I think, in the long run, families would be much healthier if men also got a few weeks of paternity leave. It could also help temporary workers out as well, creating jobs that weren't there before. A mother would be far more relaxed and confident if she had an extra pair of hands during the first few weeks after a baby is born. The family could bond better and there would be fewer problems, down the line, for families. It would make for happier, healthier families.
