Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will take two months of paternity leave after his daughter is born. This tells all would-be fathers to do the same. Zuckerberg is only taking half of the leave Facebook gives male employees, but it sets a good example. Zuckerberg wrote: "Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, outcomes are better for the children." He added: "We're excited to start this next stage in our lives."

In the past decades, more companies have given paternity leave. However, many men do not take up this benefit. Technology companies often look after employees best, but even their male employees do not take the leave. Many continue working so they don't fall behind on projects or miss a promotion. An employment specialist gave some advice to men who were unsure about taking paternity leave: "Be courageous".
