998 May 18, 2007 Mellissa Josey Harford, NY My huband and I are expecting parents, and we feel that spending quality time with our babies is important. However, we are faced with the fact that we may not be able to afford to do this. As a father he only gets the time off that he has put in for vacation. He feels that if he is lucky he will have two weeks. When you use all the time you have saved up, what does that leave you will when your child is sick or for medical visits etc.

When you read about both parents recieving paid leave for the first year in counties overseas, for example Sweden it makes you wonder where are prioties are here in the United States.
