I just got a call from dodo my friend who has been living in Canada.
The law there entitles her to see her children grow, watch their first steps, see how their first tooth grow….
the law there gives a women 50 weeks and for the Paternity 5 week that the dad can choose to take the moment he wants!
plus the dad is entitled for a 2 days for the delivery!!!!!!
and we in Lebanon are struggling to have 70 days for maternity leave!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you know that all moms and dads in Lebanon have to think what to do after 49 days??? do they put their new born in Kindergarden, do they ask their “hametos” “mother in laws” or any relative to watch over, do they bring a Domestic worker to watch for the new born!??!?!
Do you think dear MPs that these solutions are Safe???? is it how you want Lebanese families to raise the future citizens of Lebanon????!!!!
We have to act!!!
