Being a House Dad

I have been doing the old House Dad thing for a few weeks and often wondered what other people think of the situation I am in.  Do other people, friends and family think I am being too slack quitting a full time job in order to look after my boys?  Do you wonder what other people perceive you as?

I can assure you, looking after 2 boys is the hardest work I have ever submitted myself to.  In a standard 9 to 5 job – similar to my last employment, working seems like a holiday in comparison.

You need to appreciate and acknowledge everything you have accomplished with your children.  The concept of full time parental guidance is a job in itself.

  1. I’m now 19 and experiencing being a dad. I must say although it feels good it’s still hard. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but to be honest, the hard part is having to balance time. My daughter is great and makes managing her never dreadful. -Teen dad
