Myth: Most stay-at-home dads don’t want to be.

Please see this op-ed I wrote on the eve of the National At-Home Dad Network, which lays out the truth.  In short, Pew Research did another bad report using bad data.  They didn’t count stay-at-home dads, they counted a completely different group of people.  The best real statistics available show that approximately 1.8 million men are stay-at-home dads, and they’re doing it because they want to.  Also, the census found that “1 in 5 dads with working wives are primary caregivers to their preschool-aged children.”
