  1. So lazy men are seeking part time work-big deal, they never worked for their family anyways they worked for themselves!

    Men already study less, under perform and now you all want to encourage them out of the workforce-seriously what is your problem with high achieving men-you jealous???
    seems like it cause for you all the holiest of the holy is the stay at home dad-Lol

      What on earth are you trying to say? Whatever it is I suspect you may be in the wrong place.

      • Akash Charles says:

        what I am saying is this website holds the SAHD as the highest of the highest

        what is wrong with a man who wants to provide for his family and has career goals as well?

        there is more to being a good man than looking after your children

        the goal here seems to be to create an exact opposite of the 1950′s-you do realise the 60′s happened because of the 50′s culture-the same thing will happen to the children of these SAHD’S

        My point is in media men are constantly put down for being successful-they do worse in school -etc, surely a well educated man is a good man as well?

  2. Robert- Nice piece, and this is encouraging news. This is totally consistent with what I’ve been finding in my professional and academic work in this area. Boston College recently did a big study on w-f issues for dads that is blowing my mind right now.
