Our first kid is on the way. I also happen to work for a European company where equality for all reigns. Which of course means that there is a gender-neutral "parental leave" policy that means a guy gets as much time as a female after welcoming a new child into their life. I have to declare how long I am going to take off before the child arrives. I get six weeks of full pay. Should I take all six weeks? I think it's "unofficially" frowned upon for a guy to take that long....and frankly I don't think (this could change) that I'll really need six weeks. Any thoughts or recommendations?
