I am a "stay at home dad" of two (5&3) and work for the local before & after school club! As live in a small sometimes snobby village you can imagine the reaction i get from some of the mums (i refer you to my pic)

I have been at home since my daughter was born(5yrs) so i am used to it now.The funny thing is you would think that would be most womans view but its not! All the negative comments/attitude i have had has been from woman,some dont even speak to me!
I love working with kids you get to run about,play football and have a right laugh,some of the others i work with though do nothing but moan!
I start college tommorow on my child play course thing,so i guess ill have all the odd looks whispering again from some,but luckily i dont care what anyone else thinks!

Good for you! Woman can be viscious.
Its great example for the children to see a male working in school/nursery enviroment.
I agree that workin with kids is great as you get to be one yourself and children dont judge!
I can go into Nursery feeling like crap and all it takes is for one of the kids to notice and come hug me and it makes it all better :D .
I got alot of stairs to begin with (from the parents ofcourse) because of my image, but this what the kids loved about me.

I understand why, but that shouldnt matter, you hug your own kids, whats wrong with hugging others if they need it when there upset.
We always ask the mums how they liked to be comforted and most say a cuddle works, so thats what we do.

I think we had the same thread not long ago ... but not to worry, it gets us another post :D

I graduated in Business Admin a few years back. I work for a major freight forwarder around Heathrow Airport, and I do export consolidations.
