New parents need time away from work to care for their young children and strengthen their relationship, the Institute for Public Policy Research said as it called for paternity leave to be doubled.
Fathers ... have limited entitlements to paid leave, and so they often assume the role of breadwinner while their partner is on maternity leave.
Fathers who take more than a few days off around the birth of their child are more likely to be actively involved in raising their child than those who do not.
Fathers' greater involvement in family life can make it easier for mothers to return to work after taking maternity leave, which helps to raise the family's income and lessen the impact of motherhood on women's careers.
