Wife of Infamous Gofundme "Help Me to Be a Sahd Dad" Speaks

Image from "Mr. Mom" (1983)
Someone asked me a little while ago, whether or not I was planning on writing another blog for Fodder 4 Fathers. Now while I really love writing stuff for Adam’s page and I would be happy to do it any and every day of the week, I find that my husband usually says most of it well enough. Some of you may remember my last blog (insert link here) responding to a whole bunch of women who weren’t too happy with him over something that he said (in my house we call that Tuesday). But because I completely disagreed with them and because they brought me into it, I felt the need to come to his defence. Not that he ever needs my help; he does a pretty decent job of defending himself on his own. So what I said was as soon as someone or something “ticked me off” again, I’d sit back down and bang out another blog.

How to Get Around the Working Mom/Stay-at-Home Dad Stigma

FAN QUESTION:

Hello Mrs. Fodder! Just wanted to bend your ear on this stay-at-home dad subject. When my first husband and I were married, we talked a lot about him staying home and taking care of the kids because I earned more money than he did, and it was more beneficial for me to work than for him. I recall being quite all right with this concept and knew he would be a great stay-at-home dad. My only worry was what others would think. Would they think I was not a good mother and that's why we chose dad? Would they think that work was more important to me than my children? Would dad have a closer relationship with them than I would since I would be the one working all day? Have you had these same questions and, if so, how did you deal with them or what conclusion did you reach to help make your decision?

Thanks for your time!
