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.
