nothing else, better bonding opportunities for dads.

Australia get your act together and introduce this here for a better quality of life! Two weeks paid dad leave just does not cut it!

Well, Canada has recently increased parental leave from 12 months to 18 months for the parents to use any way they want but for now only 12 months is paid. Many employers top up state benefits to 95 % of pay for those 12 months.

There's nothing bad about this! I am not loving the name but the idea of dads spending more time with their kids is a great one!

‘Latte dads’ also known as ‘dads’, because it shouldn’t be so weird that it has a name.
