Father ostracized for taking paternity leave

Taking time off to raise a child.

A new dad recently wrote about his unexpected experience while on paternity leave.

Tom Stocky is the Director of Product Management for Facebook and on his last day of his paternity leave, he reflected on his experience.

During Stocky's four months of paid leave he says he was often ridiculed by other moms because he wasn't working.

"What I never got used to was the double-standard for fathers when it comes to childcare. I experienced it predominantly in three forms: (1) low expectations for fathers, (2) negative perceptions of working mothers, and (3) negative perceptions of "non-working" fathers."

That criticism may be in part, because Stocky is in the minority when it comes to taking time off.

Studies show only 1 in 20 fathers take more than two weeks off after their child was born.
