☆  viewpoint  観点


Someone’s viewpoint is the way that they think about things in general, or the way they think about a particular thing. So, this week’s Q&A is about paternity leave, which we looked at yesterday. “What is your viewpoint on paternity leave?”

So, how do you feel about paternity leave? Is it a good idea? Do you think it will encourage Japanese people to have more children? Did you realize that fathers could take a whole year of paid paternity leave, like I talked about yesterday? What is your viewpoint, paternity leave – good or bad? Necessary or unnecessary? What are the benefits and disadvantages?
