When I was getting ready to return to work after the birth of our daughter, Mr. D used a combination of Paid Time Off and Paid Family Leave bond with her. He said it was both the most rewarding and the most challenging few weeks of his life. Thank goodness his employers and coworkers were understanding and supportive about his decision to spend that one-on-one time at home. But, as this article shows, many working parents are still unhappy about balancing their office and home lives. As more and more dads opt to take advantage of FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) or stay at home, hopefully there can be more honest dialogue and transparency in the workplace about working parents’ needs.
