Resources for stay-at-home dads

There are a lot of groups, support, education, otherwise developmental for moms. There's Mommy and Me, there's you know those types of groups. I don't hang out with a lot of stay at home dads because there quite honestly aren't that many support groups like that or little preschool groups like that for dads. I personally don't know why that is. I think because the paradigm shift is still occurring. So it's a lot of dads go to Mommy and Me classes and they just kind of deal with the fact that it's called Mommy and Me and really don't raise much of a fuss about it. But I find that stay at home dads don't really tend to congregate, because I think dads, and men in general, don't necessarily congregate in that fashion socially as much as women do. But also I think a lot of stay at home dads are still struggling with their identity as stay at home dads. Especially if they came from a very distinct professional career. I also think that social media, Facebook, Twitter and just the internet in general, makes it easier for dads to quote, unquote, congregate in that way because they can be a little more anonymous about it. They don't have to be so touchy/feelie about it. And that's a much better resource usually for dads who may want to reach out to each other about parenting tips, but that doesn't really happen all that often.

Stay-at-Home Dad

Scott Lenz was born in Lewisberg, Pennsylvania. By the time he reached 9th grade, he had been to eight schools, which explains a lot about his social awkwardness. However, his wife Suzanne and two kids - Jaron, 13 and Georgia, 10 - went to less than five schools combined, so it all evens out.

He was the original rat mascot for Chuck E. Cheese, and since then has been a record store manager, music journalist, television documentarian and, most recently and importantly, a stay-at-home dad. His single greatest hope is that ABBA will one day reunite.
