What are my thoughts about society's perception of being a stay-at-home parent? You know, it's funny - I've seen comedians belittle the profession of being a stay-at-home parent. I've also seen the media portray them, the occupation, in a certain light. And I think that, you know, from a stay-at-home dad's perspective, it's been really important for me to kind of fight back and push back a little bit on that. You know it is a difficult job. It's one of to most important jobs, if not the most important job there is. You know, you are fostering ambition and curiosity within your kids. You are responsible for who this person turns out to be. You know, I also think that there have been a lot studies recently that the more involved a father is with their kids during those formative years, the better off they are as they move into being teenagers and beyond.
