    I knew a man who did this. He stayed home with his daughter and somehow managed to start his own business by the time she was in elementary school while his wife worked. He was (still is?) successful with his business.

    The messed up part is that by the time his business was off the ground and they were both working, they got divorced. But it wasn't over him being a stay-at-home dad.

    I lost most of my self-esteem and self-confidence during that period, and there certainly was no shortage of people insulting and degrading me for doing it.

    My wife did not like being the primary homemaker, either.

    Right now, I work full-time and she works 3 days a week.

    Her mom babysits on the days she works.

    This arrangement is working out really well for us.
    Wuss.

    I think people should do what works for them. It would never, ever fly in my house though.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    My own father became a stay-at-home dad due to illness and I must say he was great, perhaps better than my mother. He had amazing patience and seemed to put the same effort into it has he had done into work. I can't say he always liked though but I think that was more to do with his ill health. Certainly from a child's perspective it made no difference. Actually both that I had had neither parent at home because both were working in fact my mom worked like five jobs and so it was just nice for me to see so much of one of my parents!

    I wouldn't mind seeing more stay at home dads, simply because I think it's a gender role stereotype that women are great with children and all that.

    Yup, but I'll never tell why.

    Equality doesn't apply to women alone. Why shouldn't a man be a homemaker?
