Jay Fagan, professor of social work at Temple, says the number of men choosing to stay home with their children has been steadily growing. The reasons are often financial, with their wives making as much or sometimes more than them. "A lot of stay-at-home fathers do complain of feeling isolated and not having support," Fagan said. "Just about all have had some experience with feeling stigmatized — being in a playground and mothers not including them."
