This is a public service announcement. I want to let you know about a new series I am about to launch on Dadbloguk looking at work life balance.
Stay at home dad / work at home dad
These articles are based on several year’s experience of life as a stay at home dad (SAHD) and latterly, work from home dad (WAHD). Find out what you need to consider if you want to become a stay at home dad, what you can expect and challenges you are likely to face.
I love the school holidays. With no school run and less pressure, they’re a great way to spend quality time with the kids undertaking activities we often don’t have time for. These breaks come with a catch though. What is it about the school holidays that takes a normally organised, vaguely competent parent and turns them into a disheveled wreck?
Several years ago, I gave up my career and left full time employment. The reasons are complex, but I found I couldn’t balance fatherhood and family life. After years of writing this blog and engaging with mums and dads, I know I’m not the only man who feels this way.
I often get asked how I feel about earning less than my wife and what it’s like being married to a woman who provides materially for the family. For many people it is novel to meet a couple like Mrs Adams and I, where she goes out to work whereas he stays at home and does the domestic stuff and bulk of the childcare.
