Stay-at-home dads reaping rewards
There’s a small increase of stay-at-home dads in Australia, up to 4.6% in2016 from 4.2% in 2011, but we still aren’t as supportive as we need to be according to a report.
“It hasn’t gone up a lot since the 1980s really, and that’s a bit of a surprise because you think it would be more because we’re much more comfortable these days with seeing dad’s caring for the kids and doing the housework,” Anne Hollonds told 6PR Breakfast.
Two stay-at-home dad’s shared their story with Steve to say how rewarding their role is.
“I’ve been pretty blessed to be part of the kids schooling, getting all involved in that sort of thing, and sports,” Matt said.
While Scott was a stay-at-home dad for 12 years and said it was difficult to get back into the workforce afterwards.
