All over the country, the number of stay-at-home dads has more than doubled over the past decade to 176,000, based on the U.S. Census Bureau. But some experts argues that the real figure could actually be in the millions, that is if the definition of the stay-at-home dads is broadened to include dads who work part-time while remaining the principal caregivers.
Related to that debate, a new survey conducted by Boston College has found, many of them are staying at home by choice, not because they lost their jobs.
Brad Harrington, executive director of BC’s Center for Work & Family, and lead author of “The New Dad: Right At Home," confirmed the claim of the survey, that contrary to media reports about laid off fathers who turned themselves as full-time caregivers, most of the men they interviewed report that being a stay-at-home dad is a choice, not simply a reaction to an unanticipated job loss.
