More Dads Staying Home With Kids

Published torsdag 21 januari 2010 kl 10.06

More and more Swedish fathers are taking staying home to take care of their infant children.

During a child’s first 18 months here, either of its parents can stay home with it, receiving just above three-quarters of their regular salary. According to the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” last year fathers on the average took advantage of the benefit for 34 days, compared to 24 days in the year 2000.

While that’s a record level, it still only accounts for 22 percent of the total period, so the newspaper says fathers have a long way to go before they will be sharing equally with mothers.
