Stay-at-home dads are not as popular in American society. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, “There are an estimated 105,000 ‘stay-at-home’ dads. These are married fathers with children under 15 who are not in the labor force primarily so they can care for family members while their wives work outside the home.
Most of us stay-at-home dads strongly disagree with this statement! We decided to be an at home dad, because:
- We provided the needed support to a “working mom” who has a corporate job and who would be adversely effected by taking an extend leave of absents from her job.
- We care more about co-parenting our child instead of dropping them off at day care.
- We have more flexibility in our job or our businesses that we can work from home or outside of the 9-5 range.
