Until recently, the father figure was the personification of authority. The parents of old were not involved in the daily care of the children and, in many cases, were absent in their education.

The father established with his son only a distant and formal relationship. Fortunately, little by little, this profile is changing. Men are no longer only involved in housework, but are more aware of the value of their role as father within the family.

Nowadays, many parents already change their children's diapers, feed them, bathe them and take them for walks. An advance in the history of the family. The family reality is changing, causing many families to see the figure of the father and mother as reciprocal in the care and attention of children, thus creating a positive balance in the formation of children.

Furthermore, it would be desirable for both parents and mothers to act in common agreement, each reserving an image and a space of their own with respect to the child. The child must perceive the role of his mother and father as different identities, but equally fundamental. From birth, the child must feel his father through his care, his conversation, his pampering, immediately establishing a physical communication with him, creating a secure and lasting communication bond.

Psychologists affirm that, without losing their masculine identity or virility, fathers can place themselves on the same level as mothers in responsibilities and commitment to their children. When a father plays with his son, shares a story or a movie with him, accompanies him to the park, etc., he will be transmitting knowledge and experiences to his children, something that is extremely important for the emotional development of the child. Children see you as an example to follow. For this reason, parents must be present whenever they need it.

Paternity leave in Spain includes 15 days (20 days if it is the third child), which are the result of the sum of the two days initially corresponding and coinciding with the day of delivery and the next day plus the 13 calendar days of leave by paternity.

The working parent can enjoy them in a row or alternately, depending on their interests and always in accordance with the company for which they work. These days of leave can be requested in half days, which converts those 13 calendar days into 26 calendar days working part-time.

The days of paternity leave must be taken within nine months after the day of the baby's birth. Otherwise, these days of paternity leave will be lost and cannot be accumulated or saved for the birth of another child. It is expected that in the future the Equality Law will extend paternity leave to four weeks as is the case in other European countries.
