Seeking work as a stay at home parent, I came across this article: http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/29/the-doubts-of-a-stay-at-home-dad/ .
One of the contributors talks about his experiences after reading the book “Torn” by Samantha Parent Walravens. The dad shares some of his fears about creating an anti-feminist model for his daughters, procrastinating the development of his retirement fund and also examining the experience of other SAHPs. I get the impression that knowing what he knows now, he’d do it all over again. He also asks some thought provoking, unanswerable, (fear-generating) questions to the reader.
It sort of makes me want to read the book, but not on paper. I’m still holding out for my tableto.
Now, I’m going to take my sweet nugget babbys to a park. Screw housework, in the name of SCIENCE!
