Stay at home Dads.
« on: June 20, 2014, 07:37:51 AM »
Are there any stay at home Dads out there. Wondering what it feels like to be one. I am not asking about people in Chinuch.

I have a job in Chinuch that I do from home.
To be honest I wouldn't call myself a stay at home dad, I'm in my office 6 hours a day working.

that's my point they aren't. Going to seder and driving the kids to the babysitter after seder doesn't qualify. A true stay at home dad is responsible for cooking,  cleaning and other housekeeping chores as well as looking after and taking care of the kids.

Right. That's why I said:

But for that reason I don't get what you said:

i felt it was necessary to state it as part of the questions as one may thimk he is like a stay at home dad eventhough he is in kollel considering he is tasked with taking care of the kids and making sure they are at the babysitter etc

It depends on the dad. And the kids. And the mother's schedule.

Do you believe so because thats what you are used to or because you truly feel that way? And if you feel that way, what are your thoughts?

I truly feel that way.
My thoughts are with all those who end up being stay at home dads.
