What it means to be a new father in Colorado Springs June 16, 2021 June 16, 2021 admin

In Colorado Springs, where the term “paternity leave” has become a common refrain, there is a term for what is happening to fathers.

It’s called paternity leave, and it’s also what some parents in Colorado think is a big deal. 

Paternity leave is something that’s not common in the rest of the United States, but that’s just because Colorado Springs is the state with the fewest dads in the nation, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

“I think it’s important for dads to take paternity leave,” said Scott Elling, a father of two who works as a personal trainer in the city.

Elling’s wife, Jen, is pregnant with their third child.

“It’s very important for her, and for me, to be able to do the things I love to do.” 

It’s important to be clear that it’s not the time off that matters most, said Elling.

“I’m not going to be home on my day off for anything else, or on a weekend,” he said.

The Pew report also found that parents who take paternity time have better mental health, relationships, and parenting outcomes.

But the report does not explain why it’s more common in Colorado than other states.

It says parents who use paternity leave are more likely to live in areas with high levels of poverty and lack of opportunity for those with disabilities.

There are more than 500 million working dads in America, according the Pew report.

It found that there are an estimated 16.5 million working fathers who are not working, and that one in three working dads is on paid leave.

That means the Pew study found that one out of every three working fathers is not on a paid parental leave policy.

“Paternity leaves are really just a way to help men and their families get back to work,” said Jennifer Nocera, a mother of three who is currently a teaching assistant at the University of Denver.

For Elling and Noceria, paternity leave is a way for them to spend some quality time with their families.

It allows them to connect with their kids while also working on their career goals.

Noceria said she can feel the positive impact that she’s having on her children when she works out with her son.

“I’m able to be with him and have fun, because he can play and be a kid,” she said.

“It’s also an opportunity to be around my family, and to be part of it.

So it’s a positive, fulfilling thing.”
