MAN OF THE HOUSE: Benefits of Having a Stay-At-Home Husband

- By

Greater Paternal Bond

One of the main reasons a man will decide to stay at home is because of children. While the bond between a mother and child is usually immediate and considered the primary relationship, a house husband who is also a father will have an opportunity to stay home with their children and play more than just a supportive or secondary role in their children’s lives. The bond between father and child is equally important and absolutely necessary for the emotional and social development of the child. Good fathers who are present at home bring just as much emotional balance and security to their children’s lives as the mother does, and gives them a better understanding of the full role of parenting. While some men feel that parenting is women’s work, many full-time working fathers secretly wish they could stay home more to spend quality time with their children.  House husbands not only get to experience their baby’s important milestones, but they will also build a closer relationship with their children and bond with them a lot more than fathers who are absent because they simply work too much.
