Tell us: What is it really like bringing up kids in Switzerland?

A recent study suggested Switzerland is the least family-friendly country in Europe. But are things really so bad? Share your own experiences with our readers by filling in our survey here.


The survey by UNICEF looked at government policies on paid parental leave for mothers and fathers, accessibility of childcare services offered up until school age (6 years old), and breast-feeding rates.   

It placed Switzerland at the bottom of the table largely because of a lack of fully-paid maternity leave guaranteed to mothers and to the fact that there is no statutory paternity leave for dads in Switzerland.

But is the situation in Switzerland really so dire?
