How long can a woman stay home when they have a child in United States?
I don't know if this is true - but some one told me three months.

Where i come from a woman can stay home with the child for 12 months and get 80% of salary.

You might wondering why i ask - well you more i hear or read about your country - you more terribly it gets.

Cheers
AP - It's not that it can't be done, but rather people don't really have a clue as to the level of fanaticism and outright obsession that it takes to be successful, let alone get to the level where you can take money out of the casinos on a regular basis. Out of 1,000 people that earnestly try, maybe only one will make it.

Great, stay where you are, we don't want you here. We
already have enough foreigners.

You are absolutely right - they say there is no better country live in where i come from.

I am very lucky to have been able to be a stay-at-home mom for my 4 kids. I know many women here go back to work when the baby is 6 weeks old, no matter how long the government allows. That's all they can afford.

And I'm talking doctors and teachers. The real estate agent I spoke to left the hospital and headed out to show a house with her sister driving her since she wasn't supposed to drive for 6 weeks.

She can stay at home as long as her husband or her savings support her.

We do not want nor do we need any employer mandates or government handouts to let people live off someone else.

Yeah, just because it works well for every other first world country on the planet doesn't mean we should consider it. It definitely doesn't mean that:)

AZ, I have to respectfully disagree.

The government should be incentivizing people to have children. Especially people with jobs and can afford it more easily. The days of one parent working are over unfortunately.

Imagine if everyone stopped having kids...

Oh, and the answer is 0. There is no paid maternity leave in the US. If you have been working somewhere for a year, and it's not a small business, your job will be held for 3 months. Of course, if a woman is put on bed rest before she delivers, then she is SOL.
