oakley sale 5 Reasons Dads Should Take Pat

5 Reasons Dads Should Take Paternity Leave

As moms, we know that our hubbies are just as anxious about our impending water breakage as we are. And at home, w oakley sale e know that they are working overtime to prepare for this baby graciously painting the nursery and packing our hospital bags, to name a few. But at work? Well, that’s outside our jurisdiction. So here’s what us moms think dads could (read:should) do to get the most out of their way too short paternity leave.

1. Take a Leave. The first step to a great paternity leave is to actually take one. According to a 2012 survey of new dads, more than half did not take a leave. And among those who did, the majority took less than a week. This time is more precious than we even realize. employers offer paid paternity leave, according to the Society for Human Res oakley sale ource Management. But us moms are willing to do whatever it takes so we can get to know our new baby together.

2. Communicate. It’s inevitable that new dads will end up playing a mediator role between their office and us. We both need our men. Dads need to make sure that they’re communicating early, often and honestly to both parties. In the office, men should make it well known how much time they intend to take off. The boss’ open ended “take as much time as you need” shp oakley sale eal means “see you in 4 days.” Conversely, don’t tell us moms what we want to hear. Our guys need to give it to us straight you’re realistically able to only take 5 days. Honesty will help our already fragile emotional state deal with the circumstances.

3. You’re Manly. While it’s assumed that mothers will take maternity leave be it paid or unpaid workplace pressures can actually discourage men from taking paternity leave, calling them unmanly, unmotivated and unprofessional. Last time we checked, our husbands are half this team and their life changed just as much as ours when we ran out screaming with a positive pregnancy test. We think it’s sexy and manly to stay home with us for a while.

4. Depressing. And while the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allowed 14 percent of men and 18 percent of women in 2012 to take up to 12 weeks unpaid after baby comes, it only covers people who work for companies with more than 50 employees. All these numbers mean that we have to make the most of our way too short leaves or we should move to Sweden where parents are given 480 days per child.

5. Know How Much We Need You. No stats needed here. Us moms need our guys the first few months (err, years) of babydom. We’re healing both physically and em oakley sale otionally. We’re adjusting to our new roles, our new bodies and our new schedules. Having our partner in crime around comforts and helps us more than we can say in our sleep deprived state.

oakley sale 5 questions with QB coach Glen

5 questions with QB coach Glenn Thomas

Quarterbacks John Parker Wilson (from left), Chris Redman and Matt Ryan jog onto the field for team practice at Flowery Branch on Wednesday, June 6, 2012.

After the game last week, I asked head coach Mike Smith if the competition was between the No. 2 (Chris Redman) and No. 3 (John Parker Wilson) quarterbacks or if it was a battle between No. 3 (JPW) and No. 4 (Dominique Davis).

Rookie quarterback Dominique Davis, East Carolina, throws a pass during team practice.

Here’s what Thomas had to say about the quarterbacks:

Q: How did the quarterbacks perform in the exhibition seaso oakley sale n opener against the Ravens?

A: It was good to get them out there and get some live action with a live rush coming at them. Different scenarios popped up at them during the game and that’s always good. That’s how you improve. You see those different scenarios and we adjust to those.

A: He just keeps improving every day. Red has been around a long time. He knows defenses and what looks he will see. He just has to continue to improve and get the ball to where it is supposed to be. Having some carryover with the offense has helped him with Dirk [Koetter] coming in.

Q: Is this a big year for John Parker Wilson because his practice squad eligibility is up?

A: Ultimately, it’s a big year for everybody. He needs to play well like all of those guys need to play well. That was a good look for him this week (against Baltimore).

Q: How is Dominique Davis performing?

A: Dom has done really, really well. He’s a soft spoken guy. He doesn’t say a lot, he just kind of lays back and soaks in information. If you ask him a question, he’ll answer it. He’s seems to be on top of his stuff.

Q: What impressed you all about Davis and made you all rush out to sign him?

A: That’s all attributed to our scouting department. Dom kind of fell through the cracks and we were lucky enough to get him.
