What’s an acceptable paternity leave if your agency has unlimited vacation?

I would do 3-4 weeks right off the bat. Then take additional weeks at the 6,9,12 month mark (roughly). Babies are all kinds of different challenges in the first year. So while time off at the beginning is important. Your partner will appreciate the extra hands in later intervals after the initial family support tapers off.

When I had a baby my husband was home for 2 weeks straight. I think 3 would have been even better

Incredibly complicated question. On the one hand, u r entering into a time in ur career when u will take more than u give, in terms of sick days, family leave, etc. As long as u agree to cheerfully pay that debt forward to the next generation of parents, and try to minimize the impact on ur peers in real time, I say take whatever time u feel u need. But one reality is that older parents who didn’t get paternity leave may not be as enthusiastic about paying something forward that they didn’t receive. Just a wild ass guess, but I’d reckon they would interpret anything more than two weeks as u milking the system. Since older parents in the agency tend to b the ones who decide who stays and goes during layoffs, I don’t think u can’t afford to ignore their feelings, even if u don’t agree with them.

Make sure to discuss it thoroughly with your (work) partner and supervisor way in advance. Not sure where those suggesting six months work, because I’d feel ok about three weeks, happy with four, and thrilled with five weeks or more. Also, unless you’ll be using daycare, go for an agreement to work from home one day a week for the next 4-6 months. Your baby-mama will appreciate both the partnership and the companionship. And you’ll be a better employee. I’m a dad, btw.

I had 6 weeks and it was great. Lots of time to self care and take care of my wife and newborn. I had only 2 weeks with my first and I regret not taking more. You will NEVER get that time back.

I took two weeks. Three would've been nice.

For hip agencies, 6 weeks is the norm for dad, 12 for mom.

Do they specialize in hip and knee replacements ?

4 weeks at least.

6 months is the law in many countries. So it must be reasonable

Unfortunately in the US, reasonable and acceptable are not the same thing.

Hi Fishes, Need help with a tax query. I am earning 85k/month now. Thinking to purchase a land of around 15L, not just for investment but to build our own house on it in future. Though I can somehow manage it without taking a land loan. But I was wondering if I can take some to avail tax benefits. So my doubts are - Can I avail tax benefits (like home loan) before construction? If I take the loan just to enjoy tax benefits then how much loan should I take at most? Have only ~68k EPF in 80C

Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child. Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?

Might be off topic, but guys please, take care of your health. I've been rejected by all companies in the last 2 months. I had my Walmart interview today and it went really well. And guess what? I got a rejection email. I felt dizziness while working and fell down today. I had to go to the doctor due to the anxiety and stress I was carrying since the last 2 months. It has affected my health. It's important to push yourself to achieve your goals, but don't forget to "Live" in the process.
