There is no Primary song that starts out, “I’m so glad that Daddy stays home,” probably because both the culture and teachings of the LDS Church overwhelmingly encourage the father to earn the living and the mother to raise the family at home. What happens when that arrangement doesn’t work out? Panelists talk about their experiences as stay-at-home dads. How has their unique role molded their self-perception and worldview? What challenges and supports have they encountered at home, in church, and in the larger world? What changes have they gone through in a role that few of their male contemporaries will ever experience?
