The ability to share childcare is something I strongly believe in. When our son was born I too 3 months unpaid leave to support my wife. That obviously had a financial impact but it is something we planned for. Extra help from the government can only be welcomed.
I am sure some employers are going to complain but what they need to be aware of is that the impact of both parents caring for their children will have a positive influence on their future workforce.
