Uncle D actually gives moms 24 weeks. 16 weeks for family leave so parental leave, sick parent leave, sick family members etc.

EY does this already.

Uncle D does this alreasy

ACN has this somewhat. Mothers get base 8 weeks for leave and then either parent can apply for 8 other weeks of "primary care leave" so mothers can get 16 weeks base. Plus we can add on PTO on top of that (as much as you want). I'm going on leave soon and will be out for 20 weeks.

I have a dog. Don't get time off, but I get my sleep.

In Canada, you get 1yr parental leave (between mother & father) by law. Paid

Hello Childfree Friends! Question (slightly grim but I intend for it to be lighthearted)— what do people without kids plan on doing with their estate/ wealth once you’re sniffing the daisies? People always talk about how they’re “working to leave something for the kids” and unfortunately I don’t think my fur baby legally counts. It’s been something on my mind lately & I’d love to hear what others who are child-free are planning. There’s obviously spouse, parents, siblings, but what else?

Our nanny doesn’t start full time with us for another month. Until then, she has agreed to care for our 2 month old and her current family’s 10 month old together, at her current family’s home.
