Dad Talk #9 – David Milender on Family Leave and Dads

When David Milender’s son was born he asked his employer for his 12 weeks off that the Family Medical Leave Act allows. They said he didn’t qualify because he’s a dad! He helped them realize that’s not true and he got his 12 unpaid weeks at home. He truly enjoyed his time at home and also thinks we can do better when it comes to time off for a growing family.

About the author, James

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
