Kid's Sick - Who Stays Home?
Just as the Activistas were discussing: Papas & The FMLS - Is anyone using it? A University of Cincinnati study recently released and looked at dual-working parent families: Who puts family first when a child is sick? Their data "finds a large gender disparity in providing urgent child care, with 77.7 percent of women taking time off from work and 26.5 percent of men reporting that they attend to child-care needs".
If you and your partner both work, how do you decide who stays home with a sick child? How does your workplace treat you're child's sickness & your need to stay home? As a single parent, have you found emergency back-up care that works? What do you do as a working parent when your child is sick?
