Any Stay-at-Home Dads Out There?


I found this article in a Catholic newspaper and was wondering if anyone here could relate?

Are you (or have you been) a stay-at-home dad? Are you married to one? Do you know one?

I’m curious how the experience contrasts to stay-at-home motherhood. I imagine that it would be even more isolating. And perhaps less judgmental?

Or has that not been your experience?


My brother is a stay at home dad. He gets a lot of praise for it, his wife gets a lot of crud (she’s a nurse.)

I get the sense that he doesn’t go out much with the kids but is happy with that; my mom was the same with us. He does live close to my parents so they offer support.
