For a major part of my childhood, my dad was something of an anomaly among men we knew in that he used to stay home to watch over the house and me while my mom was working elsewhere.
This was the result of a mutual arrangement between them that whoever found work first would focus on their careers while the other partner served as a stay-at-home parent. And while this was an arrangement I was very comfortable with as a kid, it's hard for a mind that young to understand just what was required when you do a job like that.
But while he returned to the workforce when I grew up, I'm not sure that either of us would have traded those years for any opportunity. And for those who can afford such an arrangement and feel the most comfortable within it, you shouldn't have to feel pressured to do any differently.
