Having children is not a choice that women make alone. However, childcare is commonly framed as a women’s issue. This kind of thinking puts all responsibility for the challenges of childrearing onto mothers.

The decision within a household for a man to stay home and look after the children as a caregiver, while a woman opts for her career as a primary breadwinner, is a rising trend.
I have been collaborating with dads across the UK who have opted to devote their time to being the primary caregiver.
