5 Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Stay at Home Dad
John Adams is a former PR professional, who now writes a blog about fatherhood and parenting in the U.K. He finds it baffling that people still make assumptions and comments to stay-at-home dads even today.
This summer is the fourth year the father of two has been at home with the kids during the kids’ six-week school break. He will be handling a “whirlwind of family visits, days out to visitor attractions and trips to the park” with his daughters, eight-year-old Helen and four-year-old Izzy.
“Being on my own with the kids will present lots of opportunities for people to make unthinking, insensitive remarks to me,” he wrote on Metro.uk.
He says that since he stopped working full-time in PR, he’s had to “tolerate” various comments about being a stay-at-home dad. Although he says “it comes with the territory,” he decided to share a few things that you should never stay to a stay-at-home dad.
