Will Stay-at-Home Dads Eventually Become the Norm?

While the concept of fathers staying home to care for their kids while mothers take on the role of primary breadwinner is not new, the trend is getting a lot more attention due to recession's impact of familes' employment status. Though some dads gripe about their lack of respect in the home, others are celebrating the newfound responsibilities.

In a recent New York Times, former print journalist Michael Winerip wrote about the joy he found in the day-to-day parenting activities he took over when his wife returned to work after 10 years.

As our nation progresses by choice and circumstance, do you think stay-at-home dads will eventually become as common as stay-at-home moms?

I'm sure one day it will be as normal as guys and girls attending school, which also wasn't always the norm.It will probably take a lot longer than it should. I feel really bad for every guy who wants to stay home with the kids just as much as their mom, but has to be the one who has a job, because.. that's just how it works.
