If I was offered this, I would have taken it in a heartbeat. Anything to spend more time with my newborn children, let alone give my wife the time to rest. I do see this as a problem in the US, as it doesn't give fathers as much time as they need with their children; they've been charged (a bit too much, IMHO) with being the family provider.. Which is fine, but the cost of not being there is a high one. Plus the stigma that men in the US have about it really grinds gears, as some think that it (paternity leave) is ludicrous. What do you think? Should men have paternity leave in the US? http://www.npr.org/2014/08/13/33373...ernity-leave-getting-it-is-a-different-matter BL.
