Parents get a lot of money ...
Personally, I would have thought that Germany is very far behind in European comparison. But of course, that always depends on what criteria such an index is created.
Probably the comparatively good placement depends on the financial support, the parents get here lied: That is really quite lush. The federal government therefore does not have to be compulsory, for example, with a child support allowance.
How it comes to the numbers
However, and the index also shows quite clearly, there is a further need for action in the care infrastructure.
For example, 21 per cent of children under three years are cared for in day nurseries or day nurses, while in Denmark they are above 70 per cent. In my opinion, a social rethinking away from the raven-mother complex is also called for.
... but have problems to reconcile child and career
In addition, young academics in Germany often lack time because the newly-bred parents want to get children and their careers together, but they are comparatively late.
Despite the pent-up demand in some areas, the trend for Germany is pointing in the right direction: The Federal Republic has improved, at least according to the index of the DIW, in family friendliness within five years of the second strongest of the examined 19 countries.
