In Sweden, parents can have "care of child" leave, which entitles them partially paid leave from work when caring for sick children. The practice is known as vabbing, which comes from VAB, or 'vård of barn' in Swedish.
But now more parents are vobbing, a mash-up of the verbs "vabba" and "jobba", by continuing to work from home while they care for a sick child.
Today, two of the three parents admit to vobba while at home, and each year there are more who say they are working at home when they have a sick child.
The survey shows that a majority work to keep up with their duties and two out of three state that they do it because nobody else can cover for them while they are away.
