How would "Daddy Leave" help?

Dads often don’t feel as confident as mums to care for their babies but when they substantially share the nurturing role at home – for example when mum goes back to work - this confidence grows. Recent research shows that what we have long called the “maternal bond” is in fact a “parental bond” that relies not on gender but on the habit of caring for a child, which builds those essential neural pathways of attachment in the brain. It’s good for children to have a strong attachment to more than one carer and for partners to share domestic roles, which enhances relationships.

So we know the workplace benefits with increased productivity and relationships at home benefit -but dads want support to negotiate this.
