Paternity leave is wasted on menfolk

How many fathers do you think want paternity leave?

My husband couldn’t wait to go to work the night I returned from hospital with our firstborn.

He thought breast-feeding was a great thing as he didn’t have to do night feeds.

Is it transferable?

Half a million children come from one-parent families. A quarter of a million families are headed by a lone parent. Two fifths of lone parents are headed by a single mother. Can the leave be given to a person who really wants it?
