A new British study finds that "stay-at-home-dad" households are on the decline.
Whether people are abandoning social experiments with role of men ... or simply surrendering to economics ... it's falling out of favor.
As The Telegraph reports from across the pond: “For years the number of stay-at-home dads has been rising, as more men take on responsibility for looking after the home and family. But now the trend appears to be reversing, with the number falling sharply to a three-year low - and experts say the novelty of being a ‘new man’ could be wearing off.”
Some might've tried it with a sense of enlightenment, but the study reflects a downward trend already seen here in America.
Here in the U.S., stay-at-home dads have trended downward for three decades – because the roles of both parents have evolved, with both parents sharing the load of the responsibilities of parenting.
Less than 1 in 4 men at home are taking care of children, according to some statistics. Many men classified as “at-home are dads” are actually ill, disabled, in school, unemployed or not seeking work – and not home with the express purpose of caring for kids.
