IT consultant takes 7 months with the kids

When Magnus, an IT consultant from Stockholm, told his boss he was taking off for 7 months to be on paternity leave, he told him it was no problem at all. “They encourage you to leave work to spend time with your children,” he told me.

How’s that for progressive?

I spoke to Magnus at a local Open Daycare. He talks about the ups and downs of paternity leave with his son.
