What's your opinion about stay at home dads?

Advantages,Disadvantages ..

I see nothing at all wrong with it. In today's society, couples have to really pitch in and do whatever it takes to make it. If the Mom is the one who can earn the better living, and they are comfortable with just her income, I see nothing at all wrong with it. If the children are young and not in school, think about the daycare expense that is saved.

Mums and dads who can organise to stay at home (cottage lifestyle) or work at home are doing everyone a favor.
Working on a vegie garden, home schooling, DIY projects, low driving kms, are all other ways of life better than the rat race.

I was a stay at home dad in my first marriage. it is a job taking care of three babies. I admire anyone who has to deal with it.

Do you think that it has negative impact on your social life?

I'm a stay at home dad, I guess. I'm actually retired. My wife usually kicks me out as though I were a cat.

I think that if someone needs to stay at home it should be the wife.

yepper, I agree, but in my case, my wife could not take the stress of taking care of three babies. tried a babysitter for a week, so we both could work, but one paycheck was going to childcare.

That was part of my point Edward. Childcare is soooo expensive, as are full time babysitter's (and far to many horror stories). In most cases it is the wife that stay's home, but times have changed so much, it is not uncommon for it to be vice-versa. I think each family has things that work for them....

My husband has been a stay at home dad for the last eighteen years. you just need to set rules as to who does what and stick to them. If he is to do the cooking, shopping, washing or whatever, don't start doing them when he doesn't do them exactly the way you would have done. you both loose out that way. realize that everything won't be done "your" way and live with it. otherwise you will end up taking over his jobs, and you will resent it. And he will let you do more and more of what is supposed to be "his" job. Then he will feel guilty. it's a loose/loose situation. Decide who does what and leave it that way. and NEVER make him feel he isn't contributing just because his "job" doesn't pay any money. His contribution is in helping you to go work for pay and lift some of the "homework" off you.
