Real Men Wear Baby Carriers: An Analysis of Media Portrayals of Stay at Home Fathers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There is a rise in stay at home fathers due to the recession as well as more women seeking to work outside the home or return to school (Petroski & Edley, 2006). Although this shift for a man from a traditional role to a non-traditional role is growing, more research is still required in order to gain an understanding of males as primary caregivers to their children. Through this study, a series of interviews were conducted with stay at home fathers (SAHF) in order to gain more knowledge concerning the role of a stay at home dad along with how media play a part in their daily lives and how media portray fathers. A variety of themes were uncovered including the stigma attached to being a SAHF, the media’s representation of fathers, and the fathers’ desire to see more SAHFs featured in the media.
