Dad Shares 5 Things You Should Never Say to a Stay-at-Home Dad

In 2014, an estimated 1.9 million fathers remained home with the kids — accounting for 16 percent of the stay-at-home parent population, according to a HuffPost analysis of U.S. Census data.

Not all of them choose to – some of those men can’t find work, are ill or disabled. But out of those dads who do stay home, 21% say the main reason they do is to care for their home or family.

Back in 1989, when only 5% of stay-at-home fathers said they were home primarily to care for family. So there has been quite a shift – a four-time increase – of men who stay home to care for their children.

While our attitudes toward stay-at-home dads have evolved over the years, there are still some people who are shocked to see a man care for his children.
