I asked this question to my dh he said "no way" he doesn't want to be a SAHD because of two reasons: (quoting my dh)
1.- "It's boring"
2.- "They (our children) horse around"

I think this is JUST like SAHMOMS. There are some who can and some who cant. My cousin was going batty within 3 days of staying at home! She was stressing her kids out and was miserable. She is now working again and EVERYONE is happier. I LOVE LOVE LOVE staying at home mom. People ask if I get bored and I think they are CRAZY! I am never stopped I have tons of stuff going on ...in house and out! BUT my hubby would lose his mind as a SAHD. Nothing would EVER get done and the kids would run wild! LOL. I really think it depends on the person and no one should think a dad that does is better or worse then a dad that doesnt...and vice versa...JUST LIKE SAHM'S!

My son is a SAHD. He is also a full time student but he does everything. All his wife does is work and breastfeed. He takes care of the toddler, shops, cleans, cooks, takes the toddler to the doctor, everything. I take care of my grandson when my son goes to class and on her days off and most of his wife's days off.
Why does he do it? She can't. She won't. She wants to work. He's good at it. He is enjoying being with his son. He is good at it. He knows he is the much better parent. She doesn't even want to be with her child on her days off.
