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.
