Stay at home dads

Situation Traditionally, the stay-at-home parent has been the mother, but many modern fathers have become a nurturing parent to their children as well. It is now more common than it has been in the past for the father to be the stay-at-home parent. These fathers learn the skills needed to care for children, and some children who grow up with a stay-at-home dad learn to be less stressed, have better social skills, and are less fearful.
