Dads have a choice to make when they welcome a new child to the world… stay home or not. Unfortunately our society doesn’t see staying home as important. Most employers don’t even offer paid time off for moms. Even fewer offer it for dads. It turns out though that there are huge benefits to staying home. Not only does it help dad bond with his new baby, it helps mom too. Dr. Richard Petts from Ball State University shares the findings of his study on paternity leave and talks about how dads can find ways to have a bigger impact at home.
