I think the census data that you saw, which I too have seen, is antiquated in light of the economic downturn and I wouldn't be surprised if there are a 250,000 stay at home dads, of which I am one. Yes it's hard to find your identity, but really, when is it ever easy finding a role for the modern father/male? It's not Leave it to Beaver anymore and I see a lot of fathers' struggling with their roles. Being a stay at home dad is challenging, but I don't miss working, commuting or the petty office baloney that used to drive me crazy. My kid is happy, healthy and learning which is now the only "bonus" I get.
