Beginning in 1993, The Family Medical Leave Act requires 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave for mothers in the United States who have a newborn or newly adopted child. The Society for Research in Child Development is drafting a recommendation for a revised maternity leave policy. As an expert in early childhood development, you have been asked to write a brief 150-word position paper that makes an empirically-supported recommendation for a specified timespan for parental leave under the new act.
