Case Study: Dr Robin Long

"I am taking 4 months Shared Parental Leave at the same time as my partner.

"This allows me to share the care of our new daughter with my wife.  As my son attends pre-school full time, I can also spend time with my new daughter during the week and then dedicate more time to my son at the weekends; this allows me to bond with my daughter but ensure that my son does not feel left out by the new arrival."
