Men’s experiences as fathers are more varied than popular culture would have you believe. Although the doors are beginning to open a little wider for men who want to take on duties that were traditionally only part of Mom’s domain, there is still a lot of stigma to battle.
Today, in honor of Father’s Month, Nate Brewer talks to Dan about his experiences as a stay-at-home Dad. He explains both how he made the decision to stay home with his kids, and how people tend to react to the revelation that parenting is his full-time job.
If you are also a stay-at-home Dad, Nate’s story will help you feel less alone. If you have some assumptions about what being a stay-at-home Dad means–playing video games in your pajamas all day, perhaps?– his story will likely entirely change your perception.
