We in the United States could learn much from Sweden's government. A government-subsidized parental leave would run the same gamut of feelings and derision that Sweden endured but Sweden's looking to the long-term advantages of making parenthood an important part of the societal norm is what is lacking in the US. All of our "fixes" are short term, unfortunately. We are constantly tinkering with our programs instead of looking long-term at what will influence change. Good for you, Sweden!
