Letter: Our Support for the FAMILY Act

Early Childhood
Poverty & Family Economics

Paid family leave promotes healthy child development and promotes family economic security. It gives parents a chance to adequately care for their newborns or children with special health care needs. For example, men are more involved with their child’s direct care when they are able to take off two or more weeks after the birth of their child and women are available to breastfeed their newborn.

Access to paid family leave has significant positive health implications for children and families by allowing parents to care for their children. For example, men are more involved with their child’s direct care when they are able to take off two or more weeks after the birth of their child and mothers are available to breastfeed their newborn.
