Childcare leave for parents of newborn babies

Essay

 I believe childcare for parents of newborn babies should be more readily available in Japan for the following three reasons.
 The first reason is that any kind of unreasonable stereotype is simply wrong. It is wrong to believe that men should work and women should stay at home because that kind of stereotype doesn’t have any sensible and logical reason to believe. That kind of thinking is nothing less than sex discrimination.
 The second reason is that in Japan many people especially male, work too much. Research has always shown that Japanese people work much more than the stipulated hours. So, parental leave can diminish working hours.
 The third reason is that spending as much time as possible with children is very important for children’s education. Recent research has demonstrated that children who spend more time with their parents are better-behaved and more mentally stable. Another research has shown that children who travel a lot with their family have higher scholastic ability than children who don’t spend much time with their family.
 For foregoing reasons, I believe childcare for parents of newborn babies should be more readily available in Japan.
