  28. Parental Leave Stories Common Service Development G Paternity leave: Approx.

    1.5 months I started raising a child for the first time with my wife, who was on childcare leave, but decided to take childcare leave because my wife was taking on too much, so I wanted to be involved in it as much as possible, and our first son was so cute that I wanted to spend more time with him. What prompted you to take parental leave? Q1 I realized how difficult it was for my son to sleep when I wanted him to, to stop crying when I wanted him to, and to be in this state at all hours of the day. I think that taking paternity leave allowed my wife and I to spend time away from our children, both physically and mentally. By going out with a child in a stroller, I experienced firsthand both the warmth and coldness of society. One of the difficulties was that, for example, in commercial facilities, floors are moved by elevators, but even if the elevator is dedicated or priority elevators are used, they are often ignored, and it takes time to move, and in some cases, people have to give up. On the other hand, there were those who gave up their seats or gave up their space on the train, for example, and I could not help but feel grateful. What were some of the difficulties or concerns you had while on paternity leave? Q2 As is true of child-rearing itself, no matter how much joy, pleasure, and inspiration you receive from your children, child-rearing is hard and arduous, and cannot be weighed against or subtracted from such positive factors. I think it is important to cherish the emotions and joys of each moment without trying to forcefully calculate the positive and negative aspects, and how to make the best of the time to take a break and refresh oneself. Childcare leave can help, and we hope that you can make good adjustments and take advantage of it.
