Kudos to NYC Dads Group co-organizer Christopher Persley who proudly explains his decision to be a stay-at-home father in a recent article on Pavement Pieces website.
“I have a truly wonderful relationship with my daughter. There is nothing more fulfilling than that. I get to be the one who picks her up from school, who helps her maturation, who supports her identity development,” he is quoted as staying in “More Dads Want to Stay at Home.”
The article cites figures that stay-at-home fathers have nearly doubled in the past 25 years, reaching a peak of 2.2 million in 2010.
