I want to get paid for changing diapers, but i don’t want to run a day care

Our society does not recognise the work done at home any more. We should take care that it becomes revalued.

Though at the time it does not bring in money, the stay at homers should be able to get social and financial help when they ‘retire’ and their time spend ‘non-paid’ at home in their time of career should be taken up as worthy work time, so that it counts for the necessary 45 years of work to be able to get a retirement fund.

Being a mostly-stay-at-home dad is fun, but also hard. Some days I wish I got paid for each diaper I changed, but that would only happen if I worked at or owned  a day care, so no thanks. I’ll clean my kids butts, and you can clean yours. Here are some of my favorite family moments this fall.

    Reblogged this on Stepping Toes and commented:

    On the net can be found several blogs where parents share their experiences of bringing up children. Only a few of them are from fathers who took on the role of houseman. By some of them we feel some regret they did not make it on the paid labourforce, other do feel at home in their role many in our society do not recognise as a full-worthy job.
