Stay at Home Dads- Uncommon and Exceptional Findings from the 2013 DDB Life Style Study®
June 17, 2013
While 80% of American adults believe it is perfectly fine for a man to be a stay-‐at-‐home parent, few men actually are.

But, the number of married men who are deciding to assume this role is climbing. This rise has been attributed to the job market, increasing cost of child care, and even the enlightened perspective of a generation of new parents who themselves were raised in households where gender roles bucked century-‐old trends – with more “involved” Dads and a record number of Moms working outside of the home.
