Paternity Leave :)

by Kyle Cole March. 06, 2020 2487 views

After moving to Norway and finding out that dads get time home with their kids was almost a shock to me, especially to find out you still get your salary while spending time with your kids. A couple years ago I had my first paternity leave with my son Kalani and wasn't sure how to navigate that but now I've begun my second with my daughter Mila Annie and thought I'd document this journey.

If I move there now can I get paternity that I missed out on. 😂

I knew that Norway has paternity leave and I personally think it is too bad that the rest of the world does not follow suit. It is such a great idea. Thanks for sharing, really sweet photo.

I love the progressive thinking of Norwegian government (by the way I think some other Scandinavian countries have this program too)!!! Wouldn't it be nice if all countries introduced paternity leave?
Thanks for sharing and looking forward to your journal about the whole experience. Good luck Kyle!
